Kent Sevens RugbyPosted on: 15/03/2018
With the Year 10s just missing out on a quarter final spot last week, it was the Year 8s turn this week who travelled to Sir Joseph Williamson’s Mathematics School for the under 13 Kent Sevens.
To be more in keeping with the spirit of age grade rugby, as intended by the RFU, teams were split into 5 groups of 6 teams for this event with all matches being group games and no quarter finals or semi-finals.
Barton Court had a very good day, winning all 5 of their group games to finish the day unbeaten and topped their group. The boys defended extremely well in all games and showed excellent attacking flair to score a number of tries across the tournament. It was also very pleasing to see the team develop in their understanding of the Sevens game match by match.
Hopefully, the team can continue to perform well in their 15 a side matches this season and can take this form into Year 9 where they will be performing on a County scale once again in the Kent competitions.
