Friday afternoon saw some much needed rain land on the field and as the clouds relinquished and a glorious rainbow arched over the pitch, the whistle blew to start the first fixture of the season.
The initially well received short weeks of the last fortnight had meant that the last training the year 9&10 students had was last term but the ferocity and passion that was on display was awe inspiring. The Egyptian tourists, from the British Intenational School of Cairo have been working hard towards this tour and under the tutelage of possibly the biggest man on the continent, have made good progress.
The final score belies the level of effort that was on display and although the eh half time score looked within reach, dropping energy levels And organisation, meant that the tourists managed to notch up more points.
A final score of 34 - 0 and many aching bodies were testament to the challenge that had been faced and the most encouraging part was that the boys had enjoyed it and each and every one of them had faced a challenge and risen up to tackle it.
