Rugby Team in Area Tournament

Despite playing some excellent rugby at last Friday`s Large Schools`Rugby Tournament at Debenhamt, S.R.H. fell agonisingly close in their quest to win the competition, losing narrowly in the semi-final.
In the group matches, Framlingham won 3 of their 4 matches, with their toughest match against St Botolph`s ending in a draw.
Other results were as follows….. Fram V Eye (Won 5 tries to nil ), Fram V Debenham B (Won 4 tries to 1), Fram V Debenham C (Won 6 tries to 3).
The semi-final clash proved to be a titanic “see-saw” struggle with `Fram` taking the lead no fewer than three times but each time Debenham struck back and their equalising try just before the final whistle resulted in a “golden try” situation (i.e. first to score= wins). `Fram` attacked with purpose but it was Debeham who took the victory with a match winning try.
All players acquitted themselves very well but a special mention for Charlie Smith who was singled out for praise by watching officials, mightily impressed with his mesmerising speed and evasive skills
Team Line-up : Charlie Smith, Ted Goode, George Johnson, Harry Coulthurst, Josh Cantrell, Adam Merry, Jasmine Gravelius, Izzy Brooks, Tilly, Jessie Evans, Elisabeth Garrett
