Rugby Tour Makes A Grand Return
After a Covid enforced break, the U13 Edinburgh rugby tour returned in the second week of half-term. This saw 53 excited boys venture up to Scotland to test their rugby ability against unknown opposition, but perhaps more importantly, experience their first tour environment.
The boys produced some stunning rugby, mixing cohesive team play with moments of individual brilliance which saw all teams go unbeaten for the duration of the tour. All games were played in good spirits and boys enjoyed sharing a meal with the opposition after the matches and really reinforced what rugby is about.
Off the field the boys sampled some of Scotland’s famous history and culture, visiting the national Museum, taking a ghost walk around town, visiting the castle and maybe the favourite attraction of the whole tour: the dungeons. Maybe the best bit about the tour was seeing the camaraderie grow every day. Whether it was discovering the best bowler or shooting each other in paintball, the smiles and laugher were constant around the group.
Finally, I would like to thank all the boys for their great etiquette and the staff for giving up their half-term to make this tour a great success.
