Rugby Tour to Biarritz

06 September 2017

 

Over the summer break, 26 boys embarked on a six day rugby tour to Biarritz, France led by Head of Rugby Mr Hutchings and supported by Mr Robinson and Mr Williams.

The week’s tour saw the boys get involved with some training sessions and fixtures, along with trips to the beach, a water park, BBQs, and surf lessons.  The boys also had the opportunity to watch the Bayonne 1st XV team train ahead of their weekend fixture and visit the picturesque coastal town of San Sebastian.

On the pitch, the boys defeated St. Paul's in both of their matches, won one and lost one against a physical Biarritz team, and drew 35 - 35 in a great game against Bayonne to round-off the tour.

The tour was a success that was well supported by a large parental body and staff alike; it was perfect preparation for the rugby season ahead.
