U11 Rugby 7s at Bedford Modern

Last week started with the U11 7s team playing in a festival at Bedford Modern. The boys started with a win over Bedford Modern B team, which really got them fired up. The final score was 25-0. The second game saw the boys step up a level with a win over Harrold School from Bedford. Again, resulting in more points on the board with a convincing 40-5 win.
This left the boys in the final, playing against Bedford Modern A team. We knew this would be a tough match as the Bedford side is one of the best we’ve played this year. The final score went Bedford’s way, with a 25-10 win. I was delighted with the way the boys kept working as hard as possible, under so much pressure. The boys did actually score the best two tries in the final, but a couple of mistakes just gave Bedford the edge.
Warwick 7s this week will be another test for the boys but, hopefully, this festival has given them plenty of experience.
