Despite the awful weather conditions that seem to be never ending, the commitment and skills shown by the boys’ rugby team has been enough to brighten even the darkest of days! They have started the academic year positively and put in place good foundations for what should be a successful year for Quest Rugby.
Year 7 Rugby
In addition to league fixtures (1 won; 1 lost), the year 7 boys represented the school at a Surrey Rugby tournament at Dorking RFC (2 won; 3 lost). This was a great opportunity for the boys to get some much-needed experience and time to gel as a team. Despite the losses there are many positives to take away from the day with the boy’s knowledge and understanding of the game vastly improving.
This term has been one full of learning and the boys have really started to understand what makes a rugby team successful. The squad has taken up extra training sessions, attending morning rugby sessions as well as after school. This level of commitment will only see them improving
Player of the term: Tay Palmer
Coach: S Torrance
Year 8 Rugby
The first term has been busy for the Year 8 rugby boys, they have played one league fixture which was a defeat against a very good Rutlish school. Away from league fixtures the Year 8s have attended a Surrey Rugby tournament at Dorking RFC. The boys gave a good account of themselves in the tournament, winning one, drawing one, losing two. In patches the boys played some great rugby and showed that there is without doubt some talented players in the squad. Next term, there will be a big push to get players to training to help progress the team and continue the positive work this term.

Coach: T Bevan
Year 9 Rugby
The Year 9 squad have been busy with fixtures and a tournament in the first term. In the league the boys have played two, drawing one and losing the other. With the league start not being what we would hope for the boys finally kick started their season in the Surrey Rugby Tournament, winning 1, drawing 1 and losing 1. A very mixed bag of results on the day but lots of positives to take and the boys starting to play some great rugby in the final match. The boys have shown great commitment in the first term and if this continues in the second term it should lead to a very successful year of rugby for the squad.
