The Bungay High School U15 Rugby team are County Champions! They represented the school in the final at Ipswich Rugby Club against teams from Farlingaye and St Benedicts High Schools.
The Bungay team started strongly in their first fixture against Farlingaye producing some dominant forward play complemented by good handling and swift running in the back line to win comfortably 35 -5.
In the second fixture against St Benedicts, Bungay were faced with a team who had clearly worked on strategies that combated and disrupted the game plan of moving the ball wide. Consequently the Bungay team found themselves under pressure in a tense and frustrating game. In the final few minutes, Bungay needed to score twice in order to win and the effort which followed can only be described as Herculean! As a result, Bungay won 19 - 14 after two late tries. The entire team should be commended on their performance in both fixtures but the following players deserve special mention: Riley Hatcher, Harvey Sayer, Archie Taylor and Cameron Brodie Etheridge.
The next challenge for this team is to repeat this performance in 2018 and become Year 11 County Champions.
