It has been an extremely successful rugby season for KLB as 3 of the 5 year groups were crowned champions of the Cotswold and Stroud district.
The Year 7 team were the first to achieve this success after winning all their games in the district tournament held at KLB, winning all their games, scoring 100 points and conceding 0! Year 7 then went on to win 15 out of 16 games, scoring 158 tries along the way. The Year 11 team then finished off their season in style by beating Wycliffe 10-7 in an extremely close final held at Stroud Rugby Club, with KLB scoring a try with seconds left on the clock. The hatrick of titles for KLB was completed by the Year 8 team who deservedly beat Marling 14-5 in a well fought final at Dursley Rugby Club.
It is also important to recognise the success of the Year 10 rugby team, who played in the ‘B’ league last season. The team put together an impressive string of results in the ‘A’ league to qualify for the district semi-finals.
Well done to everyone who has represented the school playing rugby this season. Winning 3 district titles in one season is a fantastic achievement. We now look forward to the rugby 7’s tournaments held at QEH in March.
