Success at the Rugby Tournament…   

3 April, 2014

TagRugbyMarch2014Wow, well done Kings Furlong!  On Tuesday 1st April our Year 4 rugby team went to Basingstoke Rugby Club to compete in a schools tournament.  The children showed fantastic teamwork and played their socks off.  They won 3 of their matches and drew 1.  Following such great results the team was entered into the final.  Unfortunately they didn’t win this last game but 3 – 2 was a great result.  The children were a real asset to our school and should be complimented on both their team spirit and sportsmanship.
