Risedale Rugby dominates, securing second place at Year 9 Tens Tournament!

Five local schools clashed on the pitch at Wensleydale RUFC for the annual Year 9 Rugby Tens tournament, and Risedale put on a performance that left everyone cheering! Our boys watched intently as the first matches unfolded, then plunged into four back-to-back battles that tested their character, resilience, and fitness.

Every encounter was a fierce fight, demanding everything from our team. But Risedale rose to the challenge, unleashing explosive runs and scoring dominant tries in every game. While a narrow loss marked their first match, the boys bounced back with two thrilling wins and a hard-fought draw, securing a well-deserved second-place finish.

Teacher of PE, Mr Lawson, commented,

"I'm incredibly proud of every player who took part. They displayed true sportsmanship and represented Risedale with outstanding spirit. Seeing their faces beaming with smiles at the end of the tournament made it all worthwhile. A huge congratulations to the entire team – you were simply magnificent!"
