Year 11 Rugby

Year 11 rugby players play their final game for the school,

on Tuesday 26th November, playing last year’s joint County Champions, Redruth School in an exhilarating quarter final at Mullion School. It capped what has been a tremendous season for the players, who have grown both individually and collectively as the season developed. Many are regularly representing clubs now with distinction. In windy conditions, both sides played ambitious rugby, with Mullion superior in the tight areas, and Redruth looking for space in wider channels. Mullion forwards didn’t give an inch and there was plenty of powerful carries from Captain Rowan, Rudy and Tom (after recovering from injury). Angus and Sol proved their technical and physical prowess in the scrummage once again, and Harry stole at least one ball against the head and was sharp in the loose. Improved accuracy at line out also improved the platform given to the backs and they did not disappoint. Ben had a strong game and Joe’s tactical kicking display was outstanding. When the ball made in wider, Ethan, Eryk and Kailan were a consistent threat. When Redruth kicked, the back three, including and later Oli were not afraid to run the ball back convincingly. Kieran was superb at full back, with his agile running lines and strong leg drive a real feature of the game. Defensively, the quality of the tackling was first class. Despite an outstanding back line from Redruth, the defensive line held strong for the majority of the game. Nobody took a backwards step and Ben and John contributed with energy at the break down. In the second half, despite a tight lead, the odds were against Mullion, due to the strong wind into their faces. However, the game was always tight. Great line speed and dynamism saw Ethan force some turn overs and Joe was frequently about to find laser point touch kicks. In the end though, it was Redruth, following some high quality rugby from their outstanding number 10 who were able to take the decisive try and conversation to see them over the line. Regardless of score line, this was one of the best performances we have seen from any Mullion team, and coach and Parents watching were clearly very proud. 15- 14. Thank you boys and good luck for the future. Mr Fergus.
