Champion feeling for Mundesley tag rugby side

MUNDESLEY Junior School's tag rugby team have become Norfolk county champions for the second year running.

Having earlier qualified by winning both their local district and Northern Area competitions, Mundesley joined 23 other school teams at the county finals, hosted this year by Holt Rugby Club.

During the county finals they played a total of eight games, winning five and drawing three. The standard of the rugby was very high and Mundesley faced stiff opposition throughout, particularly in the later stages from Robert Kett Junior (Wymondham) who eventually finished as very close runners-up.

Mundesley now progress to the East of England finals, to be held in London, where they will represent Norfolk, hoping to go one step further than last year's team and reach the national finals.

'Everyone at the school is delighted with our children's latest sporting achievement, and the team is very much looking forward to the East of England Finals in London, which again promises to be a real adventure for a little school from North Norfolk! The children all worked extremely hard, both in training and during the tournament itself, and supported each other tremendously well. They thoroughly deserve their success and we are very proud of them,' said Julian Humphreys the deputy head.
