On Monday 13 November 2017, the Year 10 rugby team ,16 players
strong, played a fixture against Nailsea away winning 34-17.
The team was ready play as they hadn't played a game in four weeks and despite that they have had a different team every single match except for 10 or 11 players who have played every match.
They started strong with their first try in the first 2 minutes scored
by the centre George Walker.
They then went on to score another 2 tries one by Jacob Loveridge and another one by George Walker in which one he got a conversion.
Then just before half time Nailsea scored a try and converted it putting them on the leader board and that was half- time.
At the beginning of the second half Nailsea came back fighting and
scored a try almost straight away. After this happened Kings realised
that they needed to up their game. Not long after that Kings played an
exceptional piece of play which resulted in the winger, Louie Cordery,
scoring another try for Kings. As the game went on Nailsea scored
another try. But Kings came back with aggression and scoring another
try by the hand of George Walker. By this time there was only 10
minutes left on the clock and Kings felt determined to score another
try before the end of the game. 2 minutes had passed and a player from
Nailsea committed a high tackled which resulted in him being sin binned
for 10 minutes. Kings took advantage of this and played incredibly for
another 5 minutes keeping possession. A fairly new rugby player Aiden
Frayne got the ball and ran through 4 players one of which did an
extremely dangerous high tackle which resulted in a penalty and Aiden
getting his first points ever on the board. Sadly the tackle on Aiden
resulted in him having to come off. With one minute left Kings received
the ball off of the kick and tried to score another try on the but
sadly Kings were taken in to touch just by the try line to finish off
The final score was Kings with 6 tries, 2 of which were converted and Nailsea with 3 tries, 1 of which was converted.
