On the 6th of March, the Junior and Senior Girls’ Rugby team set off to The High School to take part in a blitz. The Junior team played a total of six matches, and the senior team played five.

Next up to play against was Mount Temple, where the girls had a great victory. Tries were scored from Alex, Andrea and Fiona, along with great tackling skills from Paris.
The girls then battled on to play local rivals, Temple Carrig. The two teams were well matched, however St Davids came out on top with a narrow win.
The next match on the schedule was versus St. Dominics. This too was also a close match, but they managed to score a last-gasp try in the last play of the game, leading them to yet another victory.
The fifth match of the day was versus St Louis. The girls also won this match by four tries to three tries, with scores from Kaleigh and Paris.
The final match of the day for the Junior girls was again Mount Temple. Despite the girls’ best efforts, they were defeated.
