Cwmbran High School rugby team win Dragons sevens tournament

The sevens rugby team in year eight at Cwmbran High School won a tournament yesterday and didn’t lose a match.

They took part in the Year 8 WRU Dragons Schools 7s Competition 2023’ yesterday in Newbridge.

Callum Redman, WRU Rugby Hub Officer at Cwmbran High School, said: “We went undefeated all day and scored a total of 178 points throughout the day. With a total of 13 schools attending the competition, it was a massive achievement for the students, team and school as a whole. I’m very proud of how this group has come on both as a group and as individuals.”

Before the tournament one of the team said to Mr Redman, “Sir, if we win, will you buy us all a McDonald’s?” Following the final whistle and team’s celebrations, a player reminded him about his offer.  And true to his word he took them all for a meal on their way back to Cwmbran.
