End of Season Round up by James Honeyben, Head of Rugby, Strategic Lead for Sport

I am incredibly proud of what we have been able to achieve here at RGS and hugely excited by what progress can be made in the future.

Dear All,

It has been a hugely satisfying rugby season at RGS, seeing full block fixtures return and the U15’s & Senior Squads representing the school in the NatWest Cup, St. Joseph’s Festival and Sedbergh 10’s. To see pupils, parents and staff working together again and RGS Rugby operating at full capacity has brought enormous joy to me personally, and I hope the feeling is replicated by all those involved.

We will always strive to make the small improvements that can make a big difference on and off the field. Our overall objective is to create an environment where pupils can maximise their potential as individuals, as well as collectively, and to engage parents in that process to allow them to be part of their son’s rugby journey.

To echo my comments at the recent FRORGS Awards, I would like to say thank you to a few groups.

Firstly, thank you to the players for their efforts this season, for representing RGS with pride and showing a fantastic attitude throughout. Win, lose or draw, they have been great ambassadors of the school they can be very proud of their efforts.

Thank you to all the staff who have given up their Saturdays, travelled up and down the country to give the players the opportunity to challenge themselves against some of the very best schools.

And finally, a huge thank you to parents and the FRORGS Reps for your time, energy and support over the season. Whether it’s cheering on the various sides on at the weekend, supporting the different fundraising events or helping serve teas and coffees on a Saturday, RGS Rugby can only be competitive with everyone’s hard work.

I am incredibly proud of what we have been able to achieve here at RGS and hugely excited by what progress can be made in the future.

I hope everyone has a fantastic Summer Term, enjoying all the other brilliant sports RGS has to offer, and I look forward to seeing you on the touchline in September.
