Congratulations to the Year 10 Rugby team from Newton Abbot College who won the Plate final at Forches Cross in the South Devon 7-a-side Rugby tournament. Despite losing their first game and playing against some tough opposition, the boys went on to win their remaining 3 matches and showed steady improvement throughout all of the games. Strong rucking and solid defence allowed them to dominate in most of the matches.
