The U13s Rugby team travelled to Bolton to face a very experience and talented side and quickly found themselves three tries down. Despite this they showed determination, aggression and a good team spirit and started to dominate possession in dangerous areas. A well worked try in the backs sent over Alex El-Jouzi in the corner and this was quickly followed up with a sterling effort from the forwards who muscled over Year 7 Ewan Greenhalgh for a try under the posts. Although it was not quite enough to win the game it meant that the boys walked off the pitch with their heads held high and the reputation of BGS rugby intact.
