S6 Pupils Play Rugby Sevens at Ibrox Stadium during the Commonwealth Games

Thomas and Scott in S6 play Rugby Sevens for Glasgow Hutcheson Aloysians along with a number of ex-Williamwood pupils. Their team successfully made it to the final which was played at Scotstoun, in front of 10,000 spectators, at the end of June against Dundee High School. After a competitive match, the GHA lost the final 12-5 although the boys played incredibly well. As a reward for reaching the final stages of the competition, the GHA team also played an exhibition match against Dundee High School at Ibrox Stadium as a part of the Commonwealth Games Rugby Sevens on Sunday 27 July. The result for this 10 minute match was 7-7 in front of a packed stadium of 45,000 spectators, although the GHA won as they scored the first try. Both Thomas and Scott felt that this was an amazing opportunity and over-whelming experience. Congratulations to both current Williamwood pupils as well as ex-pupils in this amazing achievement.
