Mid-Sussex Tag Rugby Trophy Returns!

Published Apr 25, 2016

Lindfield certainly is the village for tag rugby in Mid-Sussex as once again both the primary schools excelled at the Mid-Sussex Tag Rugby Final. Over the last four years Lindfield and Blackthorns have both won the tournament twice and with both teams contesting last year's final it was no surprise that it was an all Lindfield Village affair at the conclusion of this year's event. Both teams performed admirably in winning their groups with Lindfield Primary Academy winning four and drawing one, scoring over 40 tries in the process. Both teams knew, however, that the toughest challenge lay ahead. Lindfield got off to a flier and soon established a 2 try lead. From this point on both teams matched each other try for try, with attacking mistakes becoming fewer and further between. When the final whistle blew it was Lindfield who came out on top 10-8 and regained the trophy they had won in 2013 & 2014 from their local rivals. The boys and girls in white are looking forward to the County Final later this term.
