Tag Rugby Competition

Highgate is extremely proud of its Tag Rugby teams, following the National Competition held yesterday in Limassol. Our two teams - Under 9s and Under 12s - played schools from many other schools.


Although we have only been playing rugby for a few months, our teams played magnificently and showed great determination and team spirit. Congratulations also to Ms. Emma, our chief coach and team motivator! Well done everyone!
