Like everything in 2020, rugby has been hit hard by the pandemic and we needed to work creatively to make sure that rugby was celebrated within the school. The Fettes College Rugby Department collaborated with the SRU Return to Rugby framework to do all they could to give the senior boys a taste of what they so dearly miss – competitive rugby.
A three match modified contact series was put together with U6th Torquil M and Charlie P captaining a team each. Both Captains selected vice captains and a L6 2” wildcard” before they could start to draft together their squads. Amazingly after the first two games the accumulative scores were tied up at 25-25 with both teams winning a game each. In the end it was Charlie P’s team who took the win in another tightly contested game – all played within the permitted modified contact guidelines.
Well done to everyone involved, some superb rugby was witnessed. To view more photos from these matches please click here.
