Rugby News 2015
On Thursday 23 July the Fourways High School First XV and U/15 A rugby team played against the Royal Belfast Academy, a touring school rugby team from Ireland. The visitors managed to come out victors in both games. The First XV lost 36-27 and the u/15 A team lost 22-0.

In the u/15A team game the visitors took advantage of the fact that we had not played any competitive rugby since the middle of June and raced to a 22-0 lead by half time. However in the second half the Fourways boys came back strongly and dominated the possession and territory. The Fourways forwards began to get the upper hand and were unlucky not to score from a rolling maul which started 20m from the opponents try line. Even though the Fourways team was unable to win they showed a lot of courage to prevent their opponents from scoring in the second half.

The First XV got off to a blistering start and scored in the first minute with a superb drive from the line out, and then scored shortly afterwards to race to a 12-0 lead. The visitors then scored from a superb scrum move in the Fourways 22 to set up a closely contested game. The lead changed hands on several occasions and with a few minutes to go the game hung in the balance. The visitors finally come out victors 36-27 to end an extremely entertaining game of rugby.
