Gruntly- Grantown and Huntly win Quarter finals

Yesterday, Gruntly Girls‘ U’15 Rugby team comprising 8 girls from GGS and 8 girls from The Gordon Schools, Huntly took on Liberton/ Royal High School, Edinburgh in the Quarter final of the Scottish Schools Rugby Cup in Edinburgh. In blustery conditions the girls had a hard game on their hands but were grateful that their end of the pitch was on a downward slope in the first half!

With some tremendous team work, under an inspiring Captain Caitlin the No.9 [S3] the girls forged ahead from the “get go” and with notable tries from GGS girls; Molly [S3] Susanna [S3] and Alanah [S2] they were not catchable. Outstanding tackling from Susanna at Full back [S3] and Forwards Danielle[S3] and Rosie [S4] also meant that the Gruntly bunch were hard to get past! In addition, newbie Rachel [S1] got “stuck in” along with Julia [S2] at Prop.


Final Result

Gruntly– 59   Liberton/Royal High School – 45 Semi finalists! WHOOP!
