An Unforgettable South Africa Rugby Tour

During the summer, The High School's Form 4 and 5 rugby panel set off on a two week tour of South Africa. After arriving at Cape Town via Dubai, we drove to a small town called Franschoek. While there our 2nds played the local secondary school but lost against a very quick side.  Our next opponent was Somerset College.  Both of our teams put on impressive displays and won comfortably. We traveled to Cape Town the following day and went sight seeing, visiting places like Table Mountain and Robben Island.

 We played a game against Langa Township, a team High School played the last time they were in South Africa.  We won both matches again and it was a good day out, we donated
rugby Jerseys to the Township too.

We went on a game drive and spotted loads of interesting animals.  Our final destination was Durban
where we finally got the weather we were hoping for.  Our last matter of business was to play Durban High School. They provided the biggest challenge of the tour, and we managed to front up to their big men and win a very tight match.  Our seconds were unlucky to miss out on a deserved win by conceding with minutes to go.  Then we went off to the airport, with a brief stop in a waterpark, and before we knew it, we were heading back home to Ireland.  It was an amazing experience and we would like to thank our parents and teachers for making it all possible.
