The Women's Rugby World Cup was a high-profile visitor to CCS on Thursday, 11th May. The school's rugby pitch was a hive of activity, with local primary school pupils enjoying a blitz of catch-and-run. Our own girls spent at least half an hour posing with the World Cup before taking part in a tag-rugby match with the boys. The main event of the day was CCS Girls XV v St. Columba's Girls XV (Stranorlar). It has to be said that many of the spectators in attendance weren't quite ready for the spectacle. There's no doubt that some of the tackling was on a par with anything seen in boys rugby. The game's intensity was notable and every girl on the pitch gave it the whole nine yards...At one point there MAY have been a short recess to let everyone calm down a bit! Fair play to Mr. Spencer for managing to keep a lid on proceedings, while imparting his knowledge of the game in the process. In the end, the CCS ladies ran out 20-10 winners. But as can be seen from the photos, everyone left the battleground with their heads held high. Well done to both teams on a superb exhibition of "the gentleman's game".
