Both Wilsons' teams (Blue & Gold) picked up wins in the league this week. The Blue team won by 10 points against "Dumb Waiters" with Mark and Isobel playing particularly well. The Gold team pulled off a shock result against "Inglorious Bs" who were five places ahead of Gold in the league table going into this game. Some great defense work by Finn & Daniel allowed Ciaran and Eoghan the opportunity to do damage with the ball in hand. Well done to everyone and we look forward to the next games.
Another great evening of Tag at Mullingar RFC this week. The WHS Blue team lost by a point to Mr Williamson's "Rucking Corona" team which included past pupils Sean Weafer, Ben Wiseman and Rudolf Von Bunau as well as past teacher Ayesha Roche. Plenty of familiar faces in the picture above! Well done to everyone who turned out. Everyone os welcome to join in. Contact Mr Draper.
Well done to our Tag Rugby teams who were in action this week in Mullingar RFC. With lots of interest, WHS easily fielded 2 teams with a combination of 24 pupils, past pupils, staff and coaches togging out for Wilson's Blue and Wilson's Gold teams.
Wilson's Blue took on Ms Butler's "Benny's Bunch in the first game and won by the narrowest of margins 8-7.Mr Dunne scored the winning try in the last play of the game. Mark M was Player of the Match.
Wilson's Gold were beaten in a high scoring game by Jelly Tags which was a very entertaining game. Jude gets the nod for Player of the Match just ahead of Ms O'Neill, while Ciaran helped himself to six tries.
Lots of fun and hard work was put in by everyone. Well done and we're looking forward to next week already!
