The high school competition season, which is supported by staff from Leeds Rhinos Foundation, is in full swing now. Two of the boys’ plate competitions have been decided: Garforth were winners at Year 8 and John Smeaton at Year 10. The remaining plate competitions will be contested this half-term.

The girls played out their Champion Schools qualifiers before Christmas and this term will focus on the indoor touch rugby tournaments for Years 7 and 8.

After receiving the John Ahm Award for sportsmanship and fair play last season, Cockburn are flying the flag for south Leeds in this season’s competitions. As well as reaching the boys’ finals at Years 7 and 8, their girls’ teams have qualified for the next stage of the Champion Schools Competition at Years 10 and 11.
