The British School of Barcelona Rugby & Netball Tour to Gloucester

British School Of Barcelona

On Friday 22nd March, 44 students from The British International School of Barcelona took part in the largest Sports Tour the school has undertaken so far. The group would play 3 Rugby fixtures and 2 Netball fixtures and were represented by their u11 and u12s rugby teams, and the Netball was played between U14 and U16 teams.

Day One

As soon as the group landed, they were taken immediately to our first fixtures vs Pitville School, Cheltenham. The welcome was fantastic, and all teams played extremely well, with the u14 Netball team missing out on a win 10-4 and the U16 Netball team winning convincingly 35-1, and the U12 Rugby team lost narrowly by 4 tries to 3.

Day Two

After breakfast, the group headed to Drybrook RFC in the Forest of Dean, the highest ranked village rugby team in the UK and played 2 rugby fixtures. With the support of the Netball girls and staff, the players were exceptional and won both games; with the U11 team winning 55-25 and the U12s team winning from the last kick of the game 21-19. Following the matches the group had presentations in clubhouse and some much needed food and refreshments.

From the game the group headed back to Gloucester for Gallagher Premeiership action between Gloucester vs Wasps which is one of the oldest contests of rugby in the world. The group were excited to see the game after the exploits of the BSB Rugby players and were not let down with Gloucester coming from 0-11 down to win in convincing manner 27-14. After the game, the students had the opportunity to meet the players from both teams with Man of the Match Billy Twelvetrees spending lots of time talking, signing shirts and having pictures taken with our students. Finally, the groups day concluded with some late-night laughs, singing and pizza!

Day Three

Again, the group enjoyed breakfast and then they were transfered to the second Netball fixtures and final rugby fixtures. The final opposition was always going to be the biggest test for the students playing against established opposition of Hucclecote NC and Old Pats RFC at Cheltenham College. The teams acquitted themselves amazingly well, with the u11s Rugby team drawing 30-30, the U12s Rugby team losing narrowly by 2 tries and the Netball teams tasting their first defeats in the u14 and u16s.
