2016 UVHS Year 8 Rugby League results

Our Year 8 Boys Rugby league team travelled to Millom School for their first group game of the Barrow Schools Year 8 Rugby League Town Cup Competition.  The field was not in the best condition with it being very muddy and wet underfoot.  Having performed well in their first year as a Year 7 team, high hopes were had for this team in Year 8.  Unfortunately, the side missing some players from last year found Millom just to strong losing 18 – 4.  The boys never stopped trying though and simply made too many handling errors giving Millom too much possession during the game.  Our second game against Dowdales was a disappointing losing forfeit with the game clashing with a Barrow AFC Junior Football competition.  Unfortunately we simply could not find enough reserves to fill the positions left, which meant we progressed no further in the year 8 competition this year.
