Year 2  Ford Cup Tag Rugby 

 Four schools entered the competition, with teams from – BSCA, SS Osmund and Andrew, Tonge Moor and Blackshaw.

 With only four teams in the competition the matches were played on a round- robin basis causing great excitement and tension. After the round robin SS Osmund and Andrew were placed first and went on to play Tonge Moor (who came fourth) in the first semi-final. There was a major upset with underdogs Tonge Moor triumphing with a golden try after the scores were locked at 2-2 at the end of normal time.

The second semi-final saw (second placed) BSCA cruise past Blackshaw by a score of 3-1.

 The match for third/fourth place then saw SS Osmund and Andrew defeat Blackshaw by 2-0.

 The final couldn’t have been closer with the underdogs Tonge Moor keeping pace with BSCA throughout. The scores were level at 3-3 after normal time, no further score happened during extra time, so the match went to ‘a golden try’. It was the ‘golden try’ from Junior Mlangu that saw BSCA win at home and retain the trophy. Owen Nguia was outstanding throughout for BSCA with his lightening pace.
