As the winners of last year’s tournament, Anthony Roper were keen to defend their title of this very well organised and enjoyable event.
ARPS entered two strong teams again this year, the B team drawn in a pool along with Leigh, Otford and Sevenoaks Primary.
ARPS B’s got off to a great start running in 8 tries against Otford who replied with 2 of their own. The second game was against a very strong Leigh side who put ARPS under pressure from the start. Leigh edging out 8-6 winners. In order to make it to the next round, it was a must win game against Sevenoaks Primary. A very closely contested game saw ARPS edging a 6-5 win.
Through to the quarter finals and a very well drilled Lady Boswell side where both teams played some fantastic rugby. The match ending in a 6-6 draw. ARPS had scored 3 more tries in the pool matches and therefore through to the Semi Finals.
The A team were drawn in a pool alongside Churchill, Leigh and Amherst.
ARPS A’s got off to a fantastic start against Churchill, running in 12 unanswered tries. Leigh posed a stronger challenge, holding ARPS to a draw in the first half but ARPS then got the bit between their teeth and ran out 9-3 winners. It was a similar contest against Amherst, a close first half but ARPS controlling the second to win 8-5. Through to the quarter finals and a match against Borough Green. A very close game edging one way then the other with both teams playing some great rugby. The game ending in an 8-8 tie, ARPS had scored 13 more tries than Borough Green in the pool stage and therefore through to the Semi Finals.
A very interesting Semi-Final with both ARPS teams facing each other. A very close first half with the A team taking a one try advantage into half time. The A’s forced a few errors from the B’s in the second half and took full advantage and wrapped the game up with a 7-4 win.
ARPS A’s through to the final against Leigh. Again a very closely contested first half ending in a 4-4 tie, ARPS again forcing errors from the opposition, again taking full advantage with ball in hand and running out 9-6 winners. Title retained!
ARPS would like to take this opportunity to Thank Sevenoaks RFC for once again hosting a fantastic tag festival! Report from Danny Jones
