Champion Schools Rugby
Brooksbank’s Year 11 Boys’ Rugby Team have reached the Champion Schools Rugby League Semi Final. The side will meet either Hawley Hall v Lightcliffe at JMO Sports Park, Skelmersdale on 25th March.
The announcement followed opponents Howard of Effingham’s decision to concede the fixture, as four key players were unable to play due to injuries in the Quarter Final. Hard luck and commiserations to Howard.
In the County Cup, our Year 11s were on excellent form when they produced a thrilling 58-4 win against local side, Lightcliffe in the Yorkshire Cup Semi Final.
