Year 9 Winners - Abraham Guest School
War of the Roses 2012

Leeds Rugby Foundation hosted the annual War of the Roses competition between girls from Leeds and Wigan schools, on Friday 1st June.
The day got off to a flying start with Year 7s battling hard in a close competition between Corpus Christi and Edmund Arrow Smith, edging in front by just 4 points as the final whistle blew was the Wigan side Edmund Arrow Smith.

With the second game under way the Year 8s were as evenly matched as the Year 7s, with the Leeds side Cockburn losing a lot of players due to injury, with 5 minutes to go Holy Cross pulled away to win, both teams showed great attacking ability in such a high scoring game.

Although we knew the trophy was heading in the direction of the red rose, the third game was played at such a high intensity and the determination from both sides it was an extraordinary match to watch. Defence throughout the whole game was solid and like the first game the Wigan school Abraham Guest snatched the win in the closing minutes of the game, winning 48-42.

With the trophy belonging to the Wigan schools all teams should be very proud of their achievements and their performances on the day, there were 3 great matches and were all thrilling to watch.

Sarah Clough, Leeds Rhinos Women & Girls Development Officer commented "A huge thank you to all the schools that took part to make it such a successful event. The support from the Wigan Warriors community team was fantastic. Finally a thanks to the Leeds Referee Society for providing the officials for the day".
