Tuesday 14 November 2017 - The Farnborough Academy Key Stage 4 Rugby team went to the Melish Rugby Club to play in the County Cup which we won last season.
There were some really good performances from the Farnborough team. England Rugby Union representatives spoke of Liam Chambers and Ardena Wendsa playing really well and asked which clubs they played for and recommended they went to the NLD Squad which is a great thing for the 2 students.
Thursday 23 November 2017 - the Key Stage 3 Girls Rugby Team from The Farnborough Academy are going to Arnold Hill Academy for a training session. Both schools are teaming up so they can play matches for the first time and both schools can put out a Girls Rugby team.
We are looking at dates for Key Stage 4 TAG Rugby trials which are a first for everybody and also looking at Leicester Tigers coming in again for another coaching day which was a great success last year.
