Rugby squad get rewards on tour
Campion School have enjoyed a good first week on their rugby tour of South Africa.
Pupils from the Hornchurch school flew out last week, arriving in Cape Town to be greeted by rain.
And after a tiring journey, their two teams fell to defeats in their opening fixture against SACS.
The second XV went down by a 22-0 margin, while the first XV were beaten 53-8.
The touring party enjoyed a trip to Table Mountain, before training in Hermanus and meeting their billets.
And the second round of fixtures in midweek produced better results, with the seconds running out 10-0 winners as the firsts were edged to an 18-17 loss.
Campion played their third fixtures today (Friday) and claimed convincing wins in both.
The second team thumped their rivals by a resounding 82-0 margin, with the firsts celebrating a 54-11 victory.
