On Tuesday evening Newport High School played Duffryn School. Straight from Andrew Flanelly’s kick off the opposition dropped the ball and Dan Gibbons sprinted to pick up the ball making a lot of ground. However during the tackle the ball was turned over and they passed it down the line and got it to their winger. He ran from distance beating a few defenders to score the first try of the match for Duffryn. Newport High School however came back fighting. Dan Gibbons again had another powerful run before being tackled close to the line. Joe Bates was close at hand and picked up the ball to dive over from close range. Andrew Flanelly added the conversion. For the remainder of the game Newport High played more of the rugby and it was only down to breakaway tries that Duffryn managed to finally win 38-19.
