Trennick – supporting the Cornish Pirates

This weekend has been a very active one.


After prep in the library on Friday evening it appeared that most of the house used the SBASC.  There were boys everywhere: they were in the fitness suite; using one side of the sports hall to play football; and the other to play basketball.  Needless to say that at roll call there were many hot and sweaty bodies!


On Saturday, Josh and Joe left early to go sailing to make the most of the glorious weather.  After brunch some boys popped into town, but most stayed around the house in anticipation of the final three rugby matches of this year’s Six Nations’ tournament, in which England could still win the competition.


After their evening meal the boys then settled down to watch the last half of the France vs. Ireland game, in which a win for France would mean England would take the tournament.  There was an almighty cheer during the last minute of the game as it appeared that France had scored a try which meant England had indeed won, however after a referee’s review it showed that the scoring pass had gone forward, so France’s try was disallowed.  This brought an almighty groan as Ireland had won the title.


The outing on Sunday was yet more sports action.  A selection of boarders and gap students travelled to see the Cornish Pirates host London Welsh at the Menaey in Penzance.  Almost 1,500 people were in attendance to watch the game, and the weather stayed dry which was a bonus.  The London Welsh side were too good for the local boys, who did not play well.  Fun and enjoyment were had by all, especially two of our German boys Manuel and Moritz who had not been to a rugby match before.  You can see a photo from the match in the gallery here.


All in all, an action packed sporting weekend. Perhaps too much for some who fell asleep on the bus back form Penzance!
