SHAWLANDS Academy’s under 14s Rugby team has claimed victory in the Glasgow Emerging schools Cup.

The team played a total of 11 games since the start of January and remained undefeated throughout the whole competition.

The semi-final and final were both played at Cartha Rugby Club against two extremely difficult opponents.

The team produced their best performance of the year in the semis defeating a very strong Paisley Grammar team by five tries.

In the final the boys put in a very gutsy display, defeating a St Rochs team by three tries to two.

Head coach Robbie Renwick said: “What makes this victory even more impressive is that a large number of the boys had no experience of playing rugby before they came to Shawlands Academy.”
