The junior rugby teams in Castle Douglas High School capped off a fantastic year with victory in the Dumfries and Galloway Regional Rugby 10’s Festival, adding to their achievement of winning the Rugby 7’s Festival  earlier in the year.  During the morning play, Castle Douglas won through a tough group to qualify for the Cup competition in the afternoon, beating three strong teams in the process.  In the afternoon the boys demonstrated their quality, winning every game, scoring 20 tries whilst conceding 0.  Top try scorers on the day were Archie Holman 10 and Joseph Strain 6.  Connor McGuire was being voted as best Sportsman.  Pictured are the two captains from the 7’s and 10’s Festivals; Archie Nicolson and Joseph Strain.
