The boys had a great day and impressed the staff with their knowledge of living in Tudor Times. On arrival the boys were dressed in Tudor peasant outfits and for a select group, they wore Tudor costumes fit for a banquet. This included two female roles which caused much hilarity.
Last week 5 boys from West Avenue were invited to meet Liz Pichon the author of the hugely successful Tom Gates books as she celebrated the official launch of her latest book in the Malmaison Hotel on the Quayside.
The 1st XV capped an excellent season with a convincing win in the County Cup final. In front of a large crowd at Druid Park, the NSB boys played some superb Rugby to defeat King Edward's Morpeth 59-3.
With forwards and backs playing with huge intensity NSB scored some outstanding tries at regular intervals but at no time dampened the enthusiasm of a spirited KEVI team. Matt C was first to score after taking a Joe N pass before breaking three tackles to score. The same pair teamed up shortly afterwards as Joe d around Matt dive over. Tenacious flanker Matthew A capitalised on a loose KEVI breakdown to turn the ball over and score. Shortly afterwards a superb move was executed by the backs, William Mc providing the scoring pass for Tom Pa. Ever dangerous full back Jack A got in on the act next, using his pace and footwork to outwit the defence and dive over in the corner. The final try of the half was a superb team try from the kick off which ended up with centre Joe C sprinting 50m to score.
