Young rugby players in Kent got the chance to learn firsthand from Bethany’s 1st XV players how to survive for an entire season unbeaten when the school hosted a tournament for Under 10s.Three clubs from across the county - Tunbridge Wells RFC, Sevenoaks RFC and the Tonbridge Juddians - took part in the three way end-of-season tournament  cheered on by supporters supplied by Friends of Bethany (FOBS) with traditional rugby fare of bacon sandwiches and cakes.Bethany parent and FOBS member, Kim Bardoe, said: “We all enjoyed today. It was a lovely, friendly atmosphere and I’m sure this came across to everyone.”Headmaster, Francie Healy, highlighted the importance of rugby within sport at Bethany, exemplified by the 1st XV’s unbeaten season and urged the younger players to continue their passion for rugby.  Tonbridge Juddians won Pool A and Tunbridge Wells RFC were the champions of Pool B.
