15/02/17 - Kingspan Stadium Visit
On Friday 10th February, Newtownhamilton High School pupils got well into the rugby spirit by “Standing Up For The Ulstermen!”.
Over 90 pupils travelled to Kingspan Stadium to watch Ulster play against Edinburgh and whilst the weather was indeed chilly, that didn’t seem to change the pupil’s enthusiasm!
Arriving just on time and having just got a quick bite to eat, the game commenced and very quickly Ulster showed just how strong a side they can be when they need to.
In the first half, Ulster managed to score several tries right in front of the excitable Newtownhamilton crowd. Tries from the likes of Charles Piatau put Ulster in a very favourable position going into the second half.
Whilst Edinburgh definitely upped their game in the 2nd half – pushing Ulster’s defence to its limit, thankfully, the boys in white managed to hold on and claim a 24-18 victory in the PRO-12 League.
A very enjoyable evening indeed.
Many thanks to all the staff who attended as well!
