BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Bad sportsmanship”
AUTHOR:
"> I watched my 11 year old grandson play rugby for Clifton Hall School against an Edinburgh Academy team recently. The Academy team was easily the stronger team a won the game with ease. The game was spoiled by the Academy boys arguing with the referee and general bad sportsmanship. I told their games master that I was an Academically (1958-62) and that I was appalled at his team’s behaviour and was told “they are always like this”. I can only hope that this is a one off.
