Our Year 9 rugby team has won the Merseyside Emerging Schools tournament today, thanks to a fantastic defensive performance and team effort.

The tournament, at Liverpool St Helens RUFC, saw Cardinal Heenan beat schools from Liverpool, Southport, Wirral and St Helens - including a first-ever victory over Cowley Technical College, a St Helens school renowned for its long rugby union tradition.

  • 20-0 v Childwall
  • 15-0 v Christ the King
  • 10-0 v Cowley
  • 10-5 v Rainford High
  • 5-0 v Hilbre High

Mr Townson congratulated the boys on a great team effort. He said: "We were unbeaten in five matches and only conceded one try in the whole tournament. It was a truly fantastic performance from the whole team."

The team for the tournament was: Conor Glorman (captain), Joe Brindle (vice-captain), Deacon Costello, Lucas Ferns, Alex Ioannou, Chris Jackson, Daniel Jones, Gabriel Jones, Joshua Maloney, David Mbugua, Charlie Murphy, Matthew Rabbette, Joe Williamson.

Word of the Week

Machiavellian (adjective)

Subject which uses this term: English Literature; Drama; History; Politics

Meaning: cunning, scheming, and unscrupulous.

For example: ‘Mrs Lyons is Machiavellian. She manipulates Mrs Johnstone into giving up her baby. She uses Mrs Johnstone’s superstitious nature to ensure she gets what she wants.’

MRS. LYONS: You do know what they say about twins, secretly parted, don’t you?


MRS. LYONS: They say…they say that if either twin learns that he once was a pair, that they shall both immediately die. It means, Mrs. Johnstone, that these brothers shall grow up, unaware of the other’s existence. They shall be raised apart and never, ever told what was once the truth. You won’t tell anyone about this, Mrs. Johnstone, because if you do, you will kill them."
