We took a mixed team (5 boys and 5 girls) of rugby players to a four-team tournament at Clapgate Primary School yesterday. We were so proud of their performance and determination.
In the first game, they took some time to get to grips with the offside rule and lost 3 tries to 0. Following that though, their progress as rugby players soared! They drew the last two games 1-1 and 2-2, including coming from 2 tries down in the last few minutes of the final game. Although they did not win any games, they gave their all in the sunshine and went home happy, with one saying: 'This is my new favourite sport!'
Mr Hervo and I were proud of their brilliant sporting attitude and behaviour, and impressed with their rapid progress. They looked like a well-organised rugby team by the end!
