Last Thursday we took two tag rugby teams to The John Fisher school to play some tag rugby. We took a team of players who are new to the game, these children were given the opportunity to practice some of the skills we have learnt in our club and apply them into game situations. They had a great day, learnt loads and drew all of their matches bar one.
Our festival team also did fantastically well. Considering this was their first time playing together this season they are definitely a team to watch at Avenue this year! They started the heats by winning their first three games and drawing their fourth which meant they came first in their category. Despite some absolutely incredible rugby they unfortunately lost in the semi-final but went on to win their next match meaning they came 3rd out of 10 schools.
All of the children who came had a great attitude throughout the whole day and showed fantastic sportsmanship. Well done to everyone who came!
