Year 5 Tag Rugby Tournement


Tag Rugby Fun!


The majority of the Year 5's set out today to take part in a touch rugby tournament at Andover Rugby and Football club, with high hopes.  Those hopes were not dashed - despite some drizzly weather and a somewhat short experience of touch rugby - the children started off and continued playing with great confidence and positivity.


Throughout the five games played, the team held a great defensive line, made some excellent tags and supported a number of fantastic runs.  All in all we scored 10 tries (scorers: S. Biddlecombe, D. Harnett, J. Somerton, J. Smith, J. Biggs and M. Webb - with nearly all players close to scoring!).


Unfortunately, after some very close games, we went out after the quarter finals of the Bowl Cup.  However, children were unperturbed by any losses, very sporting and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of every game (especially the one that we won).
