THRILLING U8 AND U9 TAG RUGBY MATCHES!

U8  U9 Football 30 Jan 2018

Yesterday was an exciting and exhilarating event for our U8s and U9s. They partook in a series of tag rugby matches against Terra Nova, which proved to be a very fun and enjoyable afternoon!

Our U9s, captained by Robbie, took a resounding victory against Terra Nova with a 13-5 win.

This was down to excellent teamwork and communication; Harry was particularly strong with helping to rally his team, and Oscar kept the boys in check throughout the game with regular encouragement.

Terrific tries were made by Angus (4!), Oscar (3), William B (2), Robbie (2), Archie P and Harry (1 each), and William H boosted the team in defence, parrying any attack by the rivals. Well done lads!

Over to the opposite pitch, and Elliot was striving hard to prove his leadership as U8 captain, and served his team very well. The U8s lost in a tightly fought fixture 8-9 to Terra Nova, but it was an extremely close match that, given more time, could have easily swung the other way.

Brilliant tries were scored by Oliver (4!), Henry (2) and William G (2), and Gabriel, Harvey, Archie and Freddy worked very well, developing their passing skills and stealing opponents tags left, right and centre. Better luck next time lads!
