School Games U9 Tag Rugby Festival

Ten children took part in the School Games U9 Tag Rugby Festival.  This was the first time we had entered U9 tag rugby.  Teams consisted of 8 players and were 7 minutes one way.  We played four games in our group.

This was re-arranged from March, due to the inclement weather.  However, we remembered the rules and played very well as a team.

We won our first game against East Bergholt with Connor and Mitchell both scoring two tries.

Our second game against Chelmondiston was very close but we lost 4.3 with Connor, Amy and Mitchell all scoring.  (Amy was so pleased with herself and kept a smile on her face for the rest of the day!).

Our third game against Hillside we won with tries from Connor, Amy and Liam.

Our final game was again very close with tries from Amy, and two from Connor, losing 4.3.

All the players were very confident with their forward runs and and throwing a catching.  They displayed an excellent attitude, team spirit and respect for everyone.

Connor won the fair play award for the school.

 Thank you to the parents for transporting them to the event and their support throughout the afternoon.

School Games U11 Tag Rugby Festival

We took a squad of 5 boys and 5 girls from year 5 to the festival at St Joseph’s College.  The format was 8 a-side and we rotated the squad.  The afternoon passed quickly as we played one game then rested one game, but twice we played two consecutive games.

We played 7 games, 8 minutes one way, throughout the afternoon.  We won one game and drew one game.  We were strong running forward, but found ourselves tagged.  We found it difficult to tag the opposition.

Our best game was the sixth game when we worked well as a team and managed to tag the opposition whenever they made a forward run.  Our fifth game demonstrated resilience when we came back from two tries down to finish the game two all.

The School Games young leaders awarded the fair play to Oscar!

Thank you to the parents for the lifts and their support!
