Tag Rugby 2019

Tag Rugby


On a miserable Wednesday afternoon in October we took a team of girls and boys to the Tag Rugby at AGS.  The children were far from miserable and all really keen for the afternoon to begin.  Mrs Hytch and Mrs Bradbury weren’t quite as keen as they had assumed the tournament was on the astro-turf and didn’t have the right footwear.  Lesson learnt for next time!


Anyway, on to the rugby.  The children were straight in from the first whistle.  Luisa scored her first try before the other team had realised the game had started! Closely followed by Josh, Jake and Eva.  The whole team gave a stunning performance throughout the tournament.  We were very unlucky with the Middleton game, which we thought we had won!  After a controversial few minutes between the referees, time keepers and Mr Johns, it was decided we must play the game again.  The team kept their heads and it was a really good game, but Middleton just scraped through. 


Team spirits were high all afternoon and Polly was great at telling everyone what they should be doing during the games.  Overall a very positive afternoon.
