On Tuesday 7th March, our amazing Year 5/ 6 mixed Rugby Team played in a Tournament at the
Littledown Leisure Centre. Our performance was fantastic!
In the morning we won three out of four games, then were placed in one of the most difficult groups
for the afternoon! We knew it was going to be hard, but we did our best.
In our first afternoon match we drew against St. Martins 4-4. It was a hard game, but we did really
well. Jamie Kirkland drove the opposition mad because they couldn't catch him!!! Our next game
was against Corpus Christi. Kharma Martin played brilliantly and nearly scored a try. We could have
won the match, especially as Mateusz Grzybowski, Daniel Paun and Leo Saner-Dickens all
performed extremely well, but sadly we just lost 6-5!
After this hard loss, we played St. James. We were all motivated, with Dan Kelly and Josh Kerney
pushing our team on, but unfortunately they had one strong player who seemed to score all their
points, so consequently we lost 8-4. In our last match against Heathlands, we were all very tired!
Rachel Hilton, as well as others, fought for every ball during the ten minutes, but even Tom
Preston's great try couldn't clinch it for us and we ended up losing 6-8.
All our team fought hard from the first minute and never gave up!!!
