U9 & U8 Rugby v Edge Grove

On a beautiful sunny spring afternoon ALL of our Year 3 and 4s went over to Edgegrove for an afternoon of Rugby. The U9A & B teams played contact, the rest were playing touch. All the teams enjoyed their afternoon and some excellent rugby was played by all. On the contact sides I think one or two players need a little more tackling practise – you really can’t afford to miss tackles, particularly with the new rules that have come into force this season. With no scrums or line outs it is a much faster game than previously and if you don’t cover the pitch defensively it is likely to cost you tries!
