YEAR 5&6 TAG RUGBY TOURNAMENT - 1
Such a beautiful day and an amazing performance. This year the tournament had been split in two. We had been placed in the stronger half and certainly showed we were worthy.
We won our group in the morning undefeated, and progressed to the Super 8s in the afternoon. We then went on to win our Super 8 Group and into the Semi Finals against Chalkwell. We played Chalkwell in our first game that day and won by the skin of our teeth. The semi final took a very similar route, but we managed to come back from behind and win with a Golden try!
So on to the final we marched, against, as always, West Leigh! This was always going to be a very hard match, but our team went out and worked hard, never giving up. Even though we went down by a couple of trys, we pulled it back to lose by 1, with the ball in our possession. Had there been a few more seconds on the clock, we may have forced a draw and extra time!
I must admit the team really came together this year, and feel i speak for Mr Cotton too, when I say how very impressed we are with how the team has grown over the years, the tournaments and friendlies. An especially big well done to the less experienced players stepping in at the last minute. Even the referees commented on how well the team were playing.
Due to the amount of photos i have had to spread them over 3 albums, I hope you enjoy them as much as we all enjoyed the day.
........on to the Essex Finals we go..........
