Year 3 and 4 Tag-rugby tournament at Syston

Great news, we made it through to the next round which is some achievement especially as four of the group have never played the game before. A huge thank you to the three girls from year 3, Annalise, Mimi and Pippa,  who rose to the challenge of joining us to complete the mixed teams. We couldn’t have done it without you!!

Despite the very wet weather which looked as though it would result in the cancellation of the event, it soon brightened up enough to get the tournament underway. The ground was soft, which the boy’s especially enjoyed testing out with a few rolls (not the only ones of the afternoon)… you’ve not played rugby till you’ve got muddy!The competition had their chances to score but they did not reckon on our amazing taggers who held many of their possible scores at bay!

Teamwork and support prevailed alongside enthusiasm nourished, in many cases, by the sausage rolls provided… thanks Mr Burrows-Garth. Although we finish in the top three, we are through to the next round and have the satisfaction of having the second highest score for tries! Well done team Mercenfeld and a huge thank you to the parents who helped with transport… we literally couldn’t have got there without you.
