After a long lay off over Christmas since we last played rugby, it was brilliant to get so many boys out on the pitch enjoying the challenge of playing ESMS on Friday; we took three equal teams of seven and everyone got to play three games on what was a mild and balmy afternoon. We talked beforehand about what we were focusing on: the hand catch, the tackle, talking to each other and what to do with the ball when we were tackled, and there was some impressive rugby played by all three teams with lots of tries scored and some super running and support play. Seeing the Form 4 boys rise to the occasion and step up was fabulous to see, with most of them not having been able to play much contact last term, they threw themselves in to the action and as this group of boys go through the school, they are going to an impressive team indeed!
We won lots of games and drew and lost the odd one, but what was more important was to see the commitment and teamwork on show and to see everyone come off the pitch at the end with a smile on their face! Thank you to ESMS for hosting us so well and we look forward to the return fixture in a few weeks’ time.
