Year 5/6 Preston Tag Rugby League|
UKS2 Rugby League Team Unbeaten!
After weeks of no games through cancellations and drop-outs, UKS2 tag rugby team finally got to step foot on the field. The games took place at Corpush Christi and our final two fixtures of Division 3 were against St. Ignatius and Roebuck respectively.
We started well against St. Ignatius and our training in PE lessons had definitely paid off. The children defended well and was able to restirct the opposition to only one try. We then attacked brilliantly, with Arthur and Oliver combining well to run through and score our own try. The game finished all-square at 1-1.
With our first game nerves a thing of the past, our defensive line was solid and we turned the ball around after five successful tags. We then attacked, and attacked with speed, with Oliver P going on an amazing run, dodging past all 8 of the opposition to score possibly the try of the night! We continued to turn the ball over as our defense stood strong, with Jemimah making an all-important 5th tag as Roebuck approached our try-line. Another couple of tries from Charlie C and Oliver P saw us come out 3-0 winners. The girls and boys showed tremendous spirit and perserverence on such a cold November night. Hopefully we have done enough to be promoted to Division 2 for the next season, finishing in second place on goal difference.
