Yrs 3 + 4 Tag Rugby at Esher RC - 12.12.16


The first exercise was running through a ladder with side steps.  We changed it around and side stepped backwards.  Then we played a game a bit like virus.You had to stand outside and get to the little box in the middle.  If you got caught then you would become a cather.  We were all really good at that game.  We played this twice and then played stuck in the mud.

Our First Match

The Blue team (our A team) played Burhill first and won 5-2.  Burhill had a boy who was really good and hard to run around.  The Red team (our B team) won 5-2 against Grovelands.

Our Second Match

The Blue team played Grovelands and won 6-3.  Tom, Billy and Toby scored tries but in the second half Grovelands came back.  We made some changes in the second  half and played more as a team.  The Red team also won.


After we had won our two matches we played each other in the final!  The Blue team won 10-8.

Award Celebration

After we had won the tournament we joined all the other teams.  First we had team photos.  Then they said that one person from each of the teams would win a ball.  From the Blue team Daniel got a ball, in the B team Eva got the ball.
