Year 3 and 4 Tag Rugby Competition

On Tuesday 17th June, eight year 3 and 4 children took part in a tag rugby league competition organised by The University of Gloucestershire All Golds rugby league team.  The children first had 6 training sessions leading up to the competition. For some of our children this was the only rugby training they have ever had!

The children were placed in a group with five other schools with each game lasting 8 minutes long. Although we lost four games and drew one, the children had a fun time and learnt a great deal of how to play tag rugby league with the adults being really proud of the children. Our top try scorer was Cameron Parry with four, Lee Davies-Smith with two tries and Dillano Pennant with one try.

A big thank you must go to our coaches Ed and Sam from University of Gloucesteshire All Golds Rugby League team for all their hard work.
