We started a Rugby club at the beginning of the Autumn term to prepare for a tag rugby tournament at Whitworth Park Secondary school in Spennymoor, with the children attending lunchtime and after school rugby clubs, we were well prepared.

At this club, we learned the fundamental rules and coaching of the sport with help from Sedgefield SSP and Mr Baister.

We attended the tag rugby tournament with two teams mainly mixed with year 3 and 4s and a couple of year 5s and 6s. The tournament was attended by 20+ schools surrounding the area who brought all year 5 and 6 teams. Our two teams were 2 years younger than all of the other teams, on average. With that said, we surprised a lot of teams with one of our teams only losing one game in the group stage. We looked very comfortable in all games and showed just how good St. Francis’ is.
