Staffordshire Schools Schools Partnership - School Games Year 3/4 Tag Rugby

This afternoon 12 boys and girls from Years 3 and 4 travelled to Moorside High School to take part in the annual School Sports Partnership Tag Rugby tournament. Sadly, due to late withdrawals St. John's were only joined by St. Luke's from Endon. 


So that all players could gain a significant amount of playing time, it was agreed that the teams would upgrade  the usual 7 minute game to a game of two 10 minute halves.


St. John's started off well and following some nifty footwork and quick passing opened the scoring before St. Luke's quickly replied to even up the score. Both team's enjoyed extended and intense periods of possession during which players from both teams showed speed, skill, agility, precision, determination and teamwork in abundance as both team's traded tries. St. John's finishing the first half with a narrow 1 try advantage.


The second half began in the same fashion as the first had ended, with both teams playing some excellent Tag Rugby. St. John's scored some fantastic team tries where the ball was passed through hands quickly and players ran some excellent lines. Sadly, St. John's were to finish the game on the losing side as St. Luke's were able to finish off their chances in a very clinical manner. However, all the boys and girls should be very proud of their performance today and have really prepared themselves well, for what should be an excellent CADSSA Tag Rugby Tournament at Picknalls First School on Wednesday 10th May, where WE GO AGAIN!


Thank you to all the Mums, Dads, Grandmas and Granddads who came along to watch and support the team.
