Year 3 Tag Rugby Tournament
All the year 3 boys traveled to Linford Christie to take part in a round robin tournament between their peers. The boys were split up into 4 teams, each team had a team name, Sabres, Knights, Daredevils and Warriors. The idea of the tournament was to provide the boys with experience in tag rugby, as well as learning all the rules, along with having fun and enjoying themselves with their friends. All teams showed some good play, everyone played an active part in the matches and enjoyment was high. This was a very beneficial experience for all the year 3 boys. Roll on the first fixtures!
1st – Warriors
2nd – Knights
3rd – Sabres
4th – Daredevils
