Despite the result to our neighbours and giving bragging rights to classmates the following day at school the most outstanding fact of the day was that we had the ability to field an Under 10's team with subs this season. Considering 5 of our team have never played rugby before September it was a pleasure to witness their determination to try and play a game against a far more experienced side.
The guys were excellent in trying to remember the basics in their first ever rugby game, that they had been fast-tracked to learn in the space of 6 weeks, big high fives to our experienced players Aidan, Callum, Jack and Tom for continually taking bit hits whilst helping their new team mates wherever and whenever they could, this would unfortunately take it's toll with injuries preventing sufficient numbers to be available to play the final quarter of the game.
Thanks to Toc H for the game and we look forward to the revers fixture.
