TAG Rugby Tournament at Newport Rugby Club
St Matthews TAG Rugby team took part in the Telford and Wrekin Northern district TAG Rugby qualifiers. The team consisted of the children who took part in the TAG club before Half term. Here is the team.
St Matthews faced tough opposition throughout the tournament. St Matthews played Lilleshall, Wrockwardine Wood, Moorfield and Newport. Overall, we finished 4th in our group of 5 with 3 points, an improvement on last year. We lost 3 games, two of which we lost by 1 try with both those tries coming in the last minute of the match, but won convincingly against Moorfield. The team were unlucky and could have finished in the top two with some great tries scored by Alfred, Denzil, Shaneka, Kezia and Maddy. There was some outstanding defence led by the captian Megan and imitated by Tia-May and Safina made lots of breaks for her team mates to profit from to score tries. In conclusion, the team played with a real togetherness, showing true sporting etiquette, even stopping when a player from the opposite team was injured and refused to score from the injury whilst showing true St Matthews’ grit and spirit.
Here are the results:
Lilleshall 4 – 2 StMatthews
Wrockwardine Wood 4 – 3 St Matthews
St Matthews 4 – 1 Moorfield
St Matthews 2 – 3 Newport Juniors
But we also had a lots of fun, sharing laughs and jokes and always smiling throughout the afternoon.
Well done and we looking forward to taking you all to the next tournaments.
Remember TAG Rugby Club is Thursday evening 3.15-4.15pm, come and join in the fun.
