We travelled to Stamford for the U10 festival. There was the added attraction of the premiership rugby trophy on display along with a Leicester Tigers stand. We had our photo taken with the trophy.
Our first game was against Fairfield School. We played a game of touch rugby which we won 1-0. We then played a close game against Laxton School which ended 2-2. Our toughest game was against Ratcliffe College where we were introduced to rucking. Despite going 4-0 down we suddenly found our spark and scored three tries in the last few minutes and lost narrowly 4-3. Our final match was against Copthill School and this finished 2-2. A very enjoyable afternoon's rugby.
