With the proposed fixture versus Wellow cancelled, the boys really got into the spirit of a mini-tournament amongst themselves. Played in a competitive atmosphere, captains Keagan (Blue), James F (Red), and Rory S (Green) led their teams well, organising defence and attack with authority. The games were all very close affairs and there was excellent passing and moving with the ball - the focus of many of our practices this term. Individuals also had the opportunity to show their speed and footwork, though tries were limited to three per player to encourage more teamwork/passing. Defensively, the Reds were superbly organised and prevented several tries close to their try line. Greens, too, worked the ball well with some excellent offloading of the ball at times. Blues attacked with great speed to devastating effect. I was extremely pleased to see the involvement of all players and the competitive and sporting spirit in which the games were played.
