10 children from Y5/6 entered the Dove Valley Sports Association Tag Rugby tournament at Shobnall School.
8 boys and 4 girls represented the school in a tournament where we were defending champions. The team was made up of 9 Y5 children and only 1 Y6 child.
It was always going to be tough,and the first game showed us why, a stubborn Rangemore team played out a 0-0 draw with our team. We had 5 disallowed tries! (A record I think!)
In the second game we improved and the tries started to come.
Results of 2-0, 4-0 and 4-2 saw the team win the group on having scored more tries than the other teams.
In the semi we thumped Rykneld 4-0, and it could have been more.
In the final we faced All Saints from Alrewas. Previous winners of the tournament, they were a good team. But not good enough!
Our team were magnificent. It was close, but we squeezed out the win with a 2-0 scoreline.
Playing ruby for the first time ever were 3 girls from Y5.
Super team spirit and a never ending determination was shown by all players.
Well done team WS!
