For those people who are slightly sceptical about the adjusted rules of under-9 rugby, this game was a real advert for the mini game.  It was a game of tenacity - demonstrated by the hard tackling of the Moorlands boys - against some lovely flowing rugby - from the Terrington boys.

 

Terrington really showed a good understanding of continuity and every time Moorlands made a tackle someone was there to keep the game moving.  Moorlands had a couple of really good players who were backed up by boys around them willing to fight for the team.

 

The final score was nine all. Rollo scored four, Theo two, Archie one and David one.  Terrington improved very much as the game progressed and it was great to see them realise that rugby isn't just about running and passing, but also being brave and tackling low.  Hopefully we will take this into our next game.
