U8 Rugby

On Tuesday 6th November Terrington U8’s rugby team travelled to Gateways School to compete in a festival of rugby. We arrived in plenty of time for a warm up but unfortunately so did the rain. Our first game was against Moorlands, this was to be our biggest test. Unfortunately, we were mentally still on the mini bus. At this stage I started to think that perhaps we had the traits of a French rugby team who are well known to be poor travellers. We were to play seven matches throughout the afternoon and after our dodgy start we just got better and better. We went on to win our next five matches and finishing the afternoon with a draw but by this stage a cold chill had accompanied the rain. There were many highlights throughout the afternoon with Mikey Mulryne running the length of the pitch but not to be out shone Edward Dobson duly delivered a carbon copy play in the very next match. William Farnsworth and Charles Cook were a constant threat showing great pace and side stepping ability. Albert Wilton and Angus Thomson were men possessed in defence but unfortunately the cold got the better of George Calvert and William Bazire-Smith by the end. As William asked if he could come off during the last match he left me with quote of the day "Sir, I sometimes think to myself is it all worth it?’’. Thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, thanks and well played chaps!
