Girls’Tag Rugby

Girl’s Tag Rugby Festival @ West Norfolk Rugby Club


It was the first time we had entered this festival and all the girls in 5/6 along with a couple of year 4s took part and embraced the game. They were divided into 2 teams, Sandringham Saints and Storm and they played every team that had attended. It was a tentative start, getting used to a much bigger pitch and the speed at which it is played, the games were back to back. However, they soon adjusted and with every game their skills improved. Although no scores were taken both teams won some of their games with tries being scored by many of them. They all said they had enjoyed the event and the opportunity to play other girl’s teams. The coaches picked out 2 girls from each team who they felt had improved, shown respect, were a good team player and never gave up, they received medals. As always, all our girls deserved those, they just listened and gave it their best shot.

They also had the opportunity to meet, chat to and have their photo taken with Georgie Lingham who is a member of the GB Rugby 7s teams heading to Paris for the Olympics.

Well done everyone!
