Boy's Rugby Match

Posted by Simon

Tom and Ben had their first mini rugby tournament this Saturday. The matches were against three other clubs. Unfortunately for the under 7s only one of the other teams fielded a team for that age group (of 5 players), but as Flers had 15 players they were divided into 3 teams of 5 players. Each match was a 5 minute each way affair and all the kids had to do was to score a try whilst attempting to stop the opposition from getting their try. All very basic.

Tom made some excellent tackles and scored a couple of trys, whilst Ben also made a good tackle and some runs forward. Ben is not so keen at the moment to get right into the fray - something to do with a wobbly tooth and not wanting it to fall out (I have told him the tooth fairy/mouse will still come even if he loses the tooth) - but he still managed to score a try later on.

We all had a fun afternoon and it was lovely to see them turn out it the team colours.


  1. Sounds brilliant and a lovely way to spend a family afternoon.
    Glad you had a good weekend, I bet every bit of relaxation is welcome at the moment with so much going on.

  2. Hi all,
    sounds like everything is going well. Im sure i made no sense at all on the phone the other night! Have just been catching up with all your blog posts and couldnt help but notice this one. Needless to say i have been searching the internet for childrens size wallabies jerseys to send over. Just imagine the repect Tom and Ben would be given wearing the mighty green and gold to the next rugby tournament!!!!!!

    Hope everything is well

  3. Could be worse, Adam, we could have one playing for England and one for France - how could I live the latter down? And they will only wear that green and gold when you wear an England shirt!!!
