With the season coming to an end it was great day for rugby, over 200 boys and girls converged on Suttonians RFC for their eagerly anticipated Primary School tag rugby blitz…

The schools involved had just completed a six week Play Rugby programme where many had experienced the game for the first time. Over the preceding month and a half pupils from The Burrow National School, Bayside National School and St Laurence National School had learnt all the skills necessary to play the game and this was certainly evident on the day.

The morning kicked off and it was a nice sunny day. It was a 5th class blitz which was played in great spirit. With all the children really enjoying the day and learned some new skills. All the matches were tightly contested and the teams chosen for the final were not the teams who won the most matches but who played the game in good spirit and good sportsmanship.

A massive thank you must go to all the referees, teachers and principals for their help on the day and during the programme. Also, to Suttonians for allowing the use of their facilities for the morning and  the coaching work done by Glenn Predy of Leinster Rugby throughout.

If any other schools  in the Sutton area would like to participate in similar programmes please contact Glenn Predy on 086 3994839 or email on SuttoniansCCRO@leinsterrugby.ie.
