Since the boys had such a good time and were really pleased with the day, I thought it would be great to have feedback from some of them.
“On Tuesday was the rugby fixture, we were split into 3 groups. I was in the green tagged team. The fixture was against Beachborough and was great fun. We were moving from one game to another. I think my team was great, but I think I needed improvement. After a water break there were more matches this time Beachborough was moving; I think I still needed improvement. Then there was fixture tea. I had a muffin and 2 cheese sandwiches. We had to sit next to Beachborough. I found a lonely Beachborough boy and sat next to him. After we headed back.”
“My second rugby fixture was awesome! When we first met Beachborough we changed to our boots and got on the pitch. Mr Gough made a mistake and forgot to tell us to take the mud off our boots, so we had to take off any mud we had made on the astro. In any case the match was brilliant! The first 3 were awesome, but unfortunately, I got tagged a couple of times, but I got three tries in total. The other matches were quite hard, but the more harder it is the more fun you have. After the match we got a drink and changed back into trainers and tracksuits and got everything we needed. After that we went to get match tea and when we got our food I looked around and it was like a café in there. I had 3 cheese sandwiches and a chocolate muffin.”
“I really enjoyed my rugby game but wanted to see the scores. I got 12 tries in the whole of the fixture. I really enjoyed playing and most of all having fun. Thank you Mr Gough, the first time I know I didn’t know much, but you have taught me so much about the values of rugby and passing and dodging. I know that I am doing these in this match and all our matches, you’ve made me to be really happy.”
“My team was good at defending and tagging the other team. There were not many knock-ons and no forward passing. We had lots of running forward and clear passes. Good effort at staying on side, but a bit more using two hands not one, and no handing off people trying to tag you.””
