Year 5 and 6 entered a Tag Rugby Tournament on Thursday 10th October at Blackburn Rughby Club.
Tag Rugby is not a sport we run as an after school club so the team were picked through children showing good potential in PE lessons. Therefore the children had not played a single game together!
However in true Shadsworth style this made no difference! The children very quickly found their feet and got to grips with the game. No holds barred they went for every tag and every try they could get and did they get some!
We managed to win our first two games in the tournament which was fantastic as we were drawn against some very good schools. The third game was very close with the teams taking turns to score a try! Unfortunately time ran out as the other team were one try up but this did not matter we still qualified for the quarter finals.
Unfortunately for us we were drawn against the team who have won the tournament for the last 5 years... and they beat us but only just!
We were so proud of the boys and girls who played especially at their attitude to the game and each other. As usual they were a fantastic team and did Shadsworth proud.
Well done Guys!!
