Poppy, Riley and Han were selected to represent the Monk’s Walk tag rugby team after tough trials two weeks prior.
After a warm up, the two teams, made up of children from a selection of Monk’s Walk primary schools faced competition against teams put together from other primary schools, representing their link secondary school.
Han represented Italy. Riley and Poppy represented Scotland. These children hadn’t competed together before. Riley scored some fantastic solo tries. Poppy with some awesome tagging of the opposition and Han for her passing ability.
Everyone showed fantastic communication and team work skills alongside a lovely attitude to work with others. The final result reflected this as Italy came first and Scotland second. Thank you to Welwyn Rugby Club for allowing us to use their facilities and the Monk’s Walk sports’ leaders for refereeing and collating scores.
