Well its a big weekend in the Rugby World Cup..and its a big weekend for us as its the last week of training before our first matches !
Can we all remember gum shields for U9s upwards
The last half an hour of training this week the U9s will be Mixing with the U10s to form 3 teams or so for some "mini matches" played to under 9s rules to allow the U9S their first taste of a "real game" with contact ...be it a grab and hold tackle for 3 seconds or a "tower of power ring of steel" low down tackle -we will referee the matches with the emphasis on "coaching" as we ref and of course safety of the players will be paramount
The U10s will also get to mix with some of the U11s again playing to U10s rules
The club house has been really busy during the World Cup which is great ...don't forget to watch your team there on the big screens
The club house is open to all but please respect it- no post training food or feet on the new sofas please - save the jumping about for the pitch!
