01 Dec U13 Rugby V Stoke College (away)
They say the test of a good premier league football team is how they perform on a cold winters day away to Stoke City. So we decided to challenge our U13’s Rugby team with a cold winter’s trip to Stoke College. Cold weather equals cold hands. Cold hands makes it hard to throw and catch – two essentials of rugby!
The boys, however, showed outstanding determination and desire to play attacking rugby, making some excellent runs and, as the match moved on, passing the ball well to make the most of spaces. We combined the boys from CIS and Stoke to make two ‘Barbarian’ teams. The result was a feast of tries, with each of the CIS boys scoring at least once.
So, what did we find out about our U13s on a cold day in Stoke-by-clare? Well, they can all play superb attacking rugby, they have the confidence to work with and meet new people and the resiliance to play in any conditions.
Well done boys great work!
