Youth round up
Two very good weeks of attendance despite it being the half term period so a big thanks all round, its also been great to see a few new players join the group and hope you’ve enjoyed the time with us so far.
We’ve seen some very committed players of late across the ages especially on the tagging front, all those tagging games are coming together now, the younger players are really developing well which is testament to their learning skills, especially listening.
What has warmed us the most of late is seeing the enjoyment and smiles on the players faces and that arguably is the most important rugby value at this early stage of their rugby lives. If the players are enjoying it they are more likely to continue to come along and recommend us to their friends and on that note it was nice to receive some feedback this morning on that very subject.
A big weekly well done to our medal winners, It will soon be player of the month, so keep up the good work.
This weekend saw a great session at Dorchester Rugby Club. Yet again another superb session with great tries, tags, passing and most of all TEAMWORK.
The other teams parent and coaches all commented on how well our players knew the rules and how they worked as a team. As coaches this is music to our ears and shows us that players are listening and takeing on board feedback and coaching points.
Massively proud of all of our under 7's and proud to be a small part of your rugby Journey.
Great rugby by the U8s this week at Dorchester...team work, passing, try scoring, defending- the works!
Thank you to all those that travelled to Dorchester on a cold and wet day.
We won all but one our 6 games, with lots of positive areas in our game running, handling, tackling and mauling. We were pretty much outplayed in the ruck and breakdown struggling to protect our own ball and clear out and challenge any of there ball. They also ripped the ball surprisingly from us a number of times. So we will work on this in the coming sessions. Most pleasing was how we dealt with players of bigger size and weight in the tackle once we learnt to tackle low and double up on our strength.
Well done James, Dan H Rippa Rugby players of the day and Kian for man of steel award, and well done all.
