Rugby Pompallier Tournament
On Sunday we sent two rugby teams to compete in the annual Marist Club Pompallier Rugby tournament being played in Ashburton against teams from Christchurch, Ashburton and Timaru.
Our 11/12 year team won one game and lost two and our 9/10 year team had a win, draw and a very close lose.  They also competed in tug-of-war and sprint races.  Congratulations to these teams on their sportsmanship as we won the Overall Fairplay trophy for all age groups.
Thank you very much to the parents who offered to transport the children and to our coaches for taking time out on a Sunday to coach the teams and also our extra players who came and played for us.
