Wow, what a fantastic group of lads.
Despite a traumatic start, due to my terrible navigation skills and arriving at the completely wrong school, we made it and were thrown straight into our first game against Garforth. The lads had no time to prepare but were obviously wanting to change the outcome they had last time they were together on a rugby field.
We played 3 matches and WON each game. We beat Garforth 5-0, Corpus 6-0 and finally the favourites to win the tournament Brigshaw 5-1.
Every single student was amazing, it is hard for me to pick stand out players due to just how good each and every individual was however, Bryan Ntumba needs a very special mention for his ability to maintain a level head when things got heated in our second game. He scored some amazing tries and ensured that he was able to leave the field with his head held high, knowing he had been the “bigger man” in the situation. Secondly, Jaykob White, he was fantastic again this tournament. He captained the team, took charge of situations and encouraged the boys to communicate. Due to this the team became more organised and much more devastating to play against. Jaykob led from the front, making tackles well above his weight and making sure that we were always set in defence.
