As it played out, Carr Manor finished 2nd in our group and Farnley came 1st, meaning that our best performances were against the best teams within our group. The team were amazing and should take a huge amount of pride in the determination they have shown throughout the tournament.
It doesn’t stop there… We have now been entered into the “Rhinos 9s Champions League” which will see the team having another opportunity to win some silverware in coming weeks. Hopefully another training session would see them dramatically improve and with the confidence they have gained I believe they could go far.
The moment of the night was the “best” tackle of the evening…
Emmanuel managed to get tackled by the attacking player carrying the ball as he ran straight over him, he bounced back up and was ready to go again which was fantastic to see.
Fantastic night, fantastic lads, and I look forward to taking them to the next tournament.
The team are:
Ellis Obosu, James Kaba, Sekou Kourouma, Alfie Morrison, Tiago Malu, Jack Hood, Emmanuel Pelo,
Harry Cawthorne, Aleksander Bogdanowicz, Kai Leeming, Riley Clark, Denzel Chimwara,
Chinonso Okunbor & Evan Whitford
