Unfortunately, we didn’t manage to win any games. We did however come away with our heads held high! We managed to score in every game and lost our first 2 games by only a small margin. In our final game we went toe to toe with the overall tournament winners, losing by only 1 try in the final play of the game.
There were some fantastic individual performances – Uyi, Brandon breaking through tackles and scoring tries for fun and David showing off his fancy footwork and making it extremely difficult for the defence to get a hold of him.
As a team they were fantastic, they supported each other and there was never a bad word when things didn’t go our way. As always, our students have really shown their resilience and their sportsmanship tonight and they should all be proud of what they have been able to achieve in such a short time.
There is one standout performance which I believe, and I’m sure Mr Charles will agree, needs a huge mention. We opted to make Jaykob our captain for the evening. He led from the front and motivated the team when they needed it and heads were going down. He has really shown himself at his best today and I hope he is able to bring that confidence back into daily school life.
