Our final game was against Carr Manor. We went into the game with our heads held high and a determination to come away from the game with a win without conceding a try. The team started very strong, running in tries quickly from anywhere on the field. Some fantastic defensive efforts from Bryan, Uyi and Aaron meant that we were able to keep Carr Manor from scoring. As a collective they were able to run in 9 tries and win the game 9-0!
At the end of the tournament the atmosphere within the team was electric. Everyone had played every minute of every game due to us only having 9 in attendance. They have shown incredible heart and have done themselves and the school proud.
We are now through to the “Rhinos 9s Super League” tournament in the summer. If successful they will go through to a final tournament which will be played at Headingley Stadium where the Rhinos play.
The team were as follows:
Bryan Ntumba, Uyi Igbinovia Ashulimen, Bradley Wambalu, Victory Ukah, Edwin Dos Reis Hopffer, Carrick Nguekap Njinko, Godwill Peprah,
Scott DeGbalou & Aaron Obosu
They were fantastic and once again remind me of why I give up my time to ensure they do not miss out on these opportunities to represent MSM.
