Colts Rugby Launches Season
The Colts Rugby team had their first game of the season, playing in atrocious conditions on the back pitch of B field, against a small but courageous team from Southridge School, who braved a rough crossing, snow, and a Malahat closure to find their way to the game.
The game provided an opportunity for our new players to learn the game by playing it, in the same spirit as a man who jumps off a cliff and tries to build a plane on the way down. No one knew what they were doing, chaos reigned, the ball squirted about, players scrambled everywhere, and it all ended too quickly.
I think we won. Fergus made an exceptional tackle, Robbie hit rucks, Ope slipped his man, and Vlad ran like a bull.
Judging by the smiles, the day was a huge success.
Mr Phil, Smith, Coach
