U7s at Bournemouth Festival
By Angela Mouland
The team and parents dig deep for energy for the final festival of the season at Bournemouth RFC.
155 teams and a giant lion were present, we faced local teams and two touring parties on their first excursion down south. The sun shone and the rugby was free flowing, with high fives after every try.
What stood out most of all on our season finale, was not the skills, but the confidence and the friendship that had grown. Parents always remark how rugby gives freedom and fun away from school and normal friendship groups. What a great season!
