Firstly Happy New Year to all.

Well first rugby match and a few challenges due to illness Pennthorpe only had five players so we needed to be a little creative. We decided to leave Dylan as captain which he did well and rotate three groups of three to play for Pennthorpe. It meant we played a competitive match with the bonus of developing skills.

The boys set themselves little targets: passes, tackles etc and I think really enjoyed the afternoon they did well. Final score was a 9-8 win for Copthorne.

The boys are showing a competitive spirit highlighted when a Copthorne boy guesting for Pennthorpe tackled the Pennthorpe player … Boys thank you for your excellent behaviour and parents thanks for your support, always appreciated.
