Firstly Happy New Year to all.
The first rugby match came with 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 really enjoyed the afternoon as 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.
Team Dylan Felix, Luis, Matt, Arun, Luis, Marcos, Oscar, Arthur and Dan
