My Rugby Match

Today was our 4th to last game until our rugby season ends. Today my team ( Under 13 girls) played against Manurewa Marlins at Leabank park. Half of my team were at Fiji for a netball tournament with my coach, which meant that there were only 8 of us playing on the field. In a actual game for our team there is suppose be 10 players a side playing. Today it turned out to be 8 of us playing this meant that everyone in our team couldn't sub off and on. Everyone in my team managed to play for 80 whole minutes, even though the other team had 10 players on. Our supporters were cheering really loud. On the first half  our team managed to score 4 tries and the other team managed to score 3 tries. Even though we were winning we still needed to work on the defense so that the other team could stop scoring more tries. On the last half our team managed to score 3 more tries. I was lucky enough to get one of the tries in the last half. Our supporters were really happy that we were winning, even though we had less players than the other team. The props were really tired so I decided to go in and do some tackling and big hits. There was only 1 more minute,until our game had ended. My team managed to use that minute really good and scored one more try. As the ref blew the whistle for full time all of our supporters started running onto the field and started hugging us with excitement. Our supporters were really proud of the hard work we did, even though we had 8 players. This match was to see who placed 1st. Finally it came to the awarding part.The point of this part was to award money to the top 3 who done really well in this match. I managed to get player of the day including $20. My parents, team, and manager were really proud of me.

  1. Hi Mele,
    That must of been a very good match. This reminds me of when I had my netball match playing for my school, I didn't get player of the day but my friend did and she got 5 dollars. How do you think you got player of the day?

    That's All For now
