All about rugby
I wonder if I would be this passionate about netball if I didn’t have boys ….
Today was a huge rugby day for us.
Firstly, Jason got to play for the under 9 A team! Huge accomplishment. He has been playing B team all year and it meant the world to him to be chosen as reserve for the A team. He was called up to play during the match and I was really impressed with his performance. Very well done to Jason and of course his team (who won yet again)
It was especially sweet when (after the match) his coach asked the team to ‘welcome’ him and another little guy who played for the A team for the first time by giving them a round of applause. I thought that was a really nice gesture.
Then we get to Quintus’ game. Well, for the past 2 years Quintus’ team has lost against this school. Last year they lost 40 – 0 ….. I remember feeling SO bad for my son and his team mates. No-one wants to see that kind of defeat on a child’s face.
This year though, they completely made up for it by winning 7 – 5. They scored the winning try in the last minute of the game. It was so awesome. I have never seen the parents get so excited lol The mom’s were on the field as soon as the final whistle went.
That would include me! It’s just so important for their self-esteem. For knowing that they are still good enough. I’m so so proud of them. I’m especially proud of Quintus, who by far played his best game ever. There is just no explaining how well he did.
Then little Zander got his La Hoff rugby jersey today. They are playing their first matches on Saturday. Expect many photos
Yes I’m very happy tonight.
