Rugby … again …
Just as we though the rugby season was a thing of the past … we got news that it was not! One of the other teams
was rumoured to have been disqualified withdrew from the league and Jason’s team got another chance to make it through to Bondedag. (Where only two teams of each province get to take part)
They had to play against a school we have never even heard of, in a town 2 hours from here. This after not practising for the last 3 weeks. They rocked! They won 10 – 5. The scoreboard doesn’t do justice though. They were in control of the game at least 70 % of the time.
Even though my Jason is a reserve player who has not played for the last two games, it doesn’t make him any less a part of the team. I loved seeing him come of the field with such a big smile on his face, after meeting up with the team at half-time.
We are all very proud of them for winning this game. I so loved seeing them group-hug after the game. They were ecstatic. Although they did remember the other team while praying after the game. As one of the boys said – “Now they know how we felt when we lost. It’s not nice”
Something that was really awesome too, was the support our boys had. Almost every single little boy had someone there to support him.
I can’t say the same for the other team (who only had 60 km to travel to play)
Plans have been made. Bookings done. The same supporters will be travelling with the boys to Groblersdal at the end of next month!
