Fu­ture is very bright as Wick­low U-12s bid farewell to mi­nis rugby

Bray People - - SPORT -

LAST WEEKEND Wick­low RFC U-12s trav­elled to Mun­ster with a squad of 30 play­ers, coaches and par­ents to mark their tran­si­tion from mi­nis rugby to youths.

They stayed in Trabol­gan for two nights. The par­ents and coaches had put a big ef­fort in over the year to fundraise for the tour.

They played Mi­dle­ton RFC and rep­re­sen­ta­tive sides, Chep­stow from Wales and Bat­tersea from Eng­land.

Over the course of two days a huge amount of tough free flow­ing rugby was played with Wick­low show­ing off their com­pet­i­tive skills, par­tic­u­larly against some of the big­ger teams.

The end of the tour saw them take to the full size pitch in a 15-a-side match in a highly en­ter­tain­ing game against Mi­dle­ton closely fought but nar­row­ing los­ing out by one score.

The fu­ture is bright for this group of kids as they pre­pare for the move up to the youth sec­tion next year, al­ready with an eye on fu­ture sil­ver­ware. As al­ways new play­ers wel­come; con­tact U-12s coach Alan Long on 086 8502030.
