Rain fails to dampen the spir­its for Ark­low RFC minis

Wicklow People - - SPORT -

SATUR­DAY, Novem­ber 3, was a wet and windy morn­ing but it didn’t de­ter the brave-hearted minis from Ark­low RFC who hosted large trav­el­ling con­tin­gents from Tul­low and New Ross for a minis rugby blitz.

Teams from Un­der 7s, Un­der 8s, Un­der 9s and Un­der 10s played their hearts out in the wind and rain and dis­played fan­tas­tic char­ac­ter and some bril­liant rugby skills through­out the morn­ing.

It is days like this that strengthen teams and the teamwork on dis­play across all age grades was demon­stra­ble with some beau­ti­ful team tries from one end of the pitch to the other.

There was great en­cour­age­ment from coaches, par­ents and wider fam­i­lies on the side lines who de­serve a spe­cial men­tion for their sup­port given the con­di­tions.

It was also great to see the ca­ma­raderie be­tween the rugby play­ers and wider rugby com­mu­nity in the tra­di­tional hos­pi­tal­ity in the club­house af­ter­wards.

Well done to Ark­low, Tul­low and New Ross on a great morn­ings rugby. The spirit of rugby is alive and well in Ark­low RFC.
