On Friday the 14th of June the Stromness Primary 5, 6 and 7 classes participated in a Tag Rugby day having missed the festival the previous week. Taken by Bruce Ruthven and his team of coaches the classes were put into teams and given the equipment needed such as tag belts and bibs. The all-weather pitch in Stromness was the perfect venue for the event and the day was beautiful with a blue sky and white clouds. A mini non-competitive tournament was held with 8 teams playing several matches.
Stromness pupils commented;
“Hi Bruce. We cannot thank you enough for organising and taking our tag rugby festival. We all enjoyed it and had a great time. The round robins were excellent, a big thanks to Tyler Lewington & David Porteous for their refereeing and Liam who was helpful and kind. Thank you again, it was a blast.”
Bruce Ruthven added;
“Stromness Primary 5-7 worked really hard in their festival and were rewarded with some quality rugby and games. The girls especially displayed terrific passing and catching skills and were a match for any boy for pace. I wish the best for the Primary 7 students moving into S1 and look forward to seeing the rest of the school next term.”
