PES Spartans U50KGS Rugby Season (Coach: Mr Somerville)

On the second week of term 3 around 50 year 5 & 6 boys trialled for a spot in the school rugby team. Mr sommerville (coach) and Mrs V (sports co ordinator) had a hard time selecting a team.  Trials were complete and 14 boys were selected to play. The Spartans U50kgs rugby team was born.

On the 3rd of September the Spartan went to the Tamaki Zones Rugby Tournament. The Spartans versed 3 teams Tamaki, Ruapotaka and Sylvia Park Primary School. Tamaki was the first team they versed and boy did they give them a wake up call to show how tough they were. So then the Spartans played their hardest against the next teams. After winning all their pool games they faced Tamaki in the finals. It was tough for them, Spartans, but they gave it their all and came home victorious. Winning this tournament gave them a ticket to the Auckland Champs.

The Spartans met their match! Facing the 12 most fierce, competitive teams in Auckland. They played six games won three, loss 2 and drew 1. Overall the Spartans came fifth beating Pomaria Primary. Their season didn't end there.

They still had their Marist Primary Schools Tournament. There were four teams in this tournament and the Spartans were unbeatable winning the tournament 31  and 1 conceded. The most valuable player of the tournament went to the author of this story, Stevenson Erick! CHEEHOOOOOOOO!

Spartans played well this season winning 2 out of 3 tournaments. Thank you to our coach Mr Somerville for teaching us heaps of skills & tips. We hope you coach us again next year.
