                    Last week at Hillfoots
When its the holidays, with large numbers of kids and coaches away, we will play tag rugby to keep everyone’s skills honed!  Our approach is that ‘Everyone plays’ whether you be the youngest P1, or the oldest grandparent!  We started with a massive game of ‘Hawick Ball’ where you can throw the ball forward (easier for the P1s) and then we went into a proper game.  The smaller kids are definitely at an advantage, they are like slippery little elvers and because they are so close to the ground, its hard for the adults to get their tags!

We then split for the youngest kids to play ‘sharks and fishes’ as well as their coaches Susan and Alan attempting to tire them out (not sure that we ever do despite our best efforts!).  This meant that the older kids could play a more competitive game of tag.  The grand finale was the kids against the dads – I am not sure who was more competitive!!
