Ripper Rugby and Rugby Champions

It was Wednesday morning and the year 5 & 6 girls Ripper Rugby team and the 2 rugby boys team is having a tournament at Dunkirk. When we finished getting ready, the girls went in the van , but the poor boys had to waste there energy on walking a long way to Dunkirk. Since us , the girls got there , our coach said " Girls lets set up the Gizibo and put our bags on it so the boys think that we can do it", So we had to do it.
By the time the boys got there we were already warming up , then some of them Said " That was quick".

After our coach , Miss Vaafusuaga , got back from the managers meeting, she announced that we are playing against Panmure Bridge School first. Panmure Bridge school was already on the field but we were still finding out who were the 7 starters, then our coach said it and then she said " Our captain will be Taunese " when she said that I was feeling a bit funny. The game started and Elizabeth and I already had 2 tries, It was the end of the game and we won by 9 , 0. We had another game coming up and we were playing against Tamaki Primary School . Half of my team thought that they were hard , but the other half thought that they were easy, then I said " we don't know yet because we haven't played them."

We Finished having a game against Tamaki and Sylvia park school and we won both of them.Then we went straight to Semi-finals against Panmure bridge. Our coach left Elizabeth and I as Sub to save our energy for the finals because Panmure Bridge is so easy. When the game finished we had a break , after we had some lunch we went to watch the Spartans finals against Tamaki primary boys. It was a pretty hard game because Tamaki boys was good as our boys, while our coach was watching the Spartans Finals we went and played kicks we our team mates, the alarm went and we heard the boys shout with excitement because the won the finals and they are going to the championship tournament. At last it was our finals against Tamaki, we were on and the game started to get harder , I didn't want to run with the ball because the other didn't have a turn so I passed it to my team mates. The alarm went and Elizabeth already has 4 tries, the score was 7-1. We were so happy that we but it wasn't the end, all of our teams made it to the championship tournament but now it's not Ripper rugby it's Rugby.

Our coach said that everyday we will have training everyday for the Championship. It was the year 5s first time going to the Championship tournament and some of them are scared and some are nervous, even the other year 6s. But Elizabeth , Rowana and I are just used to it and we are looking forward to it.
Here is a picture of us from last year, we won the Auckland Championship Tournament.
