Under 7s enjoy Hoppers Festival

Date: 26 April 2016

The Under 7’s had 4 teams entered in this years Festival, plus, as a bonus, a team from the Under 6’s was also entered.

The Under 6’s had a terrific introduction to what’s in store for them next season, getting to the Semi-Finals of the 4th place Bowl trophy where they faced the Under 7 Hoppers White team who proved to be too strong. This meant that Hoppers had two teams playing in the Bowl final which turned out to be a brilliant game.  Hoppers Green narrowly beating Hoppers White 11-10.  Great support and attacking rugby displayed by both teams.

Our third team, Fireflies Green achieved the fastest time over the assault course, well done to all of you.  This was a great distraction for all teams during the long day.  We’re still looking for your missing tags!

Our fourth team Fireflies White, also had a fantastic day making it all the way to the Cup final against Wigan.  It was a hard fought and tense game finishing in a draw 7-7.  Both sides defended and attacked with equal precision.  The Winners Cup was shared between both teams.
