The second annual Indoor rugby Flag tournament was held at EPND Ste Sophie on Saturday for Under 10s.
In total, 9 teams participated, representing the three rugby clubs and Ste Sophie school. As per last week in the Under 12 competition, the school teams performed very well against the more experienced club players.
In the final placings Ste Sophie again finished runner-up to RCL. This time it was RCL ‘B’ who scored 13 tries, with Ste Sophie ‘C’ team managing 9, closely followed by CSCE and Walferdange, both just one try away.
Flag Rugby is played indoors without any contact and with emphasis on the principles of play, notably continuity and evasive running. All teams played very well, highly competitive as would be expected at this age, and with over 50 tries scored within the two and a half hours play, the spectators were well entertained and impressed.
Next week will see the Under 8s compete in the same format with games commencing at 13:30 again.
