Year 5 & 6 Touch Rugby Tournament at Exmouth Rugby Club
An awesome afternoon of Touch Rugby was enjoyed by 11 Teams across our Exmouth learning Community. The afternoon started with the pupils learning the rules and gaining an understanding of the new format of ‘Touch Rugby’. They watch the ECC Sport Leaders play a game with the rules being explained with their visual demonstration. The teams then worked with ECC Sport Leaders and played in a training match against another school. After this schools were put into a ‘Lions’ or ‘Tigers’ competition and played in a Round Robin style tournament.
