Rugby 7's Kicks Off

BCC had our first in last week's round going down to BSHS 19-0. Coach Messitt reported that the score didn’t reflect the game however. He confessed that it took a while for the boys to get into the game, given their limited training leading up to it, and BSHS well drilled, playing together in club form and an extra week’s game's practice last week for a good hit out. Two tries were just simple missed tackles from lack of game practice and their speedster on their team punished us. 

The remaining games were then called off due to the lightning (storm). ~ Jeff Messitt.

International sevens rugby coach and former player, Michael Hooke dropped in on our teams' training session on Friday. Michael has experience playing at the top level, as well as coaching the German National Women's Rugby 7's squad. He ran our students through some drills, focusing on 'space' and adapting to the unique opportunities rugby sevens offers. In an interview with our Community Engagement Officer Matt Gees he shared his passion when working with young people and admiring their creativity with the game.
