End of the season!

Today was the last day of the 2010 Rugby Union season. It was an early start for a Saturday morning. A 7am alarm to be all fed and driving by 7.30. We drove for an hour and a half to watch the kids play against Singleton under 8's.

Byron promised the kids $10 for any try that they scored. In the second half Rhiannon got the ball, hugged it tight to her chest, put her head down and RAN! She ducked and weaved her way past the other team and SCORED! Byron was holding the folder to scorekeep. When the referee blew his whistle for the try Byron dropped the clipboard and ran in circles whooping for joy! It sure ended the season on a high.

Tomorrow we have the presentation ceremony and we will present the coach with a gift from all the parents. Rob volunteers every Tuesday and Thursday night as well as travelling with his wife and kids every Saturday for the matches. He doesn't get paid, it's just for the love of the game. We framed this years team photo and got the kids to sign underneath it. We also got a really good officials whistle which we have had engraved ready to give him tomorrow. Hopefully he has enjoyed the 2010 season as much as we have!

  1. Congrats to Rhiannon for her big score! I had this vision of Byron running in circles and whopping it up ~ great for my morning laugh!! :)

    Wonderful gifts you got. Those types of coaches are the absolute best in my opinion.
