Under 12s Update
The U12s are the last year of mini rugby before moving into the junior section.
Scrums are uncontested and there are no lineouts but other than that at 12 a side on a half pitch with all the other trappings of the senior game it makes for a very physical game with little space.
Playing on the school side, for the first 4 weeks of the season it’s all been about training for this seasons new rules. And then in the last week of September the start of the festival season.
On the 30th Sept squads headed to the Bedford and Beaconsfield festivals respectively. Coaches and parents alike were delighted to see players committing to the game plan of fast and open rugby. Maybe some work still to be done on the ruck, both in attack and defence, but the win record was positive across the two festivals. This weekend one squad went to Henley and again returned a positive win record playing 5 and winning 3.
Next weekend we look forward to our own festival at Woollams whilst Amersham and Chiltern host away teams.
Busy times and only made possible by the amazing work of the volunteer coaching and support teams.
If you haven’t been to Woollams on a Sunday it’s well worth the visit to see the future of OA rugby.
U12s Victorious in Chichester
Last weekend the U12s headed down to Chichester and also came home with the spoils having played 7, won 6 and drawn 1 against sides including Harpenden, Dorking and Wimbledon.
