Seapoint RFC recently hosted the opening round of the Disability Tag Rugby season.
The annual event saw the club as a whole along with the Seapoint Dragons hosting Salmo Eagles, Greystones Seagulls, Westmanstown Taggers and recently formed Barnhall Buffaloes.
There 30 junior players and 75 senior players, , both male and female from eight years of age upwards, making it a bigger success than last year's event which had a total of 80 players.
Grit, determination and courage were the qualities on display alongside friendship and sportsmanship. Everyone was a winner on the day.
Club ties were presented to the coach of each visiting team.
Many thanks to Seapoint Dragons patron Felix Jones (Seapoint, Munster and Ireland) and Westmanstown patron Isaac Boss (Leinster and Ireland) for turning up to lend their support to their teams and to cheer on the excellence in rugby demonstrated on the pitches.
Their attendance was a source of encouragement to the players and everyone who attended.
Our stars enjoyed their tag matches, developing their skills and showing their improvement to their families and friends who had a brilliant day out in the friendly environment while cheering on their players and meeting new people.
All of the attendees took a final group photo together and sent on their support messages to Joe Schmidt's Ireland team before their World Cup match against France, which turned out to be a huge success!
A great spread was provided by the parents of the Seapoint Dragons and all participants left home with happy faces and a Seapoint goodie bag.
Thanks to everyone who made it possible.
