Kids showcase vast array of rugby skills in blitzes across the province
Last week, 1,748 boys and girls took to the pitches around the province to compete in blitzes run by Leinster Rugby community rugby officers (CROs), with the help of local county councils.
The tag rugby blitzes were held in seven venues around the province: Tallaght Stadium (450 kids), Athy RFC (140), North Kildare RFC (260), DLSP (250), Blackrock College RFC (300), Longford RFC (200) and Caragh National School, Naas (150).
Over the past few months, pupils prepared for blitzes with the help of Leinster Rugby club community rugby officers (CCROs), training and perfecting the rugby skills they learned through the tag rugby programme in their schools.
Well done to the pupils for togging out and turning all the rugby blitzes into competitive and fun events.
If any schools or youth clubs would like to participate in the tag rugby programme, please contact the CRO for your area - all their details can be found at leinsterrugby.ie.
