More than 250 boys and girls converged on Suttonians RFC for their eagerly anticipated Primary School tag rugby blitz.

The schools involved had just completed a Play Rugby programme; many had ed rugby before but had not played in a blitz.

National School pupils from The Burrow, Bayside and St Fintans had learnt all the skills to play the game and this was certainly evident on the day.

The 6th class blitz was played in great spirit, with all the children really enjoying the day.

All the matches were tightly contested and the final was played between The Burrow and Bayside, with Burrow winning.

A massive thank you must go to all the referees, teachers and principals for their help.

Also to Suttonians for allowing the use of their facilities for the morning and the coaching work done by Glenn Predy of Leinster Rugby throughout.

If any other schools in the Sutton area would like to participate in similar programmes, please contact Glenn Predy on 086 3994839 or email
