Dundee Eagles Tournament

Mackie Mackie Mackie Oi Oi Oi
The super six that showed up today fought past staved fingers, running stitches, tumbles to the ground and not being able to take the super sub option to show some good rugby key skills during their age grade games.
The Mackie Reds were a little rusty remembering how to pass, use support play and make the tackle hold/ complete for the first couple of games but after "what questions have you got for me" to the coaches there was a marked improvement in the following games.
The players stopped running sideways and attacked the space in front of them, used the ground as their friend and popped the rugby ball to supporting players and were either then off loading or scoring well earned tries.
For our next festival use your rugby brain to have a think about what I need to stop doing and need to start doing to make my rugby skills improve for myself and the squad.
Big thanks to all parents for getting the players there on time, being pitch side supporters in the lovely autumnal sunshine and making sure everyone got their hot snack at the end.
You should be able to see the squad photos on this website.
For the super six that showed up today and dug deep in all their games for all their team mates, it is a massive well done from the coaches and parents who were on the touch lines watching some great rugby.
Rugby Tastic peeps!
