An excellent display by King’s Pirates U10 players who joined up with Old Dunstonians for the 2017 Beccs festival. The team came together very well through the tournament, with the last two games containing a number of highlights – in no particular order: Jacob’s well-taken try and last-minute try saving tackle in Game 4, Micah’s all-round tackling and handling performance likely to catch the selectors’ eye in Game 3, Tom’s new-found rucking and support play in Games 3 and 4, and Luca’s wonder tackle at full tilt and full stretch in Game 4.
The suspicion of performance-enhancing drugs was allayed when tournament officials discovered that the whole team had had a bag of sweeties each before Game 4 and were under the influence of a collective sugar rush. This explained the manic energy and general running around madly during the game.
Well done to all players and their parents for standing around in the cold, cheering heartily, and generally having fun. Thank you.
