Touch Rugby

By Gordon Wong

Touch Rugby was played from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th April at Bayfield High School. Along with Golf, it was one of only two sports played outdoors and remarkably only one game of touch suffered from rain. Three teams competed – OSCA, Auckland and Wellington. Competition was fierce and of a high standard. OSCA competed bravely, but it was apparently that Auckland and Wellington players play in regular competition which made all the difference.

Incidentally, Wellington overwhelmed Auckland on the scoreboard in an impressive fast paced final. But in reality the game was closer than the final score suggested.
