Our Belmont Rugby team was invited by the Director of Sport Impact to participate in the London Youth Games all day event the Rugby MegaFest. Our team consisted of Kobe, Aston, Harry L, Daisy, Julia, Georgia, Finn, Anton and Helen. They were invited due to their exemplary sportsmanship they showed at the cluster and borough rugby competitions. Although the team did not win the borough competition to qualify for the London Youth games, they were so highly praised for their character and rugby skills, they were specifically invited to the MegaFest. The team participated in a variety of activities lead by rugby players to enhance their skills. All children thoroughly enjoyed the day and felt it was valuable to them as athletes. Sports Committee members Sophia and Shirin quoted Anoton, “My favourite bit was when we played Rugby Rounders!” Kobe agreed that this was his favourite game to play, in addition to the Hares and Hounds game. Wow! What an amazing accomplishment and recognition- well done to our rugby team!
