On Thursday 16th June, Bruff RFC had their annual primary schools end of season Blitz Day. Schools participating were: St.Patrick’s NS Bruree, Scoil Dean Cussen Bruff and Cloverfield NS.
The day consisted of a boys blitz and a girls blitz in turn trying to promote boys rugby at Bruff RFC but also to increase girls playing numbers at mini rugby, Under 13 and Under 15 level.
The game of Touch Rugby promotes the evasive and running skills of rugby without the tackle therefore promoting running rugby and increased handling skills. Each boys and girls blitz displayed great running rugby with great handling, passing and tries scored. Each of the 3 schools recieved 3 Play Rugby packs an initative of the IRFU in which schools themselves promote the game of touch and tag rugby in the form of Lepreachan rugby with non contested scrums and lineouts in their PE time.
A thank you to the 3 primary schools on the day and the other 8 Primary Schools in which Bruff RFC Schools Rugby coach, Ed Hennessy and CCRO Eoin Cahill attended throughout the 2015/16 season.
Also a thank you to girls Underage coach at Bruff RFC, Joe Kelly who at the last minute helped referee games and Development Officer at Munster Rugby Euan Gee for refereeing and Bruff RFC for the use of facilities on the day.
