Rippa Team 5th=

Our Year 6 Rippa team took 5th= in the RWC Year 6 Rippa competition. Their dream of qualifying for the RWC Tournament in Auckland was nearly realised with them beating one of the finalists- Mr Norton’s old school, Fendalton. Unfortunately, they couldn’t keep it up though and their defence let them down a little with a draw in their last pool game which meant they missed the top 4 play-offs.

Pool A:

Game 1: Kaiapoi Borough 6, HCS 5

Game 2: HCS 6, Fendalton 5

Game 3: HCS 6, Marshland 6

Play-off for 5th/6th: HCS 7, Avonhead 7
