In September the boys started some new activities…
Ethan started rugby.
He had only watched it on TV a few times but he said he wanted to try it so every Sunday morning and Wednesday evening he gets himself very muddy and has a brilliant time. A lot of the children (all boys!) in his team have been playing since they were around 5 years old! They have gradually learned the skills and rules as they have progressed with each year a new technique or skill being introduced. So he has had a lot to take on.
He is getting there – most of all he has lots of fun!
Last Saturday he went to watch Leicester Tigers. This was his first experience of a live professional match. First of all, he trained with the Tigers’ coach and scored two tries! It was very wet and muddy!
He even got to meet some of the players!
Are you a Rugby fan? Will you be watching the Six Nations when it starts soon?
