Zachary had his first rugby game a week ago. It was a lot of fun! Pete had to explain the game to me, which is cross between football and soccer.
I learned lots of new terms like "scrum" and "ruck".
Zachary did great! Even against the player above who was easily 3 times his size!
He was fast!
Here he is scoring a "try", which is what they call a touchdown. Good try Zach!
After the game (they won) they spent a little time scrimmaging each other.
The weather was beautiful. I am guessing we won't be so lucky for the rest of the season (although this weekend is also supposed to be nice). Apparently there is no such thing as "weather delay" in rugby, so we are in for a few cold and wet ones! Bring it on!
