Rugby 7s

Our Rugby 7s won the Auckland champs and then they went to the New Zealand champs. They took out the tournament and also won some shiny trophies. They were presented to them because they are now the NZ champs. A couple of players from each school were chosen for Tournament team. Most of the players in Pt England plays for Mt Wellington Warriors. They played many games and won all of them with very large scores. Charm got many cool tries. I would love to be in the rugby 7s team in the future! Well Done boys!

Warriors Vs West Tigers

Waiting for Simon Mannering to flip the coin, I ran to the kitchen to grab some ice-cream. My mum made an apricot sponge so we had that with our ice-cream. I walked to the lounge so that I wouldn't trip it over. Sitting down on my king size bed I saw the game start. Mmmm, it was a tasty snack. My mum said we were going to enjoy the game with this desert. Benji kicked the ball straight past the posts. What a kick I said to myself. That's a good start to the game.

With lots of determination the Warriors smashed over the Tigers and then Benji stopped the Warriors captain Mannering. Simon Mannering dropped the ball then Benji  picked it up and stepped through the team. He stepped Russell Packer, hit Mallony, zoomed past Kevin Locke and last but not least, passed it out wide to Robbie Farrah and it was an incredible try!

Film Festival: Billy T

Brody and his yellow towel made me laugh so loud that every one could hear me in the cinema. No one could make me laugh except him. I wish I could be as funny as him because I would really like to make every one laugh. Check out his funny video here!

RWC Opening Ceremony

With a countdown starting from ten, my Auntie opened the ceremony with a Karanga. If you don't know what a Karanga is it is a welcome translated in Maori. An amazing haka group came to the center of the field and performed a stunning haka. They were the champions of Matatini and the name of their group is Te Matari O Rehu.

I saw this glowing ball, which this 11 year old boy was using while he was running around on Eden Park thinking he was a famous Rugby player. But by the looks of it he actually looked like a Rugby player. He was smashing all these rugby players that were actually volunteers for the opening.

While running down the line of famous rugby players’ names he saw this shadow. The shadow was Jonah Lomu standing right next to his name. He put the ball down in front of him, and he flew up. He was flying up to this big massive ball. He touched it and held on to the big white ball.

I hope there will be another cool grand opening like that for the next Rugby World Cup.
