It was the annual 10-a-side tournament at Hopuhopu today: unlike last year when the weather was filthy, we had a fine, mild winter's day, which made for fast and furious running rugby. As much fun as the games themselves, was the kids playing and hanging out between games, getting to know each other and making new friends.
The team did well and there were tries aplenty.
On the way there, Conor said excitedly, 'I'm probably going to have to dive today. I'm probably going to have to sprint. And the sprinting is the best part.' He loves streaking down the wing and long charging runs. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't quite come off.
But when it does: see your opposition.
Pin your ears back.
Go for the corner.
