WBOP Rippa Rugby World Cup 2019 - Results
Monday, May 27, 2019
Written by Buddy Meyer, Tamariki Regional Schools Director
In comparison to last year’s tournament when the weather gave us rain that was literally sideways, this year the conditions were perfect.
This tournament is a premier event on the Primary School Sport Calendar with many schools having played in the RIPPA module competitions as part of their preparation.
Each school entered 2 mixed teams, year 3 & 4 and year 5 & 6 and represented a country as part of the “World Cup” theme. After some pretty hotly contested games in pool play the teams split off into the Championship, the Shield, the Plate and the Bowl divisions.
This year’s 3 & 4 overall winners are Fairhaven School. The year 5 & 6 winners are Greenpark School.
Congratulations to everyone that took part. A special thank you to Regan and his team from BOP Rugby for running the tournament.
