    We won the rugby match!!

     
    First of all, I started playing rugby after entering university. And I am sophomore year now. So I have played rugby for 2 years.

    There are some beginners like me, no big players and only 11 players. But the rugby match needs 15 players so I cannot imagine winning game.

    Then we decided to help American football club in our university each other because they don’t have enough players. Moreover, other universities helped us; For example, teaching how to play and practicing together. And we joined adult team to participate in a rugby game. Because of them, we were able to get have a good experience. And also old players helped us financially to buy balls and so on.

    Eventually, the match day arrived in 9th November 2013. We borrowed 4 players from football club. We were so tense but many people who classmates, graduates and students from other school came to encourage us. And our game started. Our plan was to run more than opponents because we were weaker than them. We got first try and dominate this game. But we were tied score by them leaving 3 minutes. However we were so exhausted, we had never gave up. So a member of us got last try, but I was not able to see it because I formed a scrum. Then we won this match and all of us cried with happiness.

    Our club has not won regular match so this winning was first for our club. We made big history. I want to thank all people who support me. These are my family, friends and teammates.
