Young ruggers out to create history

A GROUP of tiny tots are just three games away from creating history.

The Suva Methodist Primary School Under-11 rugby side is unbeaten in their grade in the Suva Kaji Rugby competition and could end the season with their winning run intact. Another way they could create history is by stopping their opponents from scoring any points against them.

Team coach Selau Cama said the team was confident of achieving the feat at the end of the season.

"We are unbeaten and no team has scored any try against us in all our games this season," he said.

"We hold the challenge title in the U11 grade and after three more challenges, we will qualify for the quarter-finals and then we hope to reach the final so that we can win the overall title from current holders CMF."

Cama said one of the reasons for his side's stellar performance was the amount of time the team had spent together playing competitive rugby.

"This is the same team that won the Suva U9 title and then they won the U10 title and now they are targeting the U11 title.

"Some new players have come in but we have retained the core of the side.

"Their bonding is unique because they have been playing together for the past two years and this is their third year.

"So if we do win and we keep a clean sheet, then it will be history for our team and our school."
