Deena and I had been relaxing in Uganda for a week when last Friday we were joined by a team of female volunteers Uganda for a Tag Rugby development Trust Tour. Most of the volunteers were representative rugby league players and a great bunch of girls.
This is a charity whom we’ve been working with and we decided to join them on a tour to see what they get up to. (Check outwww.tagrugbytours.com for more info)
This was a slightly shorter Tour than they usually run with just one weeks coaching primary school children and building up to the volunteers (us included), competing in an International womens 7’s Tournament in Kampala as a finale this coming weekend.After a couple of days acclimatising (& white water rafting down the Nile which was an extreme method of team bonding) the Tag coaching started for real and it was a hectic start, even for those of us who have coached in Africa before. In the first school we encountered 140 enthusastic children.
