Kettering 7's Festival
By Stewart Holford
Seven's was a new experience for most of us, coaches & players. We thought it would be fast & furious & we weren't disappointed. We had Kettering Blues, Kettering whites, Oakham & Deepings all playing a waterfall event.
Our resident 7's expert Bill was on hand to offer advice & training tips. It's a fast game with lots of space on the pitch. It's about attacking the space & getting the ball out wide. All the teams put on superb performances & we witnessed some great running lines, good support, great handling & awesome skills.
We saw approximately 14 Kettering players get tries throughout the event. Overall there were 52 tries over 84mins of playing time by all four teams. A highly entertaining event that that was well supported by all the parents. Deepings went away with the fair play award which was thoroughly deserved, a team who played hard until the end.
A great way to finish our home fixtures this season.
