APEC – Shanghai school’s tournament – last weekend by Stan Harman
Back from a successful APAC tournament. A very busy few days for all of us. 31games in all, 3 on the pitch for every game, every 4th game’s a break, So hard work, but all pulled through and were positive about it. Dawn and Jeremy, learnt a lot I think, even though it was only school boy rugby. Intensity and tension in every game made it important to get every decision right. Much was discussed on and off the field; so all in all a valuable experience for everyone.
