A huge day with a few drops of rain never spoiled the Year 3/4 Rippa tournament held at Petone Rec!
All the young punks dodged, ripped, sprinted, slipped, ate sausages & laughed in the rain while the parents hung out at the coffee cart.
50 teams from 28 schools attended with their teachers wrapped up in raincoats guided their players around the rec!
The athletic looking Wgtn RDOs refereed the games and former All Black Great Dave Loveridge was in charge of the sausage sizzle!
With all the fun came the winners of the pools and they were….. with former All Black, Hurricane & Wellington Lions player John Schwalger to present the match ball
