Playing any sport in 35 degrees is a big ask but to be involved in a touch carnival where the primary prerequisite is to run your fastest when on the field, continuously through seven games, now that is a big ask. To their credit, the Carmel team chosen for this tournament rose to the occasion. Working hard together on defence saw them stifle numerous forays by the opposition runners and the time spent practising their running and passing after school allowed some exciting try scoring of their own to follow. The parents viewing this spectacle were impressed with what they saw and the team thanks them for their support.
