Our favourite sport is kicking off this week as Tupou College 1stXV will play against ‘Apifo’ou College as the main game at the Teufaiva Park. Tupou College has started this week in preparation for the season and what a way to start as the rugby greats Ex-Students came to load the players with skills and opportunities to play the game to its maximum best. Viliami ‘Ofahengaue “Willie O”, Siaosi ‘Atiola and Manu Tu’ipulotu came to the Mat of Helen to talk to the boys to how the game is played and how it should be.
Most of the Afternoon was theirs, talking with the coaches from the grades 1 to 5 and spent about an hour and a half with the senior team. For most of the boys they will never forget this day as ‘Willie O’ took the training session and so the Wallabies Great showed the boys that the old school training is still effective as the newly introduced methods of training.
We look forward to another fine result this year as the boys will be running on to the field with an unbeaten record for the last year. Just to remind the boys the Principal has vowed as a cancellations price for remaining unbeaten there will be a team tour to either New Zealand or Australia at the end of the season.
However the season will be tough as Tupou High School proved it to be by winning the Rugby League Season. Tupou High School will also try again this season because of their Silver Jubilee this year.
The boys however will not give up and I am sure with the help of the Ex-Students this year, this will be another year of triumphant and glory for the boys in blue.
