Rugby World Cup

We have really enjoyed the Rugby World Cup. 
We have supported lots of different teams throughout the competition. We had a day where we dressed in the colours of the different teams to show our support.
Can you guess what teams we are supporting?
We were lucky that some people in our class are from different countries with teams in the Rugby World Cup. Lita got her Fijian flag signed by some of the Fijian players.
On the last day of school every class chose a team to dress up as. Room 14 is supporting Georgia. We are wearing red and white and have painted our faces.
Here is some of our writing about the Rugby World Cup.

I am supporting the France rugby team. I like their top that they wear. They are good at passing the ball to each other. I am helping and supporting the French team by wearing the colours that are on their country flag. I also painted my face blue. I think that the Rugby World Cup is exciting. When New Zealand played France I was cheering for both teams. The score was 37-17 and the All Blacks won.

I am supporting Australia because my cousin is from Australia. I like the team. They do nice passes to their players. I have yellow on. The game that I like is Samoa vs South Africa. The highlights is what my Mum always likes to watch.

I am supporting Fiji and Ireland because I think they are a good team and because I want to support someone different for a change. I am supporting them by wearing their team colours on my shirt and track pants. One of my favourite games was Fiji vs Wales. It was kind of sad because Wales got 66 points and Fiji got 0.

I am supporting Wales because I am wearing red and white and also a daffodil. I wanted Wales to win their game. I am wearing red face paint to support Wales too. I love them getting lots of tries in the Rugby World Cup. I also like how they kick the ball up high.

I am supporting Georgia because they speak another language. I think the Georgian Rugby Team are good players. I am wearing red and white for the Georgian Rugby team. I liked the game when Georgia played against Romania. It was a great game. Georgia won that game. The score was Georgia 25 and Romania 9.
By Lita

I am supporting England because my Dad is from England. I hope England wins the Rugby World Cup. My favourite game was New Zealand vs France. It was a tough game for them. I really like how France was getting into it. NZ was great at passing the ball.

I think New Zealand is going to win the Rugby World Cup because they are a good team. I am wearing black for New Zealand. I liked watching New Zealand vs Canada. It was a good game. New Zealand is my favourite team in the Rugby World Cup.

I am supporting Ireland. It’s a team that speak a different language and they also speak English. I like how they speak.

I am supporting Fiji because I was born in Fiji and I lived there for 6 years. Also my whole family was born in Fiji. I am wearing white and black to support Fiji because it is in their uniform. I enjoyed watching the Rugby World Cup when Fiji played Namibia because Fiji won that game 66-0.

I am supporting Argentina because Anna lived in Argentina. I’m doing this by wearing black and acting like a puma because their team is called Los Pumas. The other team I am supporting is the All Blacks because they are the New Zealand team. I’ve enjoyed the RWC but my favourite game was New Zealand vs Canada because the All Blacks won. The score was 79-15. I also like watching people getting tries. I like seeing all of the flags too.
By Lucy

I am supporting the All Blacks because they are the top of Pool A. I think they are going to win the Rugby World Cup and I am wearing black to support them. I liked watching the game All Blacks vs France. I was supporting the All Blacks because I knew they were going to win.

I am supporting Ireland because me and my Mum like the Irish team. I am supporting Ireland by wearing green pants and a green hair tie. Yesterday I even drew the emblem of the Ireland team. Then I cut it out with scissors and stuck it on my shirt with cellotape. I thought it was cool when South Africa beat Wales. I also like it when Tonga beat France. I thought France would win but they didn’t. I think they were too tired. I like the tries. I wonder who will win the Webb Ellis Trophy?
By Rebecca

I am supporting Tonga because it is a good team to cheer for and because they do good things to help their team. When they play I cheer for them. I cheer for New Zealand because it is the place I was born in. The team is called the All Blacks. I like the whole team but the best All Black players I like are Richie Macaw, Dan Carter and Sonny Bill Williams. Richie Macaw is good at getting tries and Dan Carter is good at kicking the ball. Sonny Bill Williams is good at kicking and getting tries. What I like about the World Cup is watching the team players getting tries.
By Tremaine

I’m supporting NZ, Fiji, Ireland and Italy. I am supporting Fiji because that’s where I was born. Their haka always makes me laugh. I like the Rugby World Cup because all the countries are playing in the finals. All the teams are wanting to win the Webb Ellis Trophy.
By Jiuta

My favourite team that I am supporting is NZ because I am wearing black. They are my favourite team in the Rugby World Cup.

I am supporting Fiji and South Africa because they are both great teams. They also wear bright colours. They both have good passers and kickers. South Africa always gets tries and goals. I am wearing green nail polish for South Africa.  I am also wearing a white t.shirt and a blue jacket for Fiji. I like watching teams get tries. I like watching the ball go over the post because it looks like it’s going into the crowd.
