Ethan's First Harlequins Rugby Match


A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to be invited to watch a Harlequins Rugby match!  As you know, Ethan went to the Harlequins Rugby camp over the summer and absolutely loved it, and since then he has been desperate to go and watch a full match.

So on December 15th Ethan finally got the chance to see his favourite rugby team play a full game!  They were playing against Benetton at The Stoop on what was unfortunately a very cold and very, very rainy day!

It didn't dampen Ethan's spirits though, he was so excited to watch the match and so he was bundled up warm and ready to cheer.  They had a quick walk around The Stoop to see what was on offer (there are plenty of food and drink choices) then went to their seats to watch the match.  They were sitting in the south stand behind the posts, the seats had a great view and were perfect as they were under cover and protected them from the torrential rain!

Ethan was very happy with a hot chocolate and his new Harlequins scarf to keep him warm while he cheered for his team (he had his Harlequins top on, but it couldn't be seen under all of his layers, so the scarf was essential!)  He really wanted to keep the cup from the hot chocolate too (ha ha!) but mostly he loved watching the game and cheering along with the crowd to all the new chants that he learned!  "Come on you Quins!"

The Harlequins scored an early try which was very exciting for Ethan and great for his first game as his team were leading.  He really enjoyed when the chanting and songs got going and started participating in them quite quickly.  There was an excellent interception try which got everyone on their feet and the atmosphere was very good.  They were leading at half time and Ethan was really enjoying himself.  

They got settled in for the second half and it was a tense time with Benetton coming back into the game, but Harlequins managed to hold out for the win!  Ethan must be a good luck charm for the Harlequins as they won the match 20-9 and he was thrilled!
