Budding rugby stars from schools all over New Zealand have been ripping it up in regional Rippa Rugby qualifying tournaments and Waihi East School certainly did 'rise and shine' by winning the Thames Valley year 5/6 competition in Paeroa last Friday afternoon.

Rippa Rugby is a popular, safe, non-contact form of rugby aimed at primary school aged children where instead of tackling, players rip velcro-fastened tags off each other’s waists.

It's a game that boys and girls can get involved in and is growing in popularity.

The little 'rippas' from Waihi East were pretty chuffed with their effort and we'd like to share their home coming video with you. Congratulations!

Thanks for the video Robbie McGougan. You're a 'rippa' too!
