The schools then undertake a 'nations parade' where they complete a lap of the pitches whilst performing the various war dances, hakas and songs of their chosen nation.
That is all followed by a series of inter-school Tag rugby games where the children get to show off their rugby skills. All games are played in line with the IRFU's Long Term Player Development strategy, therefore semi-finals and finals are not played - each school simply plays a series of games.
Connacht Rugby would like to extend sincere gratitude to all the children who enthusiastically took part and to the teachers for their incredible efforts in both coaching the children and getting them prepared for the nations parade.
The Connacht Branch would also like to thank IT Sligo, Buccaneers RFC and Corinthians RFC for the generous use of their facilities.
If your school is interested in taking part in next year's Extravaganzas, they should register their interest with Lyndon Jones at email@example.com.
