Lynski Dravitski: September 19th Highlights - Rugby

These highlights, filmed by Riley M. from Room One are of the Lynski-Dravitski Shield Challenge game between Auroa Primary School and St Josephs Opunake, which took place on Friday 19th September, at St Josephs.  The shield is contested each year between Auroa and St Josephs.   Auroa were able to win the shield for the first time in 2013 and were looking to defend it for the first time.  Following clear wins in Soccer (12-0) and a convincing win in Netball, the Rugby team was looking for a clean sweep.  Having only lost this season to St Josephs (Hawera), who we play in the finals of the Taranaki Trophy at Yarrows Stadium this Thursday, Auroa was looking for a solid display.   The game in the early stages was dominated by St Josephs who at one time took a twenty point lead.

This video shows the last parts of the second half as Auroa begun to swing control of the game back to themselves. Its our first game of 2014 filmed with different equipment. We are thinking critically about such an exciting game (which ended in a 36-36 draw) and what we could do differently with the filming. Would a tripod have helped? Is it better than when we used an ipad but we couldn't zoom in on the action? What rules would we have for the camera person in future that would help the recording? Riley wasn't expecting to be given the job, circumstances meant it was thrust into his hands, and he filmed the action at St Josephs School, Opunake, on Friday 19th September 2014.
