On the day of the Rippa Rugby World Cup, Maungatapu marched onto the field, the day was sunny with streaks of clouds, it was at Paengaroa. Maungatapu had discussed their tactics, and were ready for their games. The whistle blew, the first game had started! Wind stung their cheeks as they leapt to the ball. They played 5 games. They were up against Paengaroa first , and played other schools including Westbrook and Mount Maunganui Primary.
