Children's touch

Kapanui Team Williams plays Paraparaumu Beach School in the Kapiti Junior Touch competition in December 2008. In this competition each team of six was required to have at least two girls on the field. A try by a boy was worth one point, while a try by a girl was worth two. Touch has become a popular game in New Zealand for people of all ages and both sexes.
