Still three all, but there’s time to score!

On to the ball now – one try more!

Taking your passes on the run

That’s the way that the game is won!

 

Gather your passes on the run;

That’s the way the game is won.

Sweeping and swerving and swinging along

Who’d be a passenger? Fifteen strong!

School! School! School!

And the rest on the run!

 

Ten minutes only – less than ten!

Tackle your man low – mark your men!

Down to it, forwards – on the run

That’s the way the game is won!

 

Gather your passes on the run;

That’s the way the game is won.

Sweeping and swerving and swinging along

Who’d be a passenger? Fifteen strong!

School! School! School!

And the rest on the run!

 

Heel it out – good work and away!

Out to the wing now – that’s the play!

Left and right it goes with a spin

Over the long drawn line – he’s in!

 

Gather your passes on the run;

That’s the way the game is won.

Sweeping and swerving and swinging along

Who’d be a passenger? Fifteen strong!

School! School! School!

And the rest on the run!
