Under 11C Rugby v Fettes
The boys were ready for the challenge of facing one of their closest rivals. For some of our
boys this was their first full contact match of the season and they relished the opportunity to
make as many tackles as they could.
Paddy and Kit held their wing positions well, thereby providing the wide option which was to prove so useful. The rest of the team took charge early on and were able to make some great ground-gaining runs which eventually saw Kit, Freddie and George cross the try line fairly quick succession.
Not to be out done, Fettes responded with some strong attacks and scored a couple of tries to stay in touch. Zac, Freddie and Alexander continued to press forward with some incisive straight runs and they contributed to the scoring in the second half. The whole team tackled well and forced a few knock-ons that allowed them to maintain the advantage.
The boys eventually won 8-5 with Alexander named the man of the match for his determination in attack and robust defence.
Under 11D Rugby v Fettes
The boys took part in a six-a-side match that provided a great opportunity to put into practice what that have been working on in training: appropriate positioning and running forwards rather than sideways. They implemented these tasks really well and took the game to opposition from the first whistle to the last. The scored freely in the first half but didn’t match the strength of their attacks with tackling to back it up and as a result Fettes scored freely too.
In the second half they improved their tackling and were able to stay narrowly ahead, eventually coming out as 7-5 winners.
Well done to all the boys for an outstanding and positive effort.
