Having lost the last 3 matches in a row, it was important that we worked hard as a team and looked to use the pace we’ve got at this age-group. Seb and Kyan came in to give us this and Matthew was employed to give us some tough tackling and positive energy that we had perhaps lacked before.
The boys played with a terrific attitude today and supported each other well. There was some great tackling and ball winning at the breakdown from Ollie, Hugo and Cody and Rory ran the show in the first half with his forward running and off loading to the centres.
It wasn’t perfect and we missed some tackles and other opportunities to offload the ball before the tackle but we didn’t let it get to us and kept our heads up. In the end we ran out winners by 10-6 with Seb putting in a man of the match performance by scoring 4 good tries from the wing.
It was great to see the hands working hard to get the ball out wide, especially from Matthew who just made the back line come into play by looking to get the ball out as soon as possible. Well done to him and Seb for stepping up today from the B team and showing they have much to offer but to all the boys, huge congratulations for coming back from what has been a difficult few weeks on the pitch.
Thank you to Ardvreck for travelling south to see us and for competing well and making it a terrific game to watch. We look forward to seeing you again after half term at our Sevens competition on Saturday 3rd November.
