U11A beat Dollar in the rain!

Some super rugby played!

We probably played our best game today against a well drilled and speedy Dollar side.  Their tackling in the middle of the park was excellent and so we had to look to spread the ball wide.  Luca and James scored tries in the corners thanks to some great ball-winning from Glen and Hugo in particular.  Cody looked to feed the backs at every opportunity and our handling was surprisingly sharp today given the wet conditions.  Ollie worked hard in defence and looked to steal the ball at the break down with an excellent body position.  We recycled the ball well, putting through the phases and it was great to see us look to time the pass better to eliminate the defence.  After half time, Murray and Matthew came on to bring some freshness to the game as conditions were heavy under foot and there were some tired bodies out there.  Even though we always had the lead, Dollar kept at it and had some fliers on the wings; their off-loading out of the tackle was also excellent.  Had it not been for Rory’s outstanding tackling, the home side would have scored more but we came out 6-3 winners in the end.  Although it was a great team performance, Albie carried the ball well and worked his socks off for 30 minutes and receives the man of the match award on this occasion.
