Under 16s Win Local Derby

What a wonderful display of running rugby from the boys today,  a complete game of rugby. We have struggled of late in the ruck area, but today we didn’t lose one as we had more than two players in the rucks.  The forwards put in a great shift and it was nice seeing the backs getting into the rucks to ensure we maintained possession and ball placement much better so Lex  didn’t have to dig for the ball.
Critical to our game is quick ruck ball and we had plenty today, this is all down to the forwards where all 8 were outstanding, creating quick ball and it allowed us to run in some great tries. First of all our scrums and lineouts were great, giving Lex a great platform and I will say that was a great display from the backs who controlled the game especially with Piers coming back into the team for his first game and he got on the score sheet and should have had a hat trick today. Defence was outstanding all the boys putting in a shift and both steff and FDA getting back to ground the ball on our try line to save a sure try. You seen some of our set moves coming off today,  the boys moan about running through them in training but it’s important we get the angles right and it paid off today.
Play of the match for me where we went all the way to the left with Piers being tackled in the corner to quickly recycle the ball with ball going back right with each player drawing and giving which included max and dex for Oscar to score in the corner.
We pride ourselves on our passing game and the forwards entering the line and giving the pass into space for a backs to  hit the line hard is so pleasing to watch.
It’s So hard to pick man of the match today as every player was outstanding,  but we give the MOM to Monty who scrummaged really well and got a few runs and hit lots of rucks.  As we said we need to keep on building from this game as we have Taibach away next week.
