Taibach 12 Porthcawl Under 15s 40

Away today with 13 players we are still struggling with injuries and luckily the weather held off for boys to play. 

For some reason we started slow again and stood off the rucks and standing deep we didn’t take control of the game and ended the half only 2 points up at 10 v 12.

Dex scoring a good try after some quick ball and Mack crossing once we started moving the ball. In both attack and in defence we were slow off the line in the first half which kept taibach in the game.

Second half the forwards hit a few more rucks creating quick ball, with a lovely move with Sam coming on an angle and scoring under the post.

We started to show signs of playing our game quick ball and drawing and giving the ball. Joe took the ball up well with some lovely runs. Fin looking comfortable at 15 with lots of runs and defensively strong, Lex tackled everything that came his way. Beau had to dig the ball out of too many rucks where we need to get the ball back quicker and once he had quick ball he got back line moving with Dewi standing a little flatter in the second half allowing Mack and Sam to run the midfield. Lovely move with Dewi chipping over the top for Mack to score only for opposition to heap his shirt whichh resulted in penalty try. 

Forwards, Max, Ben and Evs got a few runs and created quicker ball and Ashton and Dex having to get around the field to hit the rucks. Piers scored a good driving line out with some powerful runs.

Overall it was a game of two halves 1st half was hard to watch, where we struggled to clear the rucks and get quick ball which improved in second half and so did the rugby.

Man of the match was Dex hitting the rucks and first up tackles and driving the forwards. Kenfig home next week, let’s hope we get some of the injured back for next week.

Tries dex, Sam, Mack 2, Piers and penalty try
