Under 16s through to Semi-Finals

Bridgend Sports 7  Porthcawl 12
District D - Junior Cup Competition

Nice to see the boys back playing rugby again after all bad weather and we had a tough one, away to sports in the cup.

We started off well collecting the KO and forward taking ball forward then ball came out with Dewi putting Mack away on a short ball to run half the pitch a bit of a surprise for him as he expected to start on the bench after braking his hand.

Dominated the first half but we were rusty and getting detached from the support runners or throwing out passes when we either needed to kick or run hard. We looked comfortable and then scored a great try,  forwards and backs interlinking well for Max Flan to score in the corner. We had some good runs with Joe, Gruff, Dex and Max Flan making ground but we were too detached with the ruckers to creat quick ball.

Second half it looked like we had through tee had won the game as our defence was static and we kept on making mistakes which sports capitalised and made it 7 v 12. To be fair even with your mistakes our defence and effort was excellent. Despite the yellow cards we stood firm where penalties weee going against us but we hung on well done boys. Few moments in the game that stood out on top of the tries. cae with two bone crunching tackles, Max Flan and Dex who tackled and jackled  all day. But man of the match goes to Evs he made so many tackles one where he sprinted accross the field and smashed the runner and worked his socks off.

Let’s get boys back training ahead of next cup game.
