Under 15s Match Report

Tondu 17 Porthcawl 15

1st game back for a month and it was an action packed one.
We started really strong and we’re camped in their half for the first 20 min playing the territory game and when we had quick ball we moved the ball out the backs and looked in control and I was just waiting for us to run the balls in. Three times we broke the line and Tondu got a hand in and disrupted our play and luckily got away without getting a yellow card in my view. Mack then put us ahead when the ball went loose and Mack then dribbled the ball and scored and quickly followed up with a penalty. Tondu then upped their game and we started to loose the ruck area one up runners and too many standing off waiting for someone else to secure the ball. Tondu fed off our mistakes and started the come back where we had players out wide but went into contact rather than moving the ball first.
Second half same again we lost countless rucks and we kept on having one up runners which Tondu quickly turned us over. Defensively we were very good Max F and dec putting in some great hits early on their big runners and that shook the, Lex disrupting their ball and Finnian making a great low tackle text book round the ankles. All round everyone tackled well but we need to follow it up with hitting the rucks. Monti congratulations on your first game and he showed up well along with the rest of our front row who scrummaged well all day. The game was there to win today and we need to step up our game in the ruck area and move the ball wide when it’s quick ball and get our wings joe and Caeron into the game who looked dangerous with the ball. It was Hard picking man of the match today but it goes to Fin DA every time he was put under pressure he ran the ball back beating defenders or being our last line of defence and nothing got through today and I’m sure lot more to come Fin DA. Next week we are home to Cowbridge let’s build from today and put it down to being rusty.

Tries Dex, Mack, one conversion and penalty Mack
