The Llandaff North U7 Hornets welcomed Clwb Rugbi to Hailey Park on Sunday 29th September, and with the weather yet again offering great conditions everyone was excited for a morning of exciting rugby.
Playing for the U7’s were Callum Pearce, Kamarnii Sexton, Cameron Palladino-Nessbert, Abby-Rose Hembury, Elijah Marshall and Max Wilson.
Game 1 – Captain for the first game was Callum and he led the team well in what was a tight and low scoring game. Only Abby-Rose crossed the line for the Hornets and despite some great running and tagging by Cameron and Callum the game finished at Hornets 1 – Clwb Rugbi 2.
Game 2 – Abby-Rose took over the captaincy for this game and lead by example. This time we decided we were going to show our try scoring ability with Callum, Kamarnii and Elijah all crossing the line for one try a piece. We also showed a great defensive effort with Abby-Rose and Max tagging effectively and the two evenly matched sides finished the game out at Hornets 3 – Clwb Rugbi 3.
Game 3 – An extremely quick turn-around saw Abby-Rose maintain the captaincy for this final game. We kept up our try scoring form, this time Max, Elijah and Kamarnii all scoring one try each for the team. Unfortunately Clwb Rugbi saved their pacey runners for last and despite a great defensive effort the game finished Hornets 3 – Clwb Rugbi 6.
Special mention goes to Elijah Marshall and Max Wilson on their first game, made extra special as both managed to get their names on the score board against some tough opposition.
Big thank you to all the support that was shown by friends and family.
