Report:- “Lost In Translation”
So there we were, all raring to go against Patchell’s boys including their star winger, the fantastically named Theo Cabango. We asked for aggression and a statement and we got it.
Sam was back as captain and he led a dominant performance where our pack smashed up the middle, phase after phase. We played to our strengths and some strength it was. Josh Hancock scored on his 2nd game for the team and we took the lead.
CRICC’s reply was typically swift. At every chance they try to swing to the left wing where Theo lurks. We cut him down with our double team tackling but he creates panic and stretches defences and it allowed 2 of his buddies to score. Theo blitzed us then to make it 19-5 at the break.
The ref dished out a yellow card for Archie in the second half, his interpretation of the laws ‘Lost in Translation’; our English speakers and the those with Welsh tongue seemingly poles apart.
We came back commendably with 14 men. Morgan scored when we were a man down, with Chris Thompson converting the try on his debut. Theo then finished us off. He has amazing pace and illusiveness, but it shows Patchell’s boys as a little reliant; they looked a one man team at times whilst our boys enjoyed a dominant day without just reward.
We have no superstars like Theo, but instead are a proud ‘team’ in the making!
