The first half was an exciting game for the supporters as both teams gave their all, although, it must be said that the majority of the play was in our half of the field. It soon became apparent that the visitors had a couple of games under their belt whilst we were struggling to find a rhythym to our first game.
Unfortunately one of our players was sent to the sin-bin and they scored from the penalty, and five minutes from half-time our defence was finally breached .
Half – time and down 0 – 8
The second half began and, they struck immediately 0-13
From the re-start we charged down-field and our winger looked certain to score but a flying-tackle forced him into touch with their player, ( I am pleased to say ) snatching the ball from the hands of our winger and taking a quick throw-in but he forgot to warn his teamates and we capitalized on their confusion and a few quick passes saw Cartwright crossing the line with Rooney converting
score 7 – 13
Unfortunately poor tackling saw them score two tries making the score 7 – 25
BUT this team does not surrender and an interception saw Todger run in to score
12 – 25
Poor tackling allowed them to score another try.
final score :12 – 32 Scorers :- Tries Cartwright / Todger / Conv Rooney
Hard Luck Lads! The final score does not show the efforts you made !! You will play worse than this and win !!
