The game started with a bang as a 15 metre scrum saw Jay dodge one player to pass to Josh who dived over. This superb opening was spoiled when Jay had to leave the field due to injury. Evan took over at 9 and good passing was spoiled with a spilt ball allowing them to score a try from far out. BUT THIS TEAM DOES NOT GIVE UP!
We struck back immediately with the Pack winning good ball to send Tom S diving over the line. They scored another runaway try but good passing along the backs saw Josh score.
Half time score 15 – 14
The second half also started with a bang! Callum ran 30 metres to score and 5 mins later he again burst through with Marley finishing off the move with a 5 metre sprint. We then made the mistake of easing-up and the opposition scored 2 tries and could have pulled ahead if the conversion in front of the posts had gone over. Within a minute we had struck again with another 30 metre run by Callum making the game safe.
Special mention for the whole Pack led admirably by Sean aided by Adam, Marley, Dillon, Tom D and Tom C in backs (The latter being so unlucky within a metre of the line — If his arms had been a little longer he would have scored!)
WELL PLAYED LADS! They thought that they had all the ‘Stars’ But you were the better team!
