The good run had to end sometime but it was a pity that this game was against our old Nemesis !!!
Unfortunately this game was lost in the first 15 minutes when they ran in 3 unconverted tries. BUT they did not do any work in scoring WE GAVE THEM THE TRIES!!! Firstly we began passing in our own 22 rather than clearing to touch and lost the ball. Secondly, after 10 mins of pressure one missed tackle saw a 50 metre run-in. Finally, a most embarrassing score saw one player evade by virtually our whole team in a 70 metre run — half of which was ACROSS the field with our “flapping our hands” as he passed!
Despite my comments, the team did not play poorly it was more that they jumped upon our mistakes. The 2 tries conceded in second half were also long distance scores.
HIGHLIGHTS :- A good take at a line-out saw Jake coming at an angle to score / Another line-out saw Josh charging through with Adam finishing off with a 5 metre burst / Pack pressure saw us steal the ball with Jay(B) reverse pass to Josh to crash through the defence.
Final Score – Llandaff North u16 19-34 Llanishen u16
Tries Jake/Adam/Josh — Conv Dylan / Nathan
HARD LUCK LADS — The score does not show the fight and effort that you put into this game — You only have to Cut out the mistakes !!
KEEP ON ROCKING !!!! ONWARDS AND UPWARDS !!
