Within the first few minutes we let ourselves down with poor tackling allowing them an easy score! However, this error caused us to break our lethargy and good work by the Pack saw Jordan score with con. by Joe.
The rest of the first half was “end to end play” but close to half-time we fell into old habits with, firstly turning our backs when they were awarded a penalty, allowing an easy score and then, following our strong attacks, they fell on a loose ball and kicked ahead with their quick players running after the ball and ours seemingly strolling!
Sorry boys but your lack of attention GIFTED them with 14 points!
Half time and we were 7 – 19 down.
The coaches must have had some strong words at half-time as we came out fighting!
A maul close to their line saw a clever reverse pass by Jay (B) sending Joe through to score.This was followed by a tap-penalty with Adam crashing through three players to score.
CHSOB were clearly rattled and lacking in confidence with our pack driving hard and being awarded a try
which I have given to The Pack as I have no idea who actually touched down!
Suddenly we were ahead 22 – 19 and seeming to be heading for a victory. (A few conversions would have helped)
BUT, somehow we managed to draw defeat from the jaws of victory as another kick and chase from their
half saw them score.
Hard luck lads. You did not deserve to lose this game but you must keep your concentration for the WHOLE GAME.
Final Score Score 22 – 24
Scorers :- Tries Jordan / Joe / Adam / “Pack” / Conv. Joe
ONWARDS AND UPWARDS! KEEP ON ROCKING!
