We came under immediate and intense pressure as Llantwit Major launched attack after attack with our
defence holding out and some good clearance kicks from our 22 (Jay (B) ) but, eventually poor tackling saw them break through to score. We then went on the attack and battered away at their line but an interception saw them run 80 metres to score !! Poor tackling saw another score followed by more pressure in their 22 but ONE MISTAKE and another 80 metre run. !!!
Half time and we were down Nil to 24 pts.
As I have said before , this team does NOT give up and , from the kick-off we gathered a loose ball and Jack ran through their defence to score with Dylan adding the conversion.
Unfortunately they had the last word as whilst we lauched a series of attacks a kick out of defence saw us give away a penalty and ” TURNED OUR BACKS ” !!!! ” Tap-penalty ” — Dive over to score !! Be AWARE lads !!!
Whilst the final score of 7 – 29 gives the impression that they were the better team, I must say that our Pack was superiior with special mention for Ryan and Adam ( Sam in 2nd half ) and ???? who played his first game for 4 years !! But their Backs had that little extra “punch” through midfield. ( I think that they were in their “2nd year” and we will beat them next year !!!
Final Score: Llandaff North Youth 7-29 Llantwit Major Youth
Try Jack / Conv Dylan
Hard luck lads KEEP ON ROCKING !!!!
