Merthyr u16 v Llandaff North u16 28.09.14

By Alan John
As with last week, this was an exciting game of running rugby with both teams giving their all! But we were able to finish off the moves!
Ten minutes into the game we gave them a try as, whilst attacking, we spilled the ball and allowed them a 50 metre run-in.
BUT, that was our ONLY generosity!  The team forced play back up field and, at a 5yd.tap-penalty Evan was  the quickest thinker and dived over the line.–Either side of half-time Josh scored  via his usual 50 yd charges. After Harry scored , the opponents, (after many penalties)
finally scored again, followed by an excellent touchline conversion, BUT we were not to be denied with Joe & Sean scoring.
HIGHLIGHTS?  Tom Davies’ perfect delayed pass to Zack which almost resulted in a try —Evan’s quick thinking and “sniping” at the  scrums —
Joe catching the ball from their drop-out and charging through three players during his  50yd run in to score — The overall catching of the high ball
especially in the first half when we were facing a strong sun.was excellent — Line-out slight improvement but more work. Scrum ?? ( as uncontested)
Merthyr u16 -v- Llandaff North u16  Score :- 14 pts. to 41 pts. Scorers :- Tries Josh (3) / Evan / Harry / Joe / Sean / Conv. Nathan (3)
