Acklam Hustlers
Middlesbrough A
Sat 7 Oct 15:00 - League Full time

A day to forget.......

STILL searching for that first win.

Hustlers hosted middlesbrough in an eagerly anticipated match & with both sides bringing large squads the scene was set for the 1st derby of the season.

From the kick off a strong Middlesbrough side took the game to Acklam and we simply didn't have any answers .
Missed tackles , poor communication & not playing to the whistle cost Ack dearly .

Our scrum held its own but too often the ball was given away cheaply & Mbro were happy to capitalise by shipping it out wide & scoring.

Half- time came , players changed & we went back to it.

Ack played better in the second half but were still exposed time & again by the better team but to our credit we kept plugging away 'til the end .

The final score of 80-14 was a fair reflection of the game with Hustler's bright spots being the competitive debut of Storm & Luke . The welcome return of Jake Murray & Mark Paine and the tries by G Weston & Ash Gibson . conversions well taken by Jake Murray .

Man of the Match goes to Bobby Marks one of the few players who kept going to the very end .
No DoD this week as all players could have taken it.

Next week we're away to Newtonians .
A full squad will be needed so please confirm your availability as soon as possible.
