A very dull and miserable Sunday morning brought our eagerly awaited visitors to Barracks Lane. Llanishen RFC contacted us a few weeks ago as they are attending a festival in London at the end of the month. As their rules are slightly different across the water, they were looking for some practice and pointers in the English rules which they hoped we could help them with. Unfortunately for us, there wasn’t a great deal we could teach them and in fact they taught us a few lessons in rucking and keeping the ball moving quickly.
Some fantastic rugby was on show from both teams and lots of post match fun was had in the clubhouse afterwards. Llanishen have very kindly invited us to visit them next season and we are hoping to take all of our junior section and make a real good day of it!
Despite our first defeat and a few battered ego’s, there really is a lot to take from the game, all of which we will be working on in training over the next few weeks.
Well done to all under 9’s, a very tough, physical game which you dealt with brilliantly!
