U13/14 NLD Shield - Nottingham Boots Corsairs
A full side for the first time this season!
We were a little nervous with 5 minutes to go before kick-off but despite this being our furthest away match we managed to get a full 15 out. For some reason the Satnavs were taking people the not so scenic route through Nottingham to the match venue in Bingham. This meant that we could provide proper opposition to Nottingham. There was excellent commitment and tackling. This stopped 3 tries for Nottingham, causing them to knock-on over the line. Unfortunately, we could not keep them out forever, eventually leaking 4 tries. One of our tries came about after some great interplay, leading to Jake forcing himself over. Jake also converted two of our tries. Matty was, well Matty, making ground, making tackling, scoring two tries and one conversion. He led the side well and the discipline within the whole side was good. Other players to mention in despatches were Robin, Nathan and Cam for great tackling. Lastly, we have one more thing to be amazed about - we found a club with a smaller scrum-half than our own Will Smith!
We'd like to thank Nottingham for hosting the game and being very welcoming and also the referee for turning out on his "day off" and contributing to a good game.
