Barbarians - Report
|Sandal||43||vs||24||Bradford & Bingley|
Bees throw it away but a good first run out
The Bees left themselves with too much to do in the second half after gifting possession three times in their own 22m for Sandal to then run the ball down the slope to score under the posts.
With the slope advantage in the second half then the Bees were confident that the game could be won. That plan went wrong when Bees kicked away possession and Sandal ran the ball back to score in the corner. With the match effectively lost then it remained for the Bees to sort out these mistakes and start playing some rugby. The forwards led the way and destroyed their opposite pack at every set piece. Every Sandal scrum went back at lightning speed resulting in two push over tries scored by Tom Cummins to give the Bees a loosing bonus point. The dominance in the scrum was not expected as Sandal were much the bigger pack and Ronnie would have been very proud.
It is hoped that Bees have used up their seasons entire quota of mistakes and with a number of players still to return then it is expected that next week will be much better. Besides scoring twice, Tom also found 3 players at late notice. Thanks to Aaron, Do mand Josh for turning out.
