Cold Frosty Morning
Joint Venture proves fruitful
A cold late November morning and the 9's are off to North Yorkshire to visit Ripon.
It was a short warmup next to the football pitches whilst the footballers cleared and the pitches were laid out for us, time to get prepared and ensure the team was ready.
With Ripon having such a large squad to call on they had split into three teams and ourselves and Moortown moved round the pitches to play. Each game we got three loan players from Ripon to compliment our team.
Everyone worked hard to get the right position on the pitch, and we saw some good passing between players to make space and put people in position to get the tries. Along with committed ball carrying into tackles time and time again.
The first two games were close with Ripon taking the edge in them. The final game just played to an overall team strength with the Bramley combined team getting the Win.
Once again the day was set with the RFU core values from all involved - Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship
It was topped off with tries for Bronte and Abby, built on the work that Eliza, Summer and Belle put in and of course the 9 loan players from Ripon we had through out the day.
This team never makes it easy on the coaches to award the player of the day as they all put so much in , this week the fierce determination shown by Bronte secured it for her.
It is a credit to them how well they push one another to develop and look to grow as a team week by week.
