Our game today was called off due to a soggy pitch however the Coaches managed to secure the Sports hall at Caerphilly Leisure Center for a good training session.
11 players turned out and all of them were carrying a few extra pounds as a result of all the mince pies and chocolate they had eaten over Christmas. Sian Jonathan and Ceri soon managed to blow a few of the cobwebs away with some exciting drills.
As it was only a training session i didn't make a note of all the tries score during the final practice game but it was fair to say that everybody on the pitch worked really hard and tried to implement the skills they had just been taught. There was some good running and defending in the narrow space.
Special mention today goes to man of the match Ryan Combes who scored two lovely tries by exploiting the gaps on the outside. Well done Ryan keep up the good work.
I overheard a number of the players making their New Year resolutions, for example; to pass behind them, not to over run the ball carrier and to make loads of try saving tags. We shall see if they stick to it when we play Rhiwbina next week weather permitting. The boys are well up for the game and are looking to get revenge in this return leg by scoring more tries than Rhiw.
