Father’s Day treat!
Team work makes the dream work!!!!
Today saw Cobras away for another week on Father's day with lots of Dads eagerly awaiting some spectacular rugby!
They didn’t have to wait long!!!
With Wigan short Charlotte offered to play for them first leaving the “organisation” to anyone who’d take it suprisingly Tom stepped in with no issues, must be a family trait ??
The team did share the opposition play and did a great sporting job well done all of you!!
Today saw what could only be described as the best team performance we have ever seen! Some amazing tackling from early on saw spring view held out on the try line 6 times in the first half allowing our attack to dominate during their sets and for some fabulous passing and support play with great runs to get some try’s on the board. Mason Jones pounded that ground to get In as did charlie 2 breakfasts!
Some more amazing infield work and some crushing team tackles kept springview well out of the game allowing some great passes to continue . Euan steamed the length of the pitch just like his family mile only 24 hrs earlier!! Followed by a cracking run from George linking with Aaron creating an amazing opportunity Ben then romped home with a great taken pass and side step.
A great half time team talk and some water must have spurred the team on further as they kept grinding this game out the spring view team kept coming they kept attacking that line but not once did they get over. Such an achievement with all players communicating and pulling together to close the gaps. John and Will had some weetabix this morning because nothing was coming through them!!!!!
A short way from time a little move from harvey Parker saw him make a run with a little dummy and pass letting Charlotte run to offload and create space for Tom to get a lovely kick in but unfortunately we didn’t quite get on the end. It will come we are sure!!!
Defensively and supportively in attack the team were never alone this is what we are most proud of!!! even at the last minute when springview lost the ball and Dec and Charlotte slammed hands on it over the line to score a cheeky try together!!
Dec though could not have done more for Dad AL today he played out of his skin! If it move he tackled it! He went in force with team mates and went in as marker seeking the tackle before attack new what they were doing putting them under pressure, he made great attacking line links too and all round excellent connections a very well deserved star player today !!!
This left the tough decision of defensive star but with some great defensive work Will picked this up this week.
What an amazing day for everyone !! We are all so proud of you well done !!!
Special mention their coach also thanks you for lending players and being such a good team to play with and ref against!
