Llandudno 35 Rhyl 40
Llandudno U10’s learn value of defence the hard way
Llandudno u10’s played their first games of 2013 with a double fixture at home v Rhyl on Sunday 13th January. Both games were hugely enjoyable to watch with both teams putting in some excellent passing, running and rucking to score some great tries. The difference between the two sides was all about defence with Llandudno failing to come up in a line and too many players missing 1 on 1 tackles. It is also worth noting what a good spirit both games were played in with players from both sides combining aggression and respect in a way that sets rugby apart from most other sports.
Llandudno lost the 1st game 35 – 40, despite the efforts of Man of the match Adam Bezetoute who was supported by Jack McGilp and Aaron Macleod. Tries were by Ethan Thomas (2) Adam Bezetoute (2) and Jamie Jeffery. The second game was even more agonising with Llandudno going down by a single point 28-29 with Gus Crowe returning to his usually excellent form with a well deserved Man of the match award and 2 tries, Adam getting the other 2. Llandudno also kicked very well with Jamie landing 7 of 7 kicks and callum hold landing 2 of 2. However the poor defence meant it wasn’t enough.
