Mansfield Rugby Club

U9s v Tupton

by Kaylie Stuart

Report by Trev Cooke

The last time we played Tupton we loaned them 3 players and narrowly won 4 : 3 at home.

We had to loan out 2 players once again, for them to honour the fixture, (but not Edger!!)

The refereeing was shared between their coach and me, two sessions each. It was a hard fought affair, their ref having to have words with his own players about high tackles and a clash of heads.

The pre-match instruction was, “Tackle early when they have the ball and support our player when we go forward”.

No one disappointed, all players played their part and we won all 4 sessions:-

3 : 0, 2 : 0, 2 : 0 and 1 : 0.   Total, 8 tries to 0.

Try scorers were:- Warwick x 3, Coleman x 2, Wigley x 2,  Bonnar.

Man of the Match was Will Warwick, not just for the 3 tries he scored, but his tackling and “no step backwards attitude”.

We are really starting to work as a team now......and doesn’t it show.

Well done.

Coaching next week and then RAF Cranwell Tour on the 27th, 28th and 29th April.
