Great performance from a depleted squad today. The match report is a change and all from our head coach Nick in an unbiased view - much better than the normal rambles.

Great Team effort, ably adjudicated by Rocky
Ben kept the opposition guessing with some great positional kicking and continued to steel opposition ball.
Ross used the wide channels well to put Cats on the front foot
Toby was fearless in getting onto breakdowns to secure ball with some good runs when he got the chance.
Ephraim had his first full match as an Old Cat and put in some great tackles and came away with an assist and a try of his own
Charlie was imperious in the line out with some great support from his lifters Harry and Beau
But Man of the match goes to JJ who had an outstanding match, putting in tackles and cutting big inroads into the opposition with his runs making big inroads into the opposition.
Great to see Harrision back for his first game since for a while with some big tackles
