Paviors 10 nil v newark, followed by 5 nil v Bridgford, 15 nil v mellish, walkover Mansfield, and then through as group winners to county cup final.. unfortunately we hadnt played for 90 mins in the cold and lost to a well drilled Nottingham in the final
The first game was a close struggle with Newark and we scored one forward try at the fringe (Jake) and then a marvellous winger try from Ed, down the touch line... Newark penned Pavs back for a large portion of the game but the defence held out and the tackling was great.
The second game was Bridgford a side who beat us last year and their scrummage was a big unit and well drilled. The game was mostly in our half for five mins then it changed and we penned them back either side of half time. Luke crashing over fron midfield for a score...
The third game was against Mellish who have much improved from last year, they fought well but we went over for a try on the wing by Fraser and another two tries followed a really good game to watch.
the most pleasing thing was the ball moving to the wings and the tackling was super, forwards committed to rucks and mauls and the ball was secured.
Mansfield didnt turn up so we won that by default!
The final was some 90 mins later and we went off the boil, Nottingham were well drilled and we lost by four tries to nil, I cant help but think things might have been different if we had played an hour earlier..
But County cup runners up is a great start to the season...
Five players played in a Ba ba's team with Keyworth who won 2 lost 2, again a great perfromance by all the boys and girls in that team...
