Awaydays are not always the best..

St Edwards Old Boys 72-3 Prenton 3s (Ouch!)

The Result says it all, Prenton 3s played away against the unbeaten leaders of the division, & judging by the amount of players wearing different rugby training tops prior to the game they were even more strengthened by players returning home from University as it was ½ term. So St Ed’s had just the 9 subs & Prenton had 3, Azza who had not played before, Roy Triggs Jnr who took ill on the morning of the game & me Paul Cotty the 3rd team stand in Captain. St Ed’s were younger fitter & better, they scored some very well worked tries & have got to be the favourites to win this league & gain promotion. Cannot fault the Prenton team, we played to the end on one complained & everyone just did the best they could. Our defence always stood up to 2/3 phases of attack but after that we just did not have the speed or fitness of our younger opponents who dragged us around the pitch & played from touch line to touch line. We made them work for the their ties with most being scored out wide but it made little difference as the kicker didn’t miss much either!

The St Ed’s boys were very complement about our performance in the bar after the game but did say that was that was the strongest team they have put out all season & the best they have played, so will also got them on a good week as well. Looking forward that was the 3s hardest game of the season out the way & we now have a good run of winnable games up to xmas starting with Mossley Hill at home this week. With same group of players who have been playing for the 3s this season & the same attitude we can now get back to winning ways!
