Walden ease through to 34-7 win against Newmarket

Structure provides control for Walden

Walden had to shuffle a number of players due to injuries which showed in the first quarter of the match as the team settled into the game and adapted to Newmarket’s style of play - aggressive, fast defence caused early problems for Walden but the key is to adapt and the lads did so to allow our pattern of play to flourish. Walden had scored in the fourth minute, Oisin in the corner with some fleet footwork, followed by a storming charge from Jack from 15 metres. Newmarket fought back as Walden relaxed too much to score their own converted try; a wake-up call for Walden. The lads responded well with a try from Fraser Murray.

Walden were now controlling the game with accurate and organised play, relentlessly running at the opposition through the forwards to draw in defenders and using our speed out wide. Changes were made at half time, Owen again very thoughtful and disciplined, Aidan looking powerful. Spike played the whole game at outside centre, a big change from hooker but he adapted very well and had a great match. Beau started to charge in the second half, finding space with support runs to really open up the Newmarket defence and cause significant problems. When they did win the ball they kicked, Harry was calm and brilliant at 15, returning with pace to gain advantage. Josh had a particularly good game, his work rate was immense.

Our set-piece creaked during this game, work to be done here but some easy fixes identified.

Ryan, who had a magnificent game, then scored three tries in the second half to take the score to 34-7 and rightly be awarded player of the match. His work around the pitch was extraordinary and his try tally due to his support of the ball carrier. Outstanding work to cap a great team performance.
