Scunthorpe u13 v Lincoln u13

Lincoln travel to chilly scunny for a game

We were meant to have one of our longest trips of the season to deepest Yorkshire, but Old Rishworthians decided they would rather play away than at home and we were left without a game, enter Lincoln, who call us saying they're desperate for a game and would like to play us, we chance our arm and say will you come to us?!?!? They agree - it's gonna be a good day...
We go down Oglesby and it a crisp morning, winter is coming... we dropped Lewis midweek after he dislocated his thumb in training, Little Josh went for a christening and Lincoln turned up with 11, their other car was missing somewhere around Scunthorpe, so a huge well done to those players who went to play for Lincoln Jake K, Oliver, Dylan, Big Josh, Adam all boys making a huge impression on the Lincoln team and played really well, whats better is the spirit shown by the lads agreeing to play with not a moan or whimper - the true ethics of Rugby being shown by Scunny greens.

Training had gone well and we have seemed to of turned a corner, with the lads actually talking to each other on the pitch giving accurate information. We gave the opportunity to mix the players about a bit playing in unfamiliar positions for some of them.
We must approach every game like we're playing the all blacks and to have as much creativity and awareness as if we were playing whoever they may be. With this in mind we gave each of the lads 3 targets to improve their game over the season - goal setting all the good coaches do it, Eddie Jones, Steve Hansen, Tim Robinson, us.....

So to the game, we were soon on the attack and if the lads were honest we were playing pretty unattractive, non team friendly rugby, Will Horner spotting a gap at guard, Alfie Oldridge doing similar, Big Josh similar again x 2 and 20 mins was up and we'd barely got out of 2nd gear.
So we said yes it's fun to score, yes it'd be great if everyone got a try, but we would be much much happier if we scored one more try but it was a well worked one, so team play was the new game goal, so on came Jake Kreamer who had been Lincolns best player for the first 10 mins and Alf Taylor into the front row, Olly came on and was inches short of his first try, the lads really trying to get him over the whitewash, when it happens there will be a lot of back slapping as Oliver becomes a popular new member of the team...we just need to find him a position. Big Josh made a Lewis style tackle at full back and punched the air with delight.

We did start to play better rugby with some good go forward through Scott Kelly, Jake Sephton and Adam Wilson, through the forwards and some inventive moves through the backs, Dylan cLARE unlucky not to get over the line on the wing and Jack Standerline had obviously recovered from his bad back to take a pass off his toes.
Tries in this 20 came through Will Horner, Alfie Oldridge x 2, Charley Wilkinson and Alfie Taylor.

Into the 3rd, 3rd, Dante Salvatore-Redhead went back to 9 after a brief stint in the forwards, Will to full back and we now playing some good rugby Chris Green, Alfie Taylor, Jack Standerline and Jack Murr the try scorers, but the manner wasn't long run ins from all over they were beginning to be well worked and decent pop ups off the floor and out of tackles, the last 7 mins or so tripled our penalty count/handling errors but the strong defence wasn't going to let Lincoln through as the were repelled at every opportunity.

Greeny took man of the match honours from the coaches, stealing loads of ball in the scrums, and generally working very hard, raising comments from the opposition coaches. The players vote was shared between Alfie Oldridge and Jack Standerline - well done to them
