Rotherham u13 vs Scunthorpe u13
Happy New Year
The festive period is well and truly over, the last of the selection boxes have been consumed and the boxes of celebrations are opened only to find the discarded bounty's. It's still January and its cold....really cold, its colder on an open field with no protection, but this is how we choose to spend our early Sunday mornings, in the middle of South Yorkshire - it's heaven.....right?
Missing only Dylan and Danny, we went away with 17 - still could do with a few more if anyone knows anyone whose interested?
Had to be a decent warm up... the only other option was head to toe in deep heat and feel the burn. Rotherham it had to be said looked more keen than us, maybe it was the extra half hour they'd had in bed, but they certainly looked aggressive in what they were doing.
So enough rambling - what happened - well the first 3rd was a fairy even affair, Scunthorpe still had Christmas lag in their legs and Rotherham had started much better, still for all them playing the better Rugby Dan Longden, Josh Hebenstriet x 2 and Lewis Talbot had us 20-15 in front.
After this 3rd the lads put together what we'd worked on in training and started playing some really good team Rugby, substitute Alfie O and Oskar in only his 2nd game scored, Dan got a second and Greeny continued his unbelievable scoring record from hooker.
Will Horner, Jack Murr and Oskar for his second sealed the win with one more somewhere in between this lot for Rotherham and we had won our first game of 2018 - long may the performances continue - if the boys continue to work hard as a team i'm sure they will.
