Unlucky and Underserved Loss Against Strong Sale
Sefton lead for 3/4 of the game but throw it away in the last 10 minutes
No full report again sorry. Today we visited a very strong Sale side but for large parts of the game were the better side. We led 5-3 with 15 to go but some unfortunate injuries and poor tackling let Sale back into the game. All in all a really a good effort against a big and well organised side. Fullback Callum was a huge miss on the day. Despiye the loss this was a great game and really fun to be involved in.
Forwards-Ellis, Joel, Charlie, Ali, Kostas, Anthony, Alex
Backs-Tom W, Dan, Sam, Mikey, Jay, Kealan, Tom K, Will
Mikey x 3
Sam x 2
Man of the Match went to Will. Solid in defence, carried hard, passed well and was our best decision maker with ball in hand. Also showed his adaptability by playing in various positions across the backs and forwards. There were good showings from Jay, Mikey, Sam, Charlie and Kostas as well.
To sum it up, brilliant for half an hour, extremely poor for 10 minutes, but that costs you against good sides like Sale. Credit to our hosts for battling their way back into it, they were a great side with great spirit, hopefully there'll be a rematch sometime soon
