U12's Great Start to the Year
Score line not reflective of hard fought game
We started our year away to Orrell, with a couple of new faces, Jay K and Joel Mc playing their first matches.
Forwards-Charlie, Joel, Alex, Ali, WIll, Ellis, Anthony, Kostas, Jay K
Backs-Tom W, Sam, Tom K, Mikey, Kealan, Jay P, Callum, Dan, Joel Mc
To sum up the game, it was mostly Sefton attack against a strong and resilient Orrell defence, who looked to counter through some good ball carriers upfront and some silky backs. We passed the ball superbly, supported well and were quick to secure the ball at the ruck. In defence we were strong, aggressive and always looking to push the opposition back. Players were given a chance to perform in different positions today and all did well wherever they slotted in.
Sam x 3
Tom K x 3
Tom W x1
Will x 2
There were some excellent tries scored throughout the game. Mikey's first came after some gorgeous passing and an outrages behind the back flick from Tom K, Sam's third was a brilliant solo run after a great offload by Charlie, Tom W's was a really brave finish and Tom K's second was another great solo run following brilliant passing.
Man of the Match- No MOTM today, too many superb performances to pick just one, which is testament to how well everyone played. Everybody put in a fantastic display today. Special mentions go to- Charlie, Sam, Tom K, Will, Ali, Tom W, who were all on top of their game.
In conclusion, a great morning of rugby. Really promising to see such fantastic passing between the backs, responsible use of tactical kicking and decision making with ball in hand. Everyone put in a fantastic display. Well done to Jay K and Joel Mc on their debuts. Thanks to Orrell for hosting, you defended valiantly the whole game and had some dangerous counter attacking backs. The game was played in great spirit. See everyone Thursday.
