BJCC (PRELIM) - CLASSY SMOB PERFORMANCE AT MIDSOMER NORTON SEES THEM THROUGH

by MIKE REED

EVEN WITH SOME MEMBERS OF THE CUP SQUAD UNABLE TO ATTEND DUE TO INJURIES SMOB RAN IN 8 TRIES AND 4 CONVERSIONS TO WIN 48 -0.

WITH ONLY 17 FIT PLAYERS AVAILABLE DUE TO LATE INJURIES, THE SQUAD TRAVELLED TO MIDSOMER NORTON'S GROUND WITH SOME NERVOUSNESS. THE WHOLE SQUAD GAVE AN EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE INCLUDING THE REPLACEMENTS, THE SCORE DOES NOT GIVE AN ACCURATE ACCOUNT OF THE GAME, AS MIDSOMER NORTON PLAYED SOME GOOD RUGBY BUT WERE DENIED TRIES CLOSE TO OUR LINE ON A NUMBER OF OCCASIONS DUE TO OUR STRONG DEFENCE. MIDSOMER NORTON ALSO TACKLED WELL, WHICH KEPT THE SCORES DOWN. OUR PACK WERE STRONG IN THE SCRUM AND COMPETED WELL AT THE BREAKDOWN AREA AND WE WON THE MAJORITY OF LINEOUT'S IN WET CONDITIONS. THE BACKS PRODUCED A NUMBER OF STRONG RUNS AND THE PASSES CAME AT THE RIGHT TIME TO ALLOW A NUMBER OF TRIES, SOME GOOD SWITCH MOVES ALSO RESULTED IN FURTHER TRIES BEING SCORED. SPOT KICKS AND KICKING OUT OF HAND WAS ALSO IMPRESSIVE THROUGHOUT THE GAME.
A BIG THANK-YOU TO THE MIDSOMER NORTON TEAM, COACHES AND JUNIOR CHAIR FOR THEIR HOSPITALITY AND ALSO THE SOMERSET SOCIETY REFEREE FOR HIS PATIENCE AND INSTRUCTION IN THE RULES OF THE GAME.
