A brilliant display of running rugby and team work on Sunday all combined to dazzling effect for an epic first win over Centaurs Blue's!
Inspired by a gutsy performance from our u10's, and some good work last week against Tanglin, our boys took to the field with renewed confidence which was evident from the kick off. Taking the ball cleanly we immediately ran at Centaurs and, after a break down the left, recycled and spread the ball wide to the right where it found its way to Azyzul to score one of his hat-trick of tries that morning. Inspired by this early success and with Centaurs slightly shell-shocked we were able to score 3 more in quick succession, 2 of which Max Graham converted.
We looked to be in firm control, with the scrum working well and winning most of the breakdowns, but to their credit Centaurs came back strongly scoring 2 tries without answer with the score 24-12 at half-time. After the break Centaurs were first out of the blocks and scored another well worked try, but our boys rallied and scored another try through solid team work and great recycling to put the game out of reach. Centaurs never gave up and threatened to break time and again but great tackling shut them down every time.Thereafter our confidence soared and Rian Hortin went on to score his 3rd try & hat trick before Ayyzul finished off the game with another brilliant team run for his 3rd.
Needless to say we were incredibly proud of the boys and their effort, a great sign of how the team is improving and hopefully something we can build on against SCC in a few weeks time.
