Walsall beat Old Hales
Walsall Under 8s win three out of four and have an undefeated Sunday against Old Halesownians.
Another good day for the Walsall Under 8s as they hosted Old Halesownians at Delves Road. The Polar Bears (Alex, Will, Thane, Govind, Freddie, Alfie, Jack, Finlay) faced Old Hales' B team first starting off fantastically with brilliant defence helping them to a 4-2 lead at half time and a 7-4 lead shortly after the break. However complacency set in and wingers drifted in with some greediness on the ball happening too and Old Hales battled back to 7 all and had possession of the ball but an unfortunate knock on and a great run and try in the corner by Jack gave the Polars an 8-7 win. The Grizzley Bears (Reuben, Ewan, Dom, Luke, Kai, Elliot, Henry, Isaac and debutants Courtney and Yusuf) faced the Old Hales A team first and battled to a low scoring 3-3 draw before facing the A team in their second game and showing the Polars how to do it by winning 8-0! The Polars second game against the A team saw them turn on the style with direct running from Alex and Alfie as well as good teamwork defensively giving them a 12-7 that the coaches and Captain Will were proud of. We finished with another closely and strongly contested Bears v Bears game and we now look forward to our trip to Leicester Tigers. Thank you to everyone who helped me yet again. #Grrr
