Sunday 22nd March - Redditch at home
Tough, physical morning yet again. But tackling let us down.....
This was always going to be a tough game with several key players missing, but credit to the boys they did well against a solid, aggressive Redditch side who relished the physical game and really tested our defence, which unfortunately wasn't great at times today.
As ever, the teams were split and the results are below -
Game 1 - Drew 2-2
Players (tries) - Rhys, Freddie (1), James, Liam, Ben, Danny (1), Jude
Game 1 - Lost 6-0
Players (tries) - Lucas, Jonathan, Cian, Sean, Joshua, Noah, Ben
Game 2 - Won 3-2
Players (tries) - Rhys (1), James (3), Liam, Cian, Danny, Noah, Lucas
Game 2 - Lost 1-0
Players (tries) - Joshua, Jude, Sean, Jonathan, Ben, Liam, Freddie
With the exception of the second game, the two teams were fairly matched across the board, though Redditch did have a couple of Under 10s. No excuses, tackling is as important as scoring tries and its something we really need to tighten up.
There were some positives, James and Danny with strong runs. Liam, Rhys and Freddie putting in some good strong hits and the some good team work from all involved. Hopefully the tackling will improve as time goes on.......
