Pressure Pays Dividends
Walsall pile on the pressure to win through.
In awful conditions Walsall secured a fantastic victory over rivals Tamworth.
Intense defensive pressure forced Tamworth into mistakes and when combined with strong running saw Walsall through to a 4 - 0 victory in Match 1.
Joe Dickson bagged two excellent tries with excellent and elusive running. Joe Coleman and Brandon scored a try each. But it was the defensive effort that was most pleasing. First time tackles were made time and again and real competition at the ruck were crucial to the victory.
Amrit and Gurdit were a constant thorn in the side of Tamworth tackling and running hard in equal measure.
Hanson again showed what an elusive runner he is as did Cameron.
Arun, Luke, Jake and Pippa committed themselves very well in the wet conditions pulling off some crucial tackles.
Jack and Will carried the ball forward with their typical style and both Ruben and Lewis had outstanding games.
A well deserved victory and it sets us up well for Worcester next week.
