Walsall U11's Run Redditch Ragged
Walsall improve yet again in one sided affair
Walsall won both matches against Redditch scoring 13 tries in total and Jack Tranter provided 3 of them.
Match 1 - Redditch 2 - Walsall 5
The Walsall starting line up saw Gurdit, Brandon, Amrit, Lewis, Joe C, Joe D, Teddy, Kyan and Hansen start and in an even contest Teddy and Hansen gave Walsall a half time lead. Walsall were guilty of giving away too many silly penalties for offside and pulling back and we don't want to see that again.
The second half was much improved with tries from Joe C, Joe D and Jack T.
Match 2 - Redditch 2 - Walsall 8
With Sam, Finn, Dominic, Jack H and Bobby starting the second game it was very pleasing to see so many of the newer players making a positive contribution. it showed in the quality of the tries scored and particularly the defence. Walsall really pressured the bigger Redditch players and mistakes were made which Walsall capitalised on.
Sam in particular pulled off 2 fantastic tackles and scored a first half try. Jack T scored twice with strong and committed running but must look to pass a little more. Brandon put in some better strong runs which were impressive and Joe D scored a fantastic length of the pitch effort. Hansen crossed twice and Teddy once again showed blistering pace to bag another couple.
Man of the Match - Joe Dickson - Great running and setting a good example to others.
