Luctonians (U12) vs Worcester (U12) mixed team 1, game 2
Game runs away from the Woo
So game 2 of the Woo versus the Ducks, and here's hoping standards have improved as the debutant referee runs out for his second match.
The Ducks got the upper hand early on with a couple of quick tries round the outside, and it looked to be getting away from the boys in blue. When the third went in for the Ducks, those on the sides thought the worst, and concerned parents looked on, trying to gauge PHD (player head droopiness) using British Standard eyeballs set against the patented Droopometer, but you need not fear, the boys had fire in their bellies.
The Worcester lads piled on the pressure in defence, Tuba, Maggot, Dirtbag and the Morgue all hitting hard and forcing the Ducks backwards, and eventually securing ball. 3 phases later Chip picked up off the base, drifted round the corner and dotted over, before being belly squashed by the Ducks wrestling fan Carwash Stu (see photo).
Mr. T then sensibly kicked territory, chased his own ball, and was stopped at the death, and a hastily blown whistle relived the pressure for the Ducks. 3-1 at halftime, but all momentum was with the Woo, and coaches and players alike were confident for a stylish comeback.
Unfortunately not. 2 tries in the 2nd for the Ducks, a good score for the Woo said to be held up, and despite continued effort by the Severnsiders, if the man in the middle is cutting you no slack, you ain't gonna get a new pair of trousers.
The Ducks got the win, another flattering scoreline, Worcester will be ready for the return visit after Christmas.
