Avonvale U18's first match of season
By Moz Hall
A superb display of free flowing rugby
Playing in our Red kit, this was the first occasion that many members of the team had the opportunity to train and play together following summer and school commitments so they were a little rusty to start wit,h but quickly remembered their shape and started to play the style of rugby that is now coached at Avonvale. If one was critical they did put themselves into trouble by hammering into the larger Devizes forwards with out suitable support when the should have played wider and with more depth. Having said that we mixed our game well with tactically supported moves and thoughtful kicking and started to rattle up the try count. It was obvious at half time that the game was won and they took their feet off the gas pedal during the second half and gave the opposition a score with an intercepted pass. It is impossible to name individuals but the 12 trys were spread around the players and Tom kicked 9 conversions . A satisfying day for the team, the coaches and the supporters.
