U8’s play three-way fixture in the shadow of Sixways Stadium.
Bears V Pears Round 2!
The U8’s headed to Worcester on a cold Sunday morning, where our hosts Worcester had arranged a three-way fixture with Bridgnorth.
Our travelling squad of 24 enabled us to have 3 teams against one each from Bridgnorth & Worcester plus a barbarian team made up of players from all three clubs.
A huge thank you to Jason & Charlie P who played for the barbarians but more importantly both scored tries against Bournville! Cracking effort and well done.
All Bournville teams played against the three opposition teams. It was clear from the get go that we wanted to play competitive games. We attacked as a team, supporting the runners and making excellent passes to free up space and create try scoring opportunities.
Our defence was good including turnovers from making 7 tags! A few lapses let in easy scores but we kept our shape, made some really telling tags which forced the opposition to drop the ball that we picked up and ran back to score! This was positive playing as we are now learning to play on until the whistle blows.
It was a good morning of rugby and the opposition made us work hard. Having nearly all our squad available and travelling was superb and is very much appreciated by all the coaches. Thank you mums and dads for making the journey.
A big thank you also to Tim at Worcester for organising and preparing an order of play that made sure we played the games on time!
