Chichester U12s hosted East Grinstead for the first game of the Phase 2 Sussex Waterfall competition with storm Freya adding her bit to the playing conditions ...
With G's having been promoted from Group B, following there phase 1 wins and also having the knowledge of the Chichester squad following a previous 'friendly', their expectations of a win were high - something the U12s quickly dampened down. As from the outset the offence defense of the squad put immense pressure on G's with the their backline having no where to go, except backwards. Through the sustained pressure and the want to win the 50/50 ball Chi continued to apply the pressure throught the whole game. With tries coming from Jaiden Cloke, Jonah Hutchings & Archie Ross it was a excellent demonstration of Teamwork and 'grit'. A good start to Phase 2, but, with areas of improvement noted by the coaches.
Great to see the remaining non-playing squad members attending and supporting the playing team, being Lucas Toft, Archie Willis, Eli Stisted, & Joseph Phillips. - Great support and Teamwork guys.
The U12's look forward to welcoming Crowborough U12s to Oaklands Pavilion on Sunday 17th March, for the next game of phase 2.
