Great Team Spirit
The u14's started their County Cup campaign this morning against local rivals Abingdon from kick off Didcot were very slow to the ball and did not commit in the rucks and when they had the ball wasted it. This went on for the first 15 mins at this point they we're 17 points down.
A quick talk to the team under the posts after the 3rd Abingdon try did the trick from the kick off the boys kicked into gear moving the ball out wide and dominating the rucks and scrums resulting in a converted try half time 7-17 to Abingdon.
From the kick off in the 2nd half the Didcot pack took the fight to Abingdon and they could not cope with the power of the pack who all showed what they can do Harry Levell (8) smashing everything in his path, Jo Sykes hooking and line out throws spot on and the packs dominance in the scrums (max great front row dominance) , rucks and the rolling mauls Abingdon could not cope with it !! and started to loose their heads when Didcot scored their 3rd try of the second half taking the lead. The boot of Dlyan Madge made the final score 26-17 to Didcot .
A solid team performance once they started playing their game plan we just need to do it from the start.
