Reading Vs Esher 14 -46
Tackle, Tackle, Tackle must be the message for our next fixture!!! Another story of the score not reflecting the game as we started the second half with 2 great trys from penalties, putting the score to a respectable 22-14 inclusive of a weak interception try from Esher . Taking nothing from the Esher side, very strong and organised but we never gave up so all credit to the guys.
The forwards this week were fantastic, we really competed in the breakdown and won 50/50 ball with some turn over wins as well, it was great to watch. We also dominated in the scrum against a heavy pack which again is such a move forward for us, awesome work front 5. Thank you loose forwards I asked you run all game and you didn’t let the side down, well done! A little more work in the back line and defensive organisation, and we will really start to see results.
With the squad now 26-27 strong we have a great opportunity to build strength and depth within the team. Notable performances this weekend, once again star tackling from Alex, Cameron, Patrick and Craig, along with man of the match, new squad member Victor (well done) with a try to add to performance.
Abbey at home this coming Sunday so let’s work hard Wednesday and get a local scalp!
