Scunthorpe Under 10s took 2 teams away to Doncaster this weekend for some terrific rugby. The Greens and Blacks won all their matches putting on some fine displays of defence work with Jones K, Conroy, and Thornton continually keeping the opposition at bay. The first match was a clean sheet at 6-0 win with tries from Hatfield (2), Conroy (2) Thornton (2). Highlights included Jones K banging in a tackle to cause the opposition to drop the ball which was picked up by Jones K passed to Frary only to be stopped millimetres from the line. Proctor held up a maul winning the ball who passed out to Carter subsequently running backwards into the ref who went head over heels. Some great interceptions by Conroy Carter and Thornton who read the game well too.
The second match was tense as the half time score was 3-2 down however we pulled it back and then some with a succession of scores adding up bringing the end result to a fantastic 9-5 win. Scores from Thornton (2) Hatfield (2) Conroy (3) Jones K and Frary.
Highlights included a near score from Carter who was tackled into touch in the corner plus another near try by Frary who again was stopped just inches from the line. Some good passing in the team prevented Doncaster getting their hands on the ball and failing to make headway towards pulling the score back.
The Blacks scoresheet was marked by Quibell (3) Hart (2) and Barley (1) in the first game which ended with a fab 6-2 win. The ref was quite strict and red carded players for high tackling and although this prevented a flow of game play, the Blacks continued putting in a good defence with great work seem by Sitek Jones I and Stow. The second match was more of the same ending with a 7-1 win with scores from Barley (3) Stow, Clarke and Jones (2).
All in a good days work for the Under 10’s.
