The under 8s travelled to Old Brods in Halifax to play in a triangular fixture against the hosts and Huddersfield YMCA. With a squad of 13, we were able to split into 2 even teams who both played 3 games each. The lads were full of beans with both teams putting in a lot of hard work and in the end we won all our games so giving us a 6-0 scoreline. Five of the games were pretty solid wins for our lads as their passing and support play is really starting to come on.
Team 1 – Dan, Fin, Jack Bayley, Janek, George and Thomas B beat Huddersfield 13-7, Old Brods 19-11 and 9-5. All the lads scored at least one try each and everyone made a number of tags.
Team 2 – Noel, Maxx, Jack Barnard, Matthew, Owen, Liam and Thomas G beat Huddersfield 13-8, Old Brods 6-5 and 12-7. Five of the seven got on the score sheet and again all made numerous tags.
Player of the week went to Matthew who is improving at some rate as he only starting playing a few weeks ago. Janek got tagger of the week for his best ever game in a green shirt. It was interesting to see some of the reffing as Yorkshire teams seem to allow running with the ball in one hand so leaving the other hand free to fend off which is not in the rules but we seem to be adapting pretty well to whatever is thrown at us on match days. Next week we are at Sandal in Wakefield for a hard game before we head back at Heslam for the Halloween disco and 4 weeks in a row of home training and a match. Well done all lets try and keep it going!
