We had a re-alignment of the team with our front row options decimated by flu ? bugs this morning. Tom Irons stepped up, ‘come on you Irons’ ⚒, with uncontested scrummaging throughout, 15 players in total meant for a hard 70 minutes against a squad of 22. Needless to say we suffered with this limitation and also our own usually fantastic defence not coming to Ivybridge with us.
Of course the guys never gave up with, despite the result, some dogged performances. Final score 9 try’s to 2 - Mathew & Finn.
We will need to get our mojo back for next week, Exmouth, if we are to finish the year on a high. Please encourage conversations on tackling, moving up quickly in defence and passing when it’s the right time.
Thanks for those who came along to play and support, it makes all the difference with the right numbers on and off the field. Hopefully those injuries today are quickly fixed and we can turn things around next week . PG
