With a some lads unavailable this week It was always going to be a much mightier task against last years league one winners and the cup runners up for the last 3 years in a row to get any kind of result.
Today scouts were just too strong all round and did the basics very well. After giving a pretty good account of ourselves for the first 20 minutes and making a pretty good fight of it at 12-0, we just started to slip off too many tackles which then became a habit for the remainder of the game.
Credit to the Tows lads though, who stuck it out and wanted to play for the full 70 minutes which showed a lot of guts and character. Its going to have to be a very good side (or a very lucky one) who will beat scouts for the cup this year.
As always you have to take the rough with the smooth and there is lots more rugby to be played this year and in the future. We will bounce back!
MOM: Ewan Gilhooley who tackled tirelessly through the whole game and really led the line out well.
