Wednesday saw the U8 Tag side take on St. Aubyn’s. Playing 8 per side, St. Aubyn’s got off to a flying start. They had two quick players who managed to dash round the outside of the defensive line and score several of their tries. To Copthorne’s credit, the boys never gave up and they continued to play with a lot of enthusiasm and effort. We looked good on attack and managed to score several well constructed tries. We need to work on our positioning skills as we were often caught out on defence by standing in a bunch too often. I was particularly impressed with several players who really tried to stay in position (Arjun, James, Ben K & Lani). The final score was Copthorne 12 v St Aubyn’s 12. A close one!
