A sunny but bitterly cold day at Walstead. We played their 2’s by prior agreement as their 1’s are very strong this year. As it turned out it was a bit of a miss match as we quickly went into a comfortable lead. By careful management the game rather more even in the second half but the result was never in doubt. The final score was 5 – 3 to Copthorne. We tried to move the ball wide but were rather frustrated by the continuous arm wrestle at the ruck. We will need to tackle better and finish our chances if we are to trouble Hazelwood next week. The boys can do it but will need to be at their best.
