After the Christmas break this was back to rugby with a bang. A heavy pitch and a big set of Pennthorpe forwards made possession difficult to gain and we looked rusty in comparison to our last outing. Everything was very narrow and constantly we cut back into traffic. There had been team changes with Sam S Iill and Jacob picking up a knock in training. Jake came in on the wing with Alex moving to full back. We did go ahead through Austin but then fell off tackles to concede twice before moving ahead with tries from Austin (2) and Ben giving us a 4 – 2 lead at the break. A scrappy second half saw us 2 further scores and conceded 1 to run out 6 -3 winners. Not our best game but we did eventually start playing a more structured game.  There will be big challenges in the future and we will have to play better but considering the break I was pleased at the end of he day. I think that special mention should be made to Alex M who, despite playing out of position played a blinder!  Thanks for all the parental support and see you all next week.
