Our first sunny Wednesday saw our U8 boys in a great contest v Lancing Prep.
Feeling confident after some good training sessions on Monday and Tuesday the boys were keen to put it into practice as we missed the game last week. The first half was fiercely contested with both teams scoring at regular intervals. We defended well but at times were not quick enough to deal with one of the boys on their team who managed to score several of their tries. We attacked well, however we were not running straight enough and this cost us, shutting down open space far too often.
The second half was similar in terms of our defence but we did attack more directly, and this gave us more chances to attack down the middle of the field and then distribute the ball out wide later to score in the corners. The match ended up in a 12-12 draw which I think was a fair representation of the game. Well done boys, a much improved performance! DH
