After a tough game last week against Great Walstead the boys were keen to get stuck into the challenge of Hazelwood. This one again proved to be a very tough fixture against a school that could field three under 10 teams. The first half was a tough affair as Hazelwood ran in six unanswered tries this I felt was a little harsh on our boys who had plenty of the ball but were undone by the pace and accuracy of our opponents play.

Half time came and Hazelwood made a number of chang-es which seemed to balance things out a little more. We certainly came into the game more in the second half and scored tries through Luca, Louis and Ali. The game finished as an 8-3 defeat but the boys once again kept on going to the end. I thought Liban made some great tackles, Sonny showed strength when running with the ball, Luca always looked like he might score, Alex was often our first player at the break down and Cosmic had his best game of the season.
