Well on a sunny but chilly day we ventured to Hazelwood. The boys were very excited and keen to continue their progression.
Hazelwood are always strong and although we made a handling error within ten seconds of kick off the boys regained their composure and with some excellent tackling by the whole team and strong running went in at half time only one try down.
We played 9 a side to give every one a game but our opposition also to ensure inclusion swooped two A team players into the Bs. This made a difference with Hazelwood scoring three tries without reply but this galvanised the boys and instead of letting heads drop they tackled everything and with some really good handling the boys managed to draw the match 8-8.
A really good effort, good encouragement and unselfish play and a genuine team performance -excellent boys well done.
To evidence the commitment shown by one player who lacks a little confidence in tackling, for the first time in matches and some PE lessons ended up with muddy knees ….. I believe photos are available .
Boys keep working hard and having fun, you are improving all the time.
