Our man of the match:  Tom
We always look forward to the games against Hurst as one of the bigger challenges of the season, and our boys approached the game with a fantastic attitude today.  We tackled ferociously right from the start in this match and won the ball on many occasions in the first half with some excellent rucking.  We dominated the first half against some good opponents and thoroughly deserved to be winning the game 3 tries to 1 at half time.  Unfortunately we could not maintain this intensity for the whole match and Hurst found another gear in the second half, winning a lot more ball and putting us under pressure.  Our tackling remained superb and there were many pauses in play as we waited for the Hurst players to pick themselves up after we put them down.  It was definitely our best game of the season, win or lose, and the boys should be proud of the way they played in what was a very physical match.  Well done boys!!
