U12 v New Panteg (Away) 04 Mar 2012

5-12 Loss

Fourteen Tigers travelled to Pontypool to face a strong New Panteg outfit in the wind and rain on what was a very heavy pitch. The Tigers turned in a resolute performance having taken the lead early in the first half. Captain Ellis Brown put in a man of the match performance and took the battle to the New Panteg outfit from the outset. The backline kept their shape and pressured the New Panteg line at every opportunity, it was this pressure that resulted in Joe Impey's charge down try following a period of sustained pressure on the New Panteg try line..

An injury to Lane, late in the first half resulted in the Tigers dropping to 13 players. After a closely fought second half New Panteg pulled ahead with a converted try. Both sides battled hard through the second half but in the end New Panteg's extra numbers showed through and they scored the winning try in the final minute..

Amu, Williams, Roberts, Horsfield, Pascall, Impey, Brown, Mann, Hughes, Lane, Lanfear, Thomas, Cutrupi, Cunningham-Martin.
