U8 v Berry Hill (Away) 20 Oct 2013

Well what a lovely day on Sunday, after a bit of jigging around Berry Hill and Cinderford managed to put out 2 teams, 1 Berry Hill and one combined as Cinderford didn’t have too many players, which meant all our boys got a game. The pitches were in good nick at Berry Hill which made for some great rugby.

It was wonderful to see the boys implementing many of the things we practiced and talked about at the previous weeks intense training session in the pouring rain. When we debriefed at the end of the games yesterday it was brilliant to hear the boys talking positively about support and teamwork.

They were enthusiastically talking about all the other skills they did well during the game and identified some things that they could have improved upon too. I keep saying it, but we have a great group of boys which gives us a strong base to work from over the coming years, please keep bringing them along.

Apologies for those boys that only got one game, I wasn’t aware but apparently some of the Cinderford players went home early.

Scores on the doors for the five games were as follows:

4 V 4 – Scorers – Harry 2, Henry, Robert

2 V 6 – Scorers – Vince, Henry, Robert, Harry 3

2 V 5 – Scorers – Big Ollie, Benjamin, Finn 2, Jack

1 V 6 – Scorers – Finn 2, Jack, Gus 3

2 V 6 – Scorers – Fergus 3, Arthur 2, Toby

So in summary 27 trys scored and only 11 conceded. Great effort by all.

Thanks for your continued support and thanks to Berry Hill for their hospitality.
