Nantyffyllon U10s 39 Porthcawl U10s 14


Mixed performance today where in parts we showed good movement and passing to score some good tries by Dewi and Joe but Nanty just wanted it a bit more than us today and muscled us off the ball at the breakdown and stopped us moving the ball wide with some good tackling. After taking the lead we started falling off tackles which was disappointing as the game was there to be won but fair play to Nanty they kept on plugging away and deserved their win. On a positive in addition to tries which Joe and Dewi shared the top try scorer award a couple of boys really stood up to the strong running and never gave up. First Rueben who played wing and whenever he had the ball he made yards taking the opposition on the outside and defensively he must have made at least 5try saving tackles no matter how big or small the runners were, Rueben was there and deservedly picked up clubman individual award.  Steff and Dewi also  tackled well but top tackler went to Lex who went low on every tackle and brought the player down when others went high and got powered off the ball and picked up top tackler. Dex was also outstanding today he didn’t let himself get intimidated and even when he got knocked over he got straight back up and tackled the next one and kept on going, well done dexter great effort in attack, defence and at the ruck area showing great leadership in a tough game and deservedly picked up clubman making a difference award. Next week we play Maesteg Celtic so we need to get our self back on the front foot again and build that confidence again.

No training this week as its half term.
