Under 10s - Two Games Today

Two games today and two completely different performances, in the first game we were static in defence and watched the opposition pinch every ball in the ruck as we stood there like zombies watching them. At one point I thought it was only Dylan and Dewi tackling at one point. We continued to leak tries and every time we had the ball we ran into their biggest players rather than move the ball wide, we needed to play our game and move the ball wide. Towards the end we started to play some rugby with Oscar, Dexter sonny and jack also getting into the game in both attack and deference. Second game was against CRICC and we asked the players to focus and play our game plan and move the ball wide and offload the ball out of the tackle. We could do with the confidence boost where Dylan who had an outstanding game in defence started to make yards and offloading out of the tackle, next up Dexter who was like a truck and didn't stop and powered over for the first try and top try scorer award. CRICC came back but luckily Oscar had converted the try from the corner a very difficult kick so we were up by 2 points. In the second half we asked again to move the ball and we ran a pre planned move Oscar miss one to dewi and drew in the defence and threw a long ball out for Scott to take it running at full tilt through the game and powered into the corner and shared top tryscorer award. again a difficult kick from the corner but Oscar just casually put the ball over. You could see the confidence lifting we started driving up in defence and this time we were turning over the opposition as we grappled for the ball. Jack at this point had the bit between his teeth tackling everything that moved and even tried to drive 3of their players over the line but he was awarded clubman for his running and tackling today just pipping Dylan to the trophy. Another player who cam close to an award was Piers who finished off the move after Dylan, Dexter and Scott took the ball up and then Dylan popped the ball to Piers in space who charged up the line and carried the covering tackled over the line this time scoring in the left corner, Oscar had his head in his hands another difficult kick but Dewi beat him to the kicking tee and followed Oscars lead and put the ball over from the corner. Dewi now was moving the ball from left to right first putting Sonny into space who when he gets going is hard to catch and Jack and Scott the same the other side which opened up the gaps for dewi to sidestep and cut through the middle and cross for another try. Oscar now was dictating the game moving the ball quickly to give boys space to run into to go with a strong defensive effort and was awarded top tackler. Last play of the game and Matt who was having a quite game all of a  sudden came to life and read their backs move and grabbed an interception and used his cool as the defence came across and offloading back inside to Oscar who then spun the ball out for Dewi to seal the win and was awarded making a difference award.  Last game next week home to Pencoed before we break for Xmas.
PS. Thanks again to Neil and Brad for the new drill tops the boys really appreciate it.
