Under 11's in first game of season

Well, first game of the season and we came across a very well organised Waunarlwydd side. It was a very physical game, with players down all around the park!

Special mention to Cobi who stepped in superbly at Scrum Half in Kymon's absence and who had to leave the field after it took 3 Waunarlwydd players to get him into touch. Well done to Finn for turning up with a leg injury but still desperate to play - great attitude!!

Our rucking was good with Sam, Nathan and Freddie r...eally putting in a shift, and man of the match Jack Lewis-Colwil with some terrific try saving tackling and expansive runs in his first full game with us. Harrison & Jack Smith tackled all over the park, and some players need to step up after all the tackling practice we've been doing, you know who you are!!!.

One thing we need to work on is positioning, this is a different game now with 12 players on a bigger pitch, and where Waunarlwydd took the advantage is in their passing and distribution. Some players wouldn't pass until they took the tackle and by then it was too late, remember the ball travels faster than the player when passed well.

Good work Izzy who had the ball more today than the whole of last season, passing it really well, as was Ben, Jac Jones,& Owen. Morgan also saw some running action out on the wing when we managed to get the ball wide for once!! That boy has pace, we have to use it!!

We welcome Will Jones who played well in his first game, we look forward to having you with us Will.

For next week, we need to keep our positions and not get sucked into the action at the rucks, keep our width and trust our tackling. We also have to be more aggressive in defence, don't wait for them to run to us!! The scrum and line out worked well and we should be positive about the coming season. Well done boys and girls, see you all Friday, Richy W
