Under 7's v Old Salts

U7s: P3 W1 D2

Team: Wills, Charlotte, Amy, Jake, Rio, Carys


The U7’s together with several other age groups welcomed Old Salts to Yards on Sunday 27th Oct.  This was our first home match of the season, and with plenty of pitch side support basking in the glorious sunshine, hopes were high…….


Our team, bolstered with the experience from Rio soon settled down to play some fast(ish) flowing tag rugby. Early on in the first game both Wills and Amy showed keen attacking intent with some powerful and elusive running, which proved no match for the Old Salt’s defence, both of them scoring some great tries. Despite a strong fight back from Salts in the latter half of the game their coaches conceded that we pipped them on the try count, and so won the match. Well done Yards!


The second and third matches were also close scoring affairs, and we stayed in contention thanks to the mazy running of Jake and direct running from Charlotte, both of whom scored some great tries in these games. Carys also showed her great rugby skills with some fine displays of direct running and quick sharp passing to keep the attacks flowing. With Tom and Thomas cheering on from the sidelines, Wills continued to show his finishing flair by scoring a brace of tries in the final match.  We also saw Rio  finding his rugby feet and danced through the opposition to score a well deserved try.  However, a couple of fumbles from the home side allowed the opposition to score breakaway tries, resulting in both of these matches being tied.


Overall another great performance from the U7’s team, and with continued hard work, and practice, the team will continue to improve and become great champions.


On a final note, Rob does not want to draw to our attention to the fact that both the matches he ref’d in, resulted in a draw. This was purely coincidental.  However, to be on the safe side please do not refer to the matter within a 50 mile radius of the club house……


We hope to see you all next week and also welcome back flying Flynn for another home game, this time against Woodrush.  Please let us know if you’re available so we can plan accordingly.  As always, if you have any friends in Year 1 or 2 who may be interested in playing, please invite them down so they too can enjoy the fun.
