With a full complement of players for the first time this season, we had to keep the changes flowing at the end of every quarter and kids did well to keep up the momentum through the match.
There's been lots of good spells of rugby today from both sides, with the away team taking an advantage after retaining possession and working up the pitch. Judes stuck to the task and forced their way back in to the match getting back within one score of the opposition.
Players of the match
Adam - Jayden for some great efforts in defence and some strong runs in attack.
Chris - Oscar, captain for the day after coming back from an enforced layoff, played really well and showed grit and determination when it mattered.
Michael - Archie, as someone who has been a different player since coming back from Christmas break, put in another strong and determined performance.
Opposition - Joey for a really strong performance in defence and attack throughout the match helping keep his team in the game.

|Sunday, 20 March 2022||15's||West Bank||Home||16-18||Judes took on West Bank at the meadows today knowing they would have a game on their hands .|
1st half was end to end stuff with both teams showing some great skill but the 1st try went to Judes . West Bank came back hard and Judes matched it with some great defence but a penalty or 2 put Judes on the back foot and West Bank scored . Tempers frayed a little and a few handbags from both sides but then they carried on playing good rugby .
2nd half was much of the same but in the end it was West Bank who came out with the win .
Game ended 16-18
MOM by us Alfie T and Jaiden

Thatto heath start with the ball with some excellent runs taking them over the try line twice in the first 10 minutes excellent game play from the Under 7’S.
Jude’s turn to run with the ball and Jackson does a great run but is unfortunate to be caught. Finley P gets us past the half way line for Josh to take the ball and get us us so close to a try but he was just short of the try line.
Second half Carter does a fantastic run getting us past the half way mark, Harry M was exceptional and got us so close but Theo takes it over the line for another try from Judes.

|Sunday, 20 March 2022||7's||Accrington Wildcats||Home||32-32||Judes VS Wildcats|
Start of the game started very serious with a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors to determine who had the ball and Judes had the Upper hand and Joseph choose to start with the ball.
Some excellent runs from Harry M and he goes over the try line starting us off. Judes manage to keep the Wildcats out for now. Josh again with his speed and power does a excellent try saving tackle. Excellent play from the Under 7’s.
Theo does an amazing run and gets us within reach of the try line, Joseph tried so hard to get it over the line but just short of a few yards but he plays the ball and Carter takes it over the line.
Wildcats off to a great start with brilliant run and over the line he goes.
George S runs really, We are so close to the line. Theo gets the ball and off he goes over the line again. Excellent defence from Judes.

It was an early start today for our 2nd game of the season. After our match being cancelled last week we were eager to get back to playing.
It was a very close game throughout with no more than a try between the 2 teams. But with a great defence and a determined attack we managed to just take the lead at the end.
Both teams played very well and everyone put 100% into the game.
Well done Golds.
