|Sunday, 3 April 2022||10's - Golds||Woolston Rovers||Away||26 - 30||Our first away game of the season.|
The first half started well but as decisions and tries didn't go our way we started to let our heads drop. By half time we were 4 tries down.
After an encouraging half time talk we went back on as a different team. Everyone played well and our defence was amazing. To finish the game with just 1 try difference showed the hard work we put in, even the opposition were amazed at how well you all stuck together to pull back the scores.
Well done to you all!

|Sunday, 3 April 2022||18's||Clockface Miners||Away||36-10||Judes travelled over to Clockface Miners in the first round of the Lancashire Cup. A must win game today due to knock-out cup rugby, proved to be a much tougher game than we thought. Judes should have been 3 tries to the good first half, but each effort went against us, first Daniel going over, but pulled for a foot in touch, Brook next over the line, but held up and Jack jinking in and getting over the whitewash, only to be pulled for an obstruction. Was it going to be one of those games, where the 4 points just wouldn’t come?|
Judes started to play a bit smarter and putting ball through hands, got the ball to Brogan at centre who showed strength to go over in the corner. Clockface replied almost immediately and a Judes knock-on gave them the position needed to pull a try back, a successful conversion put them in the lead 6-4. Big D from Kenzie D motivated the lads and after a good deep kick from Roman, Judes trapped Clockface deep in their own half and set us up nicely for our next attacking set. Jack set off, looking sure to break through, but good defence brought Jack down momentarily, but he managed to somehow get the ball away to Brogan who went over for his second of the game and got us back to a slight lead of just 2 at half time.
The half time talk must have been about better execution, respecting the ball and completing our sets, Judes didn’t disappoint and came out more clinical second half. We soon got our attack back on track and after a turnover by Clockface, again we keep it simple and play the ball out to Daniel, who did hesitate, but showed illusive footwork, to speed round the defender and score his first of the game. A good break by Calum P, who’d done his bit to punch holes through the middle today, opened up the defence and managed to get the ball to Tom A who was on a barnstorming run and no stopping him from that range, pounced over to score his first of the season. Judes really ramped up the pressure and were looking to improve their score. A cheeky chip over from our Man of the Match Roman Shanks, almost culminated in another 4 pointer in the corner, unfortunately the ball just eluded Lukas. Strong defence from Judes force Clockface into touch and although we were deep in our own half, Brogan broke the defence and got the ball out to Daniel on his wing, who this time backed himself, out-running everyone and had enough left in the tank to bring the ball under the sticks for an easier conversion for Callum S.
Judes seemed to go a little quieter in defence and out of nowhere Clockface end up over the line at the other end bringing the score to 10-22, pulling Clockface back into the game. Clockface were their own work enemy though at times, they let their frustrations overflow, which saw their prop leave the field for 10 for dissent. Judes then showed good shape towards the Clockface line and our opponents just ran out of bodies on the wing and Daniel took full advantage to record his well deserved hattrick. Judes set up again and sent the ball right to left, was touched by a Clockface player, which gifted us another 6 close to their line. Up stepped our hooker Logan, who sneaked his way through the defence, copped a high shot, but still managed to get the ball down and score his first of the new season. Our final try came from a superb individual effort from Calum P, who’d had a strong game throughout and pushed tackler after tackler off until he was clear to the line to score a well deserved try. Converted by Callum S, saw the game come to an end with a hard fought win 10-36.
A fantastic win in the end for the boys, putting them in the next draw for the cup. I think we could have had more tries first half if we’d executed slightly better, but an excellent attacking second half saw some awesome tries and lovely to see some of the lads getting on the score-board for the first time this season. All credit to Clockface who put in a determined performance today, made it difficult for us in all areas. Let’s keep this momentum going lads, we’ve made a solid start to our season, let’s keep building, restricting those points against and recording more decent wins, Well Done!!
