|Sunday, 27 June 2021||Under 8's - Golds||Wigan St Patricks||Away||X X||A tough game today for the kids against a team who was our last opponents before lockdown started last year.|
The kids worked hard throughout, scoring some good tries, making some good tackles and showing determination.
Trophies today from me went to Joey for some great tackling efforts and grabbing a few tries.
The opposition trophy went to Zaine for some good tackling efforts along either some tries and keeping going throughout.
A special mention to Jayden today who played his first ever match today, straight in with his first tackle and made some runs and some good passes too.
|Sunday, 27 June 2021||Under 18's||Halton Farnworth Hornets||Away||6-26||Today we had it tough being low on numbers and only one sub. We looked sharp and switched on from the off and were the first to cross the line after a strong set, Ryan got his hands on the ball and using his pace and fierce footwork, buzzed around till he found the gap to score. A great conversion nailed by Callum, gave us an early lead.|
The lead was short lived though when the restart was touched by our player and went over the side-line, giving Halton ball very close to our line. Judes did try their best to keep Halton out, but to no avail as they crash over to score. The conversion was missed, so we were still in the lead by 2, but Judes being pulled offside twice in the set doesn’t help and Halton took full advantage of the gifted territory, catching our defence lacking on the wing and creating space to go over. Another missed conversion nudged Halton in front 8-6. The next period of the game was a bit sloppy from both sides and Judes had a couple of chances that they should have converted into points.
Halton reached the end of their set and put a long grubber kick in on the last, again we don’t handle the kick well and Halton make us pay for the mistake, as their player chased up and pinched the ball and darted over to score and finish the half 14-6.
We come out second half and again pulled for offside twice, these penalties just killed us today. We do work our way into Halton’s half and seem to get a shift on, but the ball goes to ground and stops any chance of converting to points. We did show some good periods of defensive pressure and snuff out a couple of Halton chances in the second half. Ryan should have got a penalty for a high shot, ripping his skull cap off in the process, instead Halton break and start passing the ball at will to get over at the other end!
A superb restart from Callum travelling over the back line forced a drop out, but we should be making more of these great chances to get us back in the race. Judes did put in some good work in D by pressuring Halton who kick out on the full, we should have been tightening the screw and pulling ourselves back into the game, instead our lads started to go down like nine pins and 1 injury followed another and another and saw us down to only 11 lads on the pitch. The effort was there to carry on with the game, but it was only going to be a matter of time before the gap opened up for Halton to score their final converted try. Judes did finish the game with a bit of flair and ended attacking close to Halton’s line, but time ran out before we could record any further points and we went down to our opponents 26-6.
It was gallant that we came and had a bash with only 14 lads and credit to them all for their efforts, especially when we went down to 11 lads and still found the character to carry on. We can score tries, we proved that at the start and if we cut down on our errors, our opponents wouldn’t be in any position to score. We need to keep that starting intensity up for the full 70 minutes.
Opposition M.O.M: Our Superstar Ryan Wood, who again took control of the game and stood out in every aspect.
We will now be selecting a player for the Coaches Player Award and this week it goes jointly to Tom Ashurst and Logan Johnson. Both these lads literally put their bodies on the line today, both getting injured in the process. They stood up and played big minutes and got through a tonne of work, so get this week’s well deserved Coaches Award.
