This time around, the A team got off to a particularly poor start and at half time the score was 5-1 to St Johns and the game was looking out of reach. With a gentle reminder of all the basics at half time, the second half got underway with a little more vigor! Henry was a one man tackling machine and both Ben and Jake were able to effectively attack St John's with ball in hand. There was a significant improvement in general team play and there was a glimmer of hope that these boys have the capabilities of becoming a fine rugby team. The final score 8-8. A much improved second half by Dame B's showed what we are capable of but such a slow start to the game cost us!
In an entertaining match, the B team, lost by the smallest margin to St John's. The match was played at a fast pace and the team in possession inevitably scored due to some weak tackling.
Dame B's must remember that in rugby tackling is not an option, it is a necessity. Theo C played well in attack and was man of the match. Final score St John's B 11 - 10 Dame B's.
Well played to all of the boys.
