The War of The Roses
What a setting!!!
Our U14s enjoyed a fabulous tour, despite England rugby again managing to lose, though the United and Everton fans enjoyed Saturday lunchtime. Enough said about that, Sunday lunchtime was of far more importance, than Saturday’s curtain raisers!
We couldn’t have asked for a more picturesque setting to play Rugby, with a big thanks to Huddersfield, for pulling all the stops out to make sure we got a game. It was a hard fought encounter, with credit to Huddersfield for a solid defence certainly in the early exchanges, something which was matched, if not bettered by our lads.
Again the team made positive steps in their development, with a clear style of Rugby starting to emerge. They have continued the high level of intensity they showed against Fylde and Tarleton. Another area of their positive development, was highlighted by the performances of those players pushing for cup team places, this was backed up by quality performances for those more established cup team players, their consistency is awesome. A healthy headache for selection is the future, and the coaches welcome that competition within the team.
It was this intensity that was the key to an impressive 5-34 win for us, our lads maintained it, whilst Huddersfield’s waned. A raft of substitutions at halftime didn’t effect that intensity, and repeating the efforts of The house of Lancaster 533 years before, we put the House of York to the sword.
Well done lads, keep it up!
