U9's at Liverpool Collegiate
Southport pass the college test
Cold start to what turned out to be a beautifully sunny Winters day at Old friends and rivals Collegiate.
Squad size meant coaches Steve and Andy were able to concentrate on core skills at home, whilst 15 players made the trip.
Each team played 4 matches of 10 minute duration and fantastic rugby played by both sets of players from each club.
In the 8 matches we had 3 wins for Southport, 3 for Collegiate and 2 draws - truly fantastic tackling, passing out of the tackle made for memorable tries from both sides.
Girl power ruled the day as Katie, Charlotte & Aimee showed the boys they can tackle, pass and score better than them !
Exceptional inter passing from Aimee led to 5 tries and Katie scored a hat-trick in the last match to cap off a wonderful day.
Our hosts played the game with the same values - with some great off loads piercing the Southport defence and testing the "Defensive Drift" - which held for the most part but still needs some work.
Speed and teamwork won the matches with mesmerising runs from Dominic and Nikolai resulted in brilliant tries - considering both only started playing 6 weeks ago !
Happy faces all - Teamwork Communication and Leadership on display by Lewis and Henry and topped by splendid progress from Marcus, Matty and Logan.
Players - we salute you all for entertaining us today !
Thanks to all our coaches, parents and supporters for making the trip such a splendid one !
