Enjoyment all round - excellent team play
By Alan Erskine
Long journey south for a great game of rugby
End to end stuff in Chichester today with ‘Bridge having much of the possession and territory.
Forwards were strong and the back line lightning fast which put Chichester on the back foot.
Unusually, ‘Bridge started hard and fast and this set the tone for the rest of the game.
With many players from both sides being videoed for their GCSE PE, it was obvious that they wanted to shine for their examiners.
Tries for Ciaran, Jordan and Jack exposed the Chi flanks and there were at least 2 more which we couldn’t quite finish.
Everyone played with passion and heart, playing for each other in a manner which has been growing all season and is great to see.
A man of the match performance from Bobby, leading tackler of the season and managing to complete a game without a knock to the head!
Outstanding performances from Ciaran, Jack, Harry, Jacob and Will really put the opposition under pressure enabling everyone else to provide vital support.
Bobby was even heard to remark that Kevin made a big tackle! Well done Tom! (on their Number 8 as well - talk about setting the bar high. He was huge!)
It has been a pleasure to coach you all this season so far. Get rested over Christmas, watch Rugby, keep fit (watch the mince pie count!) and we can kick on in 2019 with the elusive win you so richly deserve.
Ps watch this space for pizza night on Nick!
