1st League match Under 13's
Great Game Keep It Up
The U13 s started their Sussex League account yesterday with a 7-4 try winner over East Grinstead at the Rec.
After a decent warm up the boys took on board a rallying and rousing speech from Adrian prior to the game which focused the boys to the game ahead . This all paid dividends as Samuel HARTLEY and Harry Pluck ran in tries within the first 10 minutes as the Bridge dominated possession . As East Grinstead found their feet and started to get into the game , they pulled a try back before Mr Pluck then ran in 3 further tries although EG scored again just before half time . With the score at 5-2 the second half was slightly more even as Harry scored his fifth try and Archie Proctor scored although the opposition scored 2 late tries for the eventual 7-4 result.
East Grinstead although short on numbers were well drilled and organised but the Bridge when focused and doing what was required played well . Still lots to work on at training with our structure, formation and positioning at rucks paramount as we will certainly get punished against better teams . Overall a great squad performance with the forwards all putting in great effort especially in the scrum where we looked strong and steady . Ben WHITTINGTON carried and tackled well and was awarded man of the match .
Big thank you as always to Dom, Tim and Adrian and to you all for your support
