2nd Leauge Game Against Uckfield
Keep up the hard work as the results are speaking for themselves
Well done to all the boys on Sunday. Everyone arrived on time, and we got stuck straight into a warm up. The warm up, started at a blistering pace with speed of ball passing and hard tackling impressing all coaches. There were a few concerns expressed by our team at the size of Uckfield pack, but these were quickly batted down by coach Adrian!
As the game started, it quickly became apparent that Uckfield lacked the ability to pass the ball around their backs. The first try came early from Harry P, as he sliced through their defenses. As more Edenbridge tries rolled in, their tackling also showed up some of their key weaknesses. The third try, came from an impressive kick up the line by Harry P, which Ben A chased down the wing, to scope up running at full pace to score. The first half finished at 25-0 to us.
The second half opened with Uckfiled stepping up. Their large forwards showing great aggression in the scrum and winning a number of the Edenbridge balls. On the 3rd scrum, Ben W then started to show his strength with the rest of the pack and once again Edenbridge came out on top.
This was a great demonstration of team playing, with everyone getting involved. Mikey and Finn nearly scoring on several separate occasions. Edenbridge tackling was robust and Uckfield never threatened the Edenbridge 22yd line.
Final score line of 65-0 (13 tries). Man of the match went to Charlie. Having not played scrum half before, he stepped up and had a very impressive game!
Well done everyone!
Thx coach Adrian and Tim.
