Old Cats visit the Rec but go away with nothing
First win of the season and another great performance
Another great performance from the boys today who are playing some excellent Rugby.
After 2 defeats we were looking for the win today and found it with some great play.
With a good contingent of first XV players, fresh from their league win yesterday, supporting from the sidelines, the boys did the basics well and kept their discipline against a good Cats side.
The score line does not do justice to the quality of their play and they gave us a stern test.
The 9, 10 combination of Harry and Alex is improving every game and although it was a day for breaking the line their link play from forwards to backs was great.
There were some bruising tackles coming in from both sides all over the pitch but mostly the play was dominated by the forwards who put in a massive shift.
Special mentions to Captain Callum E who broke through rucks like they weren’t there and generously gave up the ball in a maul for Alex P to score (not sure I’d have let go of it in the same situation!), Bobby again tackling like a monster as was Jacob.
Leon and Micheal as a great centre partnership today may have William worried for his spot in the team. Callum B, back from injury ran like his hair was on fire for his 2 tries.
On a day where tackling was to the fore, man of the match went to Rohin, although his colourful trousers probably warranted a forfeit!
It was a great match to watch with some brilliant Rugby which impressed all those watching.
Let’s keep going forward and win our next games.
