Dings win convincingly!
By Mike House
U13 showed great character!
Our first visit to Dings new home ground was a revelation as to what a state of the art modern facility looks like.
We lost 13-2 but the match was more competitive than the score suggests. Our team played well and did not let the heads go down. Dings’s pack was stronger and this put our forwards onto the back foot. They also had some large agile fast backs who were able to make very penetrating runs. When we moved the ball wide and found space we looked threatening; however, we failed to make enough of the breaks and lost too much of the ball in contact.
All the boys played out of their skins and it was a true testament of their character!
Dings were a large squad and this allowed them to rotate players; whereas, we had no substitutes and grew more tired through the match. Sportingly Dings let us players to fill in gaps.
We look forward to the return fixture later in the season.
