Respect for Armistice Day all round
By Mike House
Great morning of rugby, great spirit from U13's
St Brendans arrived at Clifton in glorious weather for a triangular fixture with Clifton and Cleve. We played 20 min games and the whole squad played with great attitude and commitment.
In the first game against Cleve both teams played entertaining rugby. St Brendans scrum was very strong and the forwards went well generally with good mauling and counter rucking . Jack F scored the only try of the game .
The backs all played well with Kian running strong. We lost Seb early after he had put in a couple of strong tackles.
After a break for the Commemorative Service Clifton beat Cleve and then we played against Clifton.
In a hard fought win against a strong Clifton pack we squeezed a result by 2 tries to 1. Our rucking was excellent and we played with width again. Kian scored 2 tries in a man of the match performance. It was a great squad performance, direct running, good handling and some deft offloads.
Coaches were very happy. I was a little worried though during the bumps!
Thank you to Clifton for hosting us for a great morning of rugby all round!
