We had a great welcome at Skewen, and a full squad of keen players turned up. On the small pitch, there were plenty of tries for both teams. I think in the end we came out on top by about 15 to 9. It's not easy for the ref to remember all that happened (any of the parents are welcome to submit a match report!) It was good to some some first Mumbles tries from several players (Arthur, Arjan, Tom C, Luca, Matz) some great tags from Georgia, Jamie and Connor. We played especially well when the ball went loose on the ground, with Luca, Owen and Cam doing some scavenging to force the turnover. More tries followed from Tom R, Sam, Lloyd, Cam, Miles, Ike, Dylan, Duncan. Skewen had some very strong runners. Well done Myles for taking on their strongest one-on-one, shaking off the knock he received, and getting back up to claim the tag the next time he tried it!
Next week is a scheduled match with Penclawdd. However they are yet to confirm they have a 7s. Keep checking for updates. After getting some feedback, we will continue with keeping the full squad together for the matches. If we get any bigger, we'll have a rethink. If anyone has some good photos send them to me in an e-mail (address in the welcome pack). Also if anyone has taken any video - let me know.
