The boys really stepped up this morning to play Pencoed, always an outstanding Junior Club side. Led from the front by Captain of the day Cameron, the Wildcats took an early lead but finally went down fighting 7-8. Everyone got involved in the best performance of the season so far. This week we are introducing player of the week awards. This is not just for scoring tries, but for tagging, fair play, enthusiasm, staying in line, positioning and listening to the coaches. The inaugural awards go to Luca for an overall tagging and running performance, and to Dylan for the champagne moment of the match: a diving try saving tag in the corner. Also mentioned in dispatches are Cathy and Jill for organising the hotdogs at the cricket club. Special thanks to Chris from Pencoed for making the journey and instilling an excellent spirit in their team (and the ability to bounce back from a few knocks!) Unfortunately we don't have a return match organised for this season, but it is certainly a fixture we look forward to arranging again in the future.
