Xmas Gower Rugby Report
Thanks to our generous Fall Bay hosts (and excellent ref!) and with help from the South Gower coaches, the Wildcats were able to play 2 long matches this morning, meaning that everyone had loads of quality game time. This made all the difference as the boys could settle in to the match situation properly - either that or they have been listening in training! Whatever it was, right from the start there was another improved performance. Just look at that defensive line....
All the boys deserve a mention in dispatches. Ed for no nonsense straight running, Duncan, Dylan, Matz and Cam for getting stuck right in, shaking off nasty knocks and bleeding for the cause, the defensive line marshalled by Jamie and Sam and constant support play of Ike and Tom R. Tom Charles captained the side and takes champagne moment for finishing off a flowing move in the corner and Arthur takes player of the week for all round contribution including lots of tries. For the record, with the Mumbles Pirates (under 8s) absent this weekend the boys took on a mixed South Gower side (8s and 7s), and, by the end, the Fall Bay under 8s side. The boys have started playing as a team and making more decisions on the pitch. All the parents should be proud of the boys' achievements this term.
Next Sunday - Training. Venue and time to be confirmed.
