Morriston and Aberavon
Thanks go first to our visitors for making the trip to Bishopston and providing a sunny morning of good rugby for everyone. Two teams we are more than happy to cross swords with again later in the season. All the coaches are very pleased with the boys' continued development and total commitment. Special praise to the defensive effort keeping Morriston out for so long, and to the all round performance against a very strong Aberavon Green Stars side. We want all the boys to get involved and contribute and it speaks for the effort across the whole squad that we can field two teams that are able to compete so well.
There was a Mumbles debut today for Josh, following in his Dad's formidable Mumbles Rugby footsteps, and we welcome back Connor after his moonlighting as the Wales football mascot! Lloyd and Tom R took scrum half duties today and again the tries were shared out between lots of players, with Tom R and Tom C crossing the line in some style. Play of the day goes to Jacob and Duncan for a lovely move that rewarded their support work and quick passing into space out of the tag.
Thanks to John for being dragged into action running behind the team. You may have seen that Matthew has been helping with the 7s on match days, so we will be calling on the parents for a little help during the matches when Mike and Ian are busy. Volunteers welcome.
