Aberavon Match Report
14 WildCats made the long trip from Mumbles to Aberavon this morning. We arrived to find quite a narrow pitch, which seemed to stiffle our open fast runners. Aberavon set their stall out, they had some big lads and tactically they enjoyed the "pick and drive" game, with little ball going out wide. This proved to once more test out tackling and defending skills and for long periods of the game, we were magnificent in these areas. When attacking, we created some great tries with some lovely build up play.
Try scores for the WildCats were Josh R (2), Ethan, Tom H and Dylan (2). The Green Stars scored 8, to make the final score 8-6 to the Green Stars.
We look forward to a return fixture later in the season.
Exciting news for the team. We have an invite to Bristol next Sunday to play Clifton RFC. It's a bit of a trek, but a chance to get out of the usual routine for the Wildcats. A mini tour, against English opposition, and with English rules - which means rucking and mauling for the boys!
Clifton RFC is right on Crib's Causeway. It will take about 90 mins to drive to on a Sunday morning. Obviously there is a chance of shopping at Cribs's Causeway / Bristol centre / Zoo etc if anyone wants to make a full day of it. We will aim to assemble at about 10:30. And to kick off at about 11:30. We'll go back to clubhouse afterwards and be done by about 1:00. We are looking forward to a warm welcome.
Teamer invites have been sent out. Once we know numbers we will plan transport. We can't have a big coach, but we will look into minibus options if possible. We expect some people will prefer to drive, but hope that any cars going up will offer car share if they can. Have a think and if you accept the teamer invite then please e-mail me with preferred transport option:
I would like to drive, and have xxx spaces in the car / I would like to go on mini bus if possible and there will be xxx of us travelling.
