A game of two halves!
It was clear from the outset that Fall Bay were a very, very well disciplined team. They were very well organised in defence and knew how to attack too. We were up against it first half and found it difficult to cope with the varied tactics of Fall Bay. Sometimes they pick and drove through the middle, sometimes they took the ball wide and tested us there. We found it difficult to cope with this and as a result, went in at the break 4 tries to 2 down.
After giving the boys three points to tighten up on; first up tackles, pushing up and putting Fall Bay under pressure, and running onto the ball not taking it standing still, they boys set out on the biggest comeback they have ever staged.
We were particularly pleased they raised their game. First up tackles were more aggressive, pressure on the Fall Bay players was big, and we were putting more pace on the game with our runs. There are also signs of players using their rugby brains and passing the ball to players who are in more space; this is the way forward for the WildCats!
At the final whistle, the score was WildCats 7, Fall Bay 4 (we scored 5 unanswered tries second half - credit to the whole team for this!)
Our tries were scored by; Sam, Cam (2), Ike, Ethan and Luca (3).
Well done boys, a real team effort today - you all had to listen and use the tactics given to you and responded brilliantly!
