Two very tough opposition teams so the temptation would have been to get demoralised. However, what were both physical encounters, the boys held their own in contact and rucked well. Scrums were better contested and it was lovely to get Cole and Tim out for their debuts. Still a tendency to miss tackle number one and we ended up trying to play going backwards. With the word “forward” in their heads after half time, they played a lot better with more control and commitment but were just outgunned. Next steps are to focus on tackling other players away from a Games session and also working on space awareness and where the ball goes off set play. However, going forward they looked awesome – they just didn’t do it enough!
