Game 2 against Ashton Bears at home
Oldham St Anne’s 13 – 6 Ashton Bears
Well what a week for this weeks rugby roundup the boys have had this week not only did we win on Sunday they had a training session with some Salford Red Devils players. The boys have had a busy but exciting week.
Thursday night the boys enjoyed training with the Salford players and really got stuck into training but the presence of the stars went to their heads I think and some of the boys were a bit silly Jack included and he got three strikes in one night, yes three in one night the little monkey. We had tears and worry as he though he would the kiss the game Sunday but it was all ok he just had to sit out of Saturday’s training session. He was gutted when we arrived and all his mates started to warm up, hopefully he has learnt his lesson he certainly looked gutted to be sat out.
Sunday came though and the boys were ready nice and early yes that right nice and early, half and hour in fact because homer sent out the wrong times then come strolling along at 9.45 “I’m early what you on about” lol
The boys had been warming up for over 15 mins by this time and kick off wasn’t for another 45 mins so they took the boys in the changing rooms for a team talk and it certainly worked as the boys came out ready and focused.
Yet again this week we saw some great team work from the lads. They talked to one another, supported each other and we saw some great off loading just at the right times which created some great try’s. Shaun did a great dance before one of his try’s cheeky monkey. David was another one who stood out he scored two try’s and did some great defending and tackles using good technique.
The boys tackling is getting much better they are going round the legs and supporting each other before retreating quickly to re set the line. The game is becoming faster paced than it was last season which is great to see.
Man of the match – Max
Best tackler – Shaun
Most improved – Oscar
Well done today all the kids from 1-12 every kid got stuck and the especially the new kids who are really impressing in the how there coming on in each game,I was really impressed with our tackling once again especially on our line I think the kids realise now uve got to keep focused for 6 tackles and not just 4&5 and some the cover tackles showed that,also today I thought we showed a different side to our game with some brilliant offloads and passing to create tries for there team mates and its not just all about one out rugby,well done to MoM,tackler,most improved max,Shaun and Oscar who all had great games today anf they brought there A-game today and its awesome beating the pie eaters😂🏈.#Green&GoldArmy.COYS 🏈😊
