Rugby league Roundup Sunday 13/04/16
Home to Limehurst lions
St Annes 9 – 5 Limehurst Lions
Well what a week for this weeks Rugby league Roundup we had sickness, people leave us and skiving coaches (only joking Paul and Gaz) so Homer was left to deal with it all on his own with the help of Teabag (aka Thomas Leyland). I must say they did a great job which saw us get a win and keep the winning record against the Limehurst lions.
We have quite a few new players this season and they are all proving to be great assets to the team and we are proud that they have joined our green and gold army.
Special mention must go to Aimee Burgess who played her first game today and she certainly showed us she has what it takes to play rugby and that the sport is not only for boys. Only problem is now parents and coaches need to remember she is on the team and stop saying well done lads, although I have been assured she is happy to be one of the lads and part of the team so all is good for now.
Well onto the game, what can I say it was a cracking game we saw some of the newer players shine today, but let’s be honest they had no choice if we wanted that win as we only had 9 players to choose from but each and every one of them showed they deserved to be on that field today. Harley really made an effort this week getting stuck in with tackles and not being shy to get stuck in. He still a way to go in terms of running the ball in but he isn’t scared of being tackled and as the season goes on and he finds his inner strength and confidence he will get there and score some great try’s.
Drama well what can I say I know why he got his name he scored 2 great try’s today despite being ill earlier in the week he came out and played a great game and the best bit for me that made me proper laugh was he got tackled in the upper part of his body, granted it was hard tackle but went down screaming holding his knee, two seconds later running round like nothing had happened now that’s Drama for you. Seriously though great game by David this week some great tackles and those two brilliant try’s.
Jack had a good game he played the full 40 mins he did 16 tackles and scored a try, he is getting good at breaking through the other team and offloading right when it counts so his team mates can run that ball in which is what it’s all about team play not just one or two players scoring all the time. Jack is really getting the hang of it being a team sport and that it is just as important being able to make yards as it is to score those try’s. Very proud mum I am.
The whole team played great today, the lads who weren’t well put 100% in and tried their best the new lads and Aimee of course all showed us what they are worth and they are learning every week and are ready to smash their way through the rest of the season.
Well done everyone and especially Homer and Teabag for keeping them all organised and focused on the task in hand to secure us another win.
Man of the Match – Jacob
