Badgers back with a BANG!!

Pontyclun RFC u8s v Cowbridge RFC u8s

The longest 3 months of the year were finally over yesterday as the new rugby season finally started! The Pontyclun under 7s began their foray into under 8s life against a Cowbridge outfit who also boasted a very good win record from the previous year.

We have been working on defensive positioning in training with the boys having individual positions when tagging, which was put in great effect during the matches.

A slow start for the boys on the far pitch offensively during their first matches, where they were half asleep didn’t stop them from gaining an overall advantage of 25-17 on the scoreboard.

Steve and Neil both commented on the boys exceptional tagging, plenty of 6 tag sets with some brilliant last tag try savers being the particular highlight. On top of the tagging display the support play and passing was noted to be fantastic. Some brilliant running from the boys kept the score ticking over! Individual game scores were

On the first pitch the boys first 2 performances can only be described as OUTSTANDING. Probably the best 2 separate games I have seen them play. The running, offloading and passing belayed the boys young age. In defence they were relentless and caused the poor Cowbridge boys so many problems which led straight to tries. By mid second game they simply didn’t want the ball and only scored when the ref awarded them 2 tries after 6 tags had been made. This didn’t deter the young badgers who simply got the ball and went straight up the other end and scored. A Brilliant performance. Individual game scores were
