Under 12s away v Caerphilly 12 March

A warm welcome from Caerphilly, as usual, and early pressure from the home side was met with a resolute defence from our team. From a resulting penalty to us, Corey Watkin popped the ball to Rhys Thomas, who ran through two players in our 25 and then the remainder of the pitch to score a fine individual effort, converted by Finley Thomas, 7-0 to the visitors early on. We then maintained some pressure of our own and to be fair to Caerphilly, they also defended well. Eventually however, from a scrum, the ball went to Finley Thomas in the outside half position, who dummied the defence and passed out to Ioan Ayres who in turn popped the ball to Dexter Hart to score on the left, to make it 12-0 at half time. Finley Thomas was having one of his best games at outside half and kicked well for position from a penalty early in the second half and, from the resulting line out, there was another nice back move as he passed out to Dexter Hart and then onto Rhys Thomas on the left wing, who again showed his great pace to go past the defence and cut in under the posts, the conversion making it 19-0. The final and possibly the best try came just before the end of the match, the forwards dominant yet again in a scrum, the ball flowing left along the line from Daniel Enoch to Finley Thomas, Ioan Ayres, Dexter Hart and on to Kieran Hamer on the left wing to score for his second match in a row! The conversion wasn't successful so the final score 24-0 to the Badgers. A hard-fought game up front by the unsung heroes, who created a platform for the backs to show off in space, well done to the whole team, and a nicely played game by both teams.
