Match report Sunday 2nd December 2018 Aberdare away

Match report Sunday 2nd December 2018
 
Our first match in December and we were away in Aberdare on a wet and windy morning.
 
Our numbers were depleted following injuries to Luke, Sam Daunter, and Ashton in recent weeks, and sadly Ellis has decided to leave the group.
 
Nevertheless the boys turned up ready for a tough game against a hardy bunch of boys and girls from Aberdare. The first 10 was back and forth with both teams sizing each other up, and it took a while before our boys could get over the gain line and we did this in 12th minute with Harri Stiff cutting a fine line and crossing over under the post.
 
Then over the next 15 minuets our boys worked really hard and made the most of the pace we have in the backs and forwards. It was great to see some really good tries by Jo Trigg, Finley and Harry Moulton to finish the first half off in style.
 
To top things off Louis had his kicking boots on converting all 4 tries and taking a 0-28 lead into the second half.
 
The second half saw Aberdare come out with some real intent and for most of the half our boys were pinned back in defence. Aber had some big lads, with their number 8 hitting 14 stone and 5'10 from where I was stood! But the boys stood resolute, with some great hits by Huw, Jac, Ollie and Danny to name a few.
 
Sadly, a few of our boys came off the worse, with Daf coming off unwell, Louis with a nasty bang to the leg, Ryan with a bang to the head, and it looks like Sam Jones may have a broken thumb. At some points in the half we were down to 13 players, but the boys stood strong and defended our line to the last!
 
We did have one moment of brilliance in attack during the second half, with Harry Moulton finishing off another good move and break in the backs. This was nicely rounded off by the ever dependable Louis with the boot as he converted for a 100% record for the day!
 
Well done boys!
