Under 12s home v Tondu

With Kenfig Hill choosing not to play us, the rearranged fixture was against Tondu. A warm sunny day at the Ivor Fields, perfect conditions, but only 17 available from our squad of 23 due to various injuries. From Tondu's kick off, they exerted some early pressure which was eventually rewarded with a try, despite some good committed defending from our team, 5-0 to the visitors. Our boys came back bravely though and, having worked their way up the pitch through the forwards, some fine passing from the backs saw Dexter Hart go over in the right hand corner, the conversion from Finley Thomas hitting the post, 5-5 at half time. We were a little unlucky to go a try down just into the second half, our forwards going backwards in our 25 and the ball spilled and fell kindly to one of their players to pop over the line, the conversion in front of the posts making it 12-5 to Tondu. The game went back and forth and our team showed some real guts today against a big Tondu side and, indeed, it was their tallest player (at 6ft!) who finished off a nice move by the visitors, 19-5 to Tondu at the end. Having lost heavily to them in January, this was a much more pleasing performance, and a game in which I felt the scoreline flattered the visitors somewhat, well done Badgers!
