U10B Rugby against Beaudesert
It was pleasing to see this group in action again after the break and get back into the tackling, passing and moving. Everything seems a little easier at home; the pitch is familiar, there’s more time for a warm up and it’s less of a problem if you forget your mouth guard. The Beaudesert boys started strongly and they had someone called Baz who could run quickly with the ball and score many tries. Abberley had the slight advantage with a larger squad and therefore fresher legs as Mr Gartrell gave the boys a taste of the big time with two 20-minutes halves of action. Half time came and the scores were close. Dylan and Lawson were tackling enthusiastically and making a bit of a difference for us by disrupting the Beaudesert flow. In fact, everyone was tackling well; Josh and Alex both got down low while William, Guy and Gabriel put their quick feet to good use by scoring some tries. Lewis came on in the second half and Abberley just edged it in an entertaining contest that was close all the way and featured no less than 20 scores.
