Match Report
Bilton Grange Boys-U9A vs  Grace Dieu Manor School
On: Thursday, 26 Sep 2019
Venue: at Home

This afternoon's performance demonstrated that focussed, determined practice leads to success in match situations. Last week the team was guilty of holding back in defence and letting their opponents get their speed up before attempting the tackle. This week the defence came up quickly and put immediate pressure upon their opposite number.

Offensively we were fantastic. A more organised shape at the free pass meant that runners knew where their support was and passes were safely made. Direct running, rather than crabbing sideways, allowed us to play our attacking game close to the opponents line.

Despite the hot weather the boys never let up the intensity of their play and finished the game very strongly. This was a super 'team' performance and builds a platform from which to develop new skills and tactics.

Tries were scored by Hugo (5), Harry (4) and Rayyan (4)
