HRFC U10 - Finchley club visit
#fortnite #strongopposition #fightingspirit
Close to 20 kids this morning in Finchley, securing 2 strong teams to play 2 teams each from Tabard and the locals.
A short training session and 3 matches for each of our two teams , 2 x6 min each.
Many takeaways from this visit, as witnessed by the messages between coaches on our private Whatsapp group this afternoon.
We did win all our matches, for an aggregate score of 34 to 11 tries, .. but this was much harder than the score suggests.
Well done kids, you have displayed some great rugby.
We have witnessed:
- Great team spirit from our kids, who were respectful, happy to play together, and less emotional than in other occasions
- Great tackling on our side, but actually also by the other teams,
- We do have great runners, still one of our major strengths,
What we ll be working on :
- We need to clear out the rucks quicker and more effectively – our experts are preparing some drills,
- We will emphasize the role of the scrumhalf during these sequences,
- We need to protect the ball more effectively during mauls, am rucks,
- Not enough passing, and especially passing before contact,
- Not using the space enough,
Final scores – unaudited:
Hampstead 4 - Tabard A 2
Hampstead 8 - Finchley A 4
Hampstead 6 - Tabard B 2
Team “orange justice”
Hampstead 5 - Finchley B 1
Hampstead 4 - Tabard B 1

Tom obviously knows all fortnite funny dances, this proved useful during our warmup session. Hope we have some on the rolls.
See you on the pitch next Saturday as usual.
