U11s vs Hackney Bulls
By Helen Willingham
Our guys played a great game!
We were especially proud of their courage in the tackle against a strong team. As coaches we have some really good things to take away and build on. We felt that in particular the 2 tries Max scored were well worked.
Our guys played some of the best rugby we have all year. If there’s one thing Hackney did better than us today, it was passing and retaining the ball. They just didn’t drop anything! At times we got isolated on breakaways, we need to work on going in together, our spatial awareness and relying on our team.
But overall positive, we were impressed with Connor today, Noe was brilliant at the back too and a first run out for Theo, where he showed great commitment in the centre (when he wasn’t on the wing.)
We just need to tighten things up and focus on positioning and passing / not passing when appropriate
