Match Report
Chafyn Grove Preparatory School Boys-U13A vs  Clayesmore and All Hallows
On: Saturday, 12 Oct 2019
Venue: Away

1ST XIII v Clayesmore & All Hallows (Triangulaar)

V Clayesmore Won 5-25 (Olly H (2), Austin R 3)

V All Hallows Won 5-30 (Olly H 1, Hamish McN 1, Austin R 2, Will M 1, Oliver H 1)

Another impressive outing for the 1st XIII – the opening game against Clayesmore saw the team play with good shape and width allowing the backs time and space on the ball – Olly and Austin in particular profiting from the room they were given. The second game saw All Hallows test the boys on defence, and areas of the game showed there is still work to do! Tackling was too high at times and the AH stronger runners were able to break tackles too easily on several occasions before being stopped. The forwards must also ensure they pump their legs at the rucks and the backs must also aim to maintain their depth in attack. Arguably harsh criticism after two comfortable wins – however there are tough challenges ahead with opposition who will be less forgiving! Overall – a good day and again the attitude commitment and enjoyment all stood out! MOTM – Austin for his outstanding finishing. Chafyn’s ‘Get out of jail’ card!
