2nd matchHitchin   v   Royston    (45-0) 

Key moments: Strong tackling by Clemance stopped Royston scoring twice , later she ran the entire length of the pitch to score herself. Harry L ripped the ball from a maul, was able to start the long run before anyone responded and was very unfortunate to be pushed into touch just feet from the try line.

Players of the week: Josh Platt for his sheer determination, seizing every opportunity.                        Jessica for successfully completing her first match! 


Comments from Rob: I was very pleased with the amount of pressure we were able to exert on the opposition from a high defensive line and players running onto the ball from our set piece and breakdowns. Two points to work on are, a) supporting the attacking runner and therefore the ball and b) completing the tackle, too many times we were pushing\barging the opposition into touch. Please remember that a tackle consists of driving in with the shoulder and wrapping round with the arms. One last point was ‘jumping into contact’ with the ball. I consider this dangerous play and will be telling referees to penalise it immediately. It is dangerous to the tackler as they can be caught by your knees or boots and it is very dangerous for you as you can be knocked 360 degrees in the air (lets not give Nick James and unnecessary work)!
