On: Wednesday, 31 Oct 2018
Venue: at Home

Vs Witham Lost 25-0 Strong opposition but we showed determined effort to tackle. Unfortunately had little ball but worked hard to make the opposition work for every try. Vs Brooke Won 15-0 Boys worked hard together. Enjoyed the game more with more ball. Hard running from Alex, Owen and Seb. Edward was the star of the game, courageous in defence and placed massive pressure on the opposition. Vs LG Lost 25-0 A good game with a poor score. We were competitive in most areas. Tackled well, kept the ball and used it effectively. A little bunched but keen to fight for the ball. Key area of weakness was falling short with first time tackling and letting LG pass without the pressure. On a cold afternoon at Brooke Priary the Oakham under 11 squad set off to have a few amazing games of Rugby. Some highlights were Ben''s cover tackling, Edward''s forwards drive and Matt''s low position in the ruck. Alex''s kick''s drove opponents back, which were chased by Seb and Owen, pushed them back 30 yards. After a knock-on, Max''s sturdy scrumaging and Lloyd''s great placement [ as scrum-half] helped win the scrum. Once out, Jack made a fantastic pass into space, which helped Sam to push forward supported by Jonathan and Josh. When the ball was lost, George''s and Seb Poulter''s tackles made sure they didn''t gain ground. with encouragement and tactics from Joe the team successfully beat Brooke Priary and came close to the rest. This quadrangular showcased the improvement made by the squad under the coaching of Mr Vandoroos. by Seb and Owen It was great to see all the boys get a chance to play. It was great that they all gave it a real go. I am proud of their efforts and where they have come from... Well done boys...
