U9 Match Report 26 April

For first game the boys played well and was an even game as both teams were very committed. Some good passages of play and good to see the fitness levels are steadily improving. Jack S was starting to hit his straps again with Ronan and Blaise having good solid games. Special mention to Jackson in his first game with us and to Ryan and Bowde for being enthusiastic reserves that did manage to get on in the second half of the first game. Well done boys and keep on going forward. For second game, a tough afternoon at the office. When we did have the ball in our hands we looked good, however the second Brothers team were full of running. Our boys are starting to get used to playing on the larger fields and in different positions and this will stand them in good stead as they get older. Thanks to little Jack E, Ryan and Jett for filling in positions they are not used to. Much appreciated boys. Special mention to Matt Moore for some super tackling (great shoulder work), Joey for running the ball straight up every time and to Jackson who was injured nearly getting hit first try. Remember all boys, defense is fun. Cheers Mark D
