U13s Win Handsomely against Long Eaton


See Photo Album

A welcome home game at the MSP saw nearly a full squad of players arrive this morning for a localish match against Long Eaton.

Whilst the weather was slightly inclement, the boys had a welcome addition of Michael to mentor and add his experience to the team.

A washed up fishing net played part of a varied warm-up that ensured the boys got in a good low tackling position.

Melbourne started well, and the coaches were really pleased with the off-loads and attacking space that culminated in early tries.

The game ebbed and flowed and there were many changes in personnel throughout the rest of the game.

I thought the boys all played well and showed real maturity, support and commitment to the Melbourne badge.

Highlights from my perspective,

- debut from Mat "one T"

- ball carries and nearly a try from Jack G.

- Wainy going nearly the length of the pitch for his first try for a while

- Alfie back on the score sheet

- Will listening and trying to give that score making try

Thanks to all the parents, players and coaches for today.

It's what rugby is all about!
