U13's win away from home
By Richard Ireland
Bad weather didn't reach Coventry..........
Melbourne made the 45 mile journey to Coventry with a good turnout of 15, conditions were wet under foot with a stiff breeze but backed up with plenty of sunshine.
From the kick off Melbourne were on the front foot, players coming on to the ball from deep hitting strong lines. The chat before kick off was around us supporting the runner and looking for good off loads which credit to the lads, this was the case all morning. Pinley were strong upfront and keen to compete at the break down, so Melbourne played a clever game by getting the ball out to the backs at pace which was marshalled brilliantly all game by Charlie.
Pleasing thing today was that the boys are really starting to convert things we coach them and take it in to match day, 6/7 tries were from multiple phases of play and ball retention which was great to see! Credit to Pinley who never gave up and put in a better performance than the score line suggests. Thanks to the Mum's and Dads for their commitment on a long away day. Good performance boys!
