U.13A Won 11-0
It was a fantastic team effort from the U.13 A team on Wednesday against St Neot’s. Daneshill won the physical battle at the breakdown and in the tackle area, which ultimately gave them the platform to finish off some excellent tries. I was particularly happy to see that the team were able to build some phases of play together by carrying the ball in the middle of the pitch, and then successfully move the ball out to the wider channels and finish off some great scores. It is now important Daneshill continue to develop by understanding when it is the right time to compete at the breakdown area, and when is it more important to set the defensive line early. A great start to the season so far, well done.
U.13 B W 20 – 10
The U.13 Bs put in a sterling performance to beat St Neot’s. Daneshill were in the ascendancy for the first half with some strong, direct running resulting in us gaining good territory and we went into the break 2 tries up. The second half saw an improved St Neot’s side and we had to show great grit and determination to withstand a flurry of action on our try line. Despite some heroic defence, we did concede two tries but with the game very much in the balance Nicholas T delivered two runaway tries which saw us victorious at the final whistle. Well done boys – you should be very proud of your efforts and the resilience that you showed.
U.11 A W 25 – 0
The U11A’s did themselves proud today against St Neots. From the outset we were more physical, more hungry and better organised. This manifested itself into a well deserved victory. William B was lethal in the tackle and he was supported particularly well by Henry, Rupert and Charlie. But, really, it was great to see all of the boys in the team getting stuck into their tackles and taking the fight to St Neot’s. This was a factor their coach commented upon after the game; it is fair to say he was mightily impressed. Well done, the U11A’s.
The U.10 B team played with a real sense urgency today. The tackling was fierce, with boys such as Ethan, Charlie and Jack adding to the brutality of James! We are starting to see the rewards of running straight too and looking for the easy offload in the tackle area; which we used to great effect in tricky conditions. James was outstanding in the rucks and secured countless possession for us all to use. Two wins out of two; well done.
