A muddy day to remember
By Tony Rolle
U12s Put in a 1st Class Performance
A great turnout from the squad today meant that we had subs-a-plenty. After an almost customary slow start, the boys soon realised that the conditions underground favoured a passing game. Will powered through on two occasions in the first 20 minutes to score 2 admirable solo tries, but Clevedon kept out a number of efforts and drew level with some well-worked breaks.
Following the first break, whether it was the muddy ground, the need to keep warm or the prospect of oranges, the team piled on the pressure, putting in some tremendous tackles irrespective of their opponent's size and added to the tally admirably, both through sheer determination, quick thinking. Sonny's try from the restart was a thing of wonder - only just remembering Hunty's claim that the ball travels faster than the player. Not wanting to be outdone by Jack Hobbs once again showing a clean pair of heels.
All in all and excellent performance by all. Full credit and thanks to Clevedon for a great-spirited game.
