Under 14 Rugby - HBAED 10 Beckenham 38

Rugby 21.1.16Our U14 rugby team have begun their first season together with a high spirited performance. Having been training twice a week in the sports hall, the boys were still very keen to get the physical side of the game up and running!

Playing an experienced Beckenham school in the Federation Cup was always going to be a tough ask, yet the boys grew in stature every minute they played, showing the potential they have in the second half.

Ferocious tackling

The game began exactly the way our year 8 team did, by conceding a soft try. The inexperience in the contact proved the key downfall initially, with the boys making contact but technically slipping away off the tackle. With their captain a very strong ball carrier, our boys struggled to contain the early exchanges and conceded three very quick tries. To the credit of our team, their heads never went down and were led by some ferocious tackling from the effervescent Joshua Miller-Jalloh. For a second row, he was everywhere and has huge potential with his 'never say die' attitude.

These huge hits sparked confidence in the HBAED boys, causing Beckenham problems before half time. With a shake-up of positions and a refreshed attitude, HBAED scored first after the break. The outstanding Neo pressured the opposition after a fantastic tackle out wide, which led to Abdul-Rasheed racing the 35m down the wing to score, even bouncing a couple of would be tacklers out of the way.

Fantastic build-up play

This try was followed-up with fantastic team build-up play. Rio crashed the ball in off a penalty, which led to five phases of play from quick recycling at the break down to give Jerry a third try of the season! Jerry was a real catalyst to the team when he came on, showing outstanding technique in the tackle, unbelievable leg drive in attack, and an outstanding enthusiasm to play.

The rest of the half was a tough affair, with both sides willing to tackle hard, run hard but all in a great spirit. Special mentions to Aaron Pike, who captained the side, led very well and caused problems for the opposition all game. Rio Williams, co-captain of the side, who held the scrum together and set-up some strong phases with his direct running. Neo for his fantastic work rate with the backs and finally Connor Forbes who came into the game more and more throughout the second half.

Well done to all boys who took part.

Mr May
