U12 Roses 21 January 2024
Our 9 girls were grouped with 3 from Cleckheaton today. First up we faced Sandal plus a couple from West Leeds. We dominated from the start with off loads at the tackle on the back of great direct running, and some excellent tackling which almost always ended up with us driving the opposition off the ball and wining back possession. We finished the game with 6 tries to Sandal’s 2.
We were then asked to play again immediately, going up against a fresh Pontefract team with 4 girls from Crocs. The Pontefract/Crocs girls put up a stiffer resistance, but in the end our superior rucking, tackling, off loading and even popping the ball to supporting players (thanks to Anayah for completing the full set from coaching), resulted in a solid 4 tries to 2 victory.
The most important thing about today’s rugby was clearly the way which our girls enjoyed all aspects. Please pass on my thanks to all the girls today – they were amazing.
