In the second of our two games on Sunday we were faced with a much bigger team from Dukinfield. They had some powerful strike runners and a few players who were unaware of the offside rule. However, we played them tight up front and let the backs take them on at pace. For the first time ever, we called a dummy play with (no instructions from the sideline) from a free kick and it worked to create probably the try of the season so far for our newest recruit.
All in all a powerful performance of rugby against a big fast team. It was great to get back to winning ways.
A good win against a spirited ToCH and Broughton Park side. We made hard work of our one try, but ToCH didn’t get out of their own half for most of the game. Again a dominant pack creating a solid platform for the backs to run. Tackling from ToCH/Broughton was what kept them in the game. I’m always impressed with the tackling skills of some teams. Their defense kept us honest but fortunately we managed to secure a win with a very well worked try.
