A complete freshers team came out in full force today against Royal Vets. We made metres when the ball was in our possession however a few breaks through our defensive line from the opposition put RVC a few tries up against our single try scored by our flyhalf Lottie. Nevertheless, we kept defending effectively with low tackles keeping the ball out of our try zone.
We were down 19-5 at half time and encouraging pep talk from our coach motivated us to keep going, the game was not over yet. Quick balls from the forwards and amazing carries from Kiera, Harry and Laura gave our organised back line the space they needed to get the ball out wide and score more tries from Lottie and Molly.
With less than 5 minutes to go we were still down by 4 points. A number of phases from the forwards put us on the opposition's 22 metre line and the backs did what they did best resulting in a third try from our amazing centre Molly !
Well done to all the girls who played today, special mention to Lottie and Kasey for their responsibilities today and we wish RVC well for the rest of the season.
