Swans 10-10 Ivel Barbarians
The first game of the season turned out to be a really tight physical game.
This was the first time the two sides had met but it was obvious by the size of some of the Ivel players that it was going to be a hard game. From the first kick off Ivel used their big forwards well by dragging in the swans defence before trying to get the ball out to the wings.The swans forwards had to work but it payed off and they started to put Ivel under pressure at set pieces. Just as swans started to look the more likely to score two small mistakes saw Ivel take a 10-0 just before half time. The second half saw a more confident swans team winning plenty of ball at the break downs and some better passing in the backs enabled them to draw level with tries Josh w and Christian d.A good display for the first game the season,with all the new players doing share of the work.well done.
