Swans u14s 12-33 Bournemouth u14s
An excellent performance under the under the flood lights
The offer of a Friday evening kick off under the flood lights was accepted by Bournemouth,although the result didn't go our way it was the best performance of the season so far with both teams playing some excellent rugby.
From the kick off the standard for the rest of the game was set as the big Bournemouth pack was stopped in their tracks by some big tackles both from the forwards and the backs.
As they worked their way slowly up the pitch a move in the backs created space out wide with only a good covering tackle keeping the score 0-0.The score stayed this way for a bit until another good move from the Bournemouth backs had one of their centres going in under the post 0-7.From the restart Swans were able to turn the ball over and with some quick hands they got the ball to George who rounded the covering defence to score out wide 5-7.The rest of the half was pretty even with the only difference being Bournemouth managed to come away with points when they entered Swans 22.Half time 5-28
With everyone thinking the first half was good the second one was even better with Swans having more of the ball and using the forwards to pick up and go around the fringes forcing Bournemouth to give away penalties to stop them . The only thing that was missing was tries . Bournemouth's forwards made them pay for that as their no8 went over to score out wide from quick pick up and go from a 5 yard scrum , this didn't seem to deter Swans as for the rest of the half they were camped in the oppositions half and finally got the try they deserved in the final minutes after some great work from the forwards again.
Final score 12-33
Both sides were cheered off the pitch by everyone who was watching as the standard of rugby was brilliant considering the game was played in constant rain/sleet . A big well done to both teams
