Under 12's Land Rover Cup Underway

So another season gets underway and as last year last week we started with the Land Rover Cup, a prestigious tournament of the best U11's and 12's in the SW. 
Our first match was at the very early hour of 8.40pm so I was not surprised our still dozing boys went down 1 try to nil to a strong, wide awake Truro team. That woke them up and their next 3 matches they beat Crediton 6 tries to nil, Totnes 4 tries to 1 and Withycombe 2 tries to nil.
This was a great display and we missed the semi final spot by 1 point!!
This Sunday we had a rearranged home match against one of our pool opponents, Withycombe and this time the boys decided to attack from the first whistle to the last. The scoring was shared between several players as finally they understood the value of passing to a better placed player rather than trying to do everything themselves. We did not keep an accurate score but they boys did and believe it was 54 - 7. 
So all in all a strong start to the season, some new players bedding in well, Tiverton away next Sunday. It's going to be a good fun filled season.
