U14s Continue This Seasons Unbeaten Run
Wins against Ipswich and Woodbridge keep YM at the top of Suffolk Plate table.
I considered the game on Sunday against Ipswich as a real test of how much our boys had developed since the start of the season. We played a very close game against Ipswich A team early on in the season that we won by 1 try to nil. I was confident that we had made improvements since then but the boys actually delivered their best perfomance of the year with a convincing 33-7 victory, followed by a 38-0 victory against Woodbridge.
I was particularly impressed with the boys composure, they all knew their role and made great decisions under pressure. It was a joy to watch the expansive rugby that our very talented back line can produce but this is only possible due to the strength and skill to dominate the breakdown and set piece that the forwards delivered. And then there are the little things, no penalties for off-side (which was always our achilles heal!), very few dropped balls and a real improvement in communication and leadership on the pitch. Great job all round.
We are now top of the table in the Plate Competition with one round to go. Only 7 points conceded in last 4 games and still unbeaten this season.
