No warm-up no win
By Matthew Quarendon
If only our Warly boys could break the pattern
Once again the Warly boys '01/'02 got caught short, with the Ruts boys putting on an unassailable early lead, while we warm up and prepare ourselves in game rather than before the game.
Otherwise some superb passages of play where our talent and resolve shows through. Great effort from the boys to come back with twenty one points in the second-half. If only there were a further 15 minutes of play we could have easily evened up the score if not one. But then again we've just wasted the first 10 minutes warming up!
WE NEED BACKS!
11 forwards and 4 backs after Luca went off injured is always going to be a challenge.
Matt Barnett, rampaging Bull Dog, always runs forward with force, Bradley the same. Sam Evans getting feisty in the scrum, supportive in the line. Marni serving up as much forward momentum in short burst runs as his able defensive work, Daniel challenged without enough back row protection and fielding some varying passes from his 9, Tikki showing us his useful side step, Jamal battering through and safe in defence, Andrew using his initiative, driving forward.
No preparation, slow to restart, not retreating 10, silent, not enough hunger for the ball, handling, tackling too high.
