Nuneaton Festival Sun 22/04/2012 

Under 12's Win Nuneaton Festival

 

22nd April 2012

 

We took a battle weary squad to Nuneaton , some bearing tour  injuries and some end of season!

 

The rain held off for a fantastic morning of rugby.

 

Moseley 3 – 0 Nuneaton

 

We first played Nuneaton , having not played them for a couple of years and on seeing the 2 6foot second rows our lads took to the field cautiously.

 

What a start! A catch from Paddy from the kick off, who powered over to score the try left Nuneaton shell shocked. Some great rugby followed with the forwards rucking and the backs moving the ball wide.

 

Max .B charged a ball down and dropped over to score, the lad’s confidence built and they upped the ante with good decision making. Another try by Archie left Nuneaton with no come back and the final whistle left a score of 3-0

 

Moseley 1 – 0 Market Bosworth

 

A tougher match for the lads , new signing Joel made some great runs on his first run out. The try line was only threatened once when great defending held the ball up.

 

Moseley 4 – 0 Hinckley

 

The boys continued to play their hearts out with  a final in sight .

Hinckley never appeared to be a threat and the match saw some great tries from Max.B from a ripped ball, Dylan, Archie and Joseph H

 

The final

 

Nuneaton 0 - 2 Moseley

 

Nuneaton were ready to take us on straight away to secure the win at their own festival.

 

First half uphill saw some lack of concentration and rucking hand the ball back to Nuneaton several times. The start of the match made for nervous viewing, then Moseley took charge .Archie powered over for a great forwards try.

 

Second half was downhill and although this match was scrappier than the others the continued dominance at scrum time and team effort paid off, Dylan made the score 2-0 .

 

Nuneaton held a great festival and the u12s (parents and players) were delighted to take the trophy.

 

Special mention to Sam and Lewis who played for the barbarian team.

 

Well done Lads let’s keep it up for next week’s festival
