Ormskirk Rugby Under 9s against Leigh
SUNDAY brought the 9's visit to Leigh, it was always going to be a tough trip which ultimately ended in a 20-11 defeat. But after a slow start the boys showed lots of character and plenty of fight!
Sam once again captained the side and continues to develop leadership skills as well as his rugby ability making great tackles and made great ground going forward being rewarded with a super try. Joel continued his progress as a winger always finding space in the smallest of gaps. As well making some great tackles he was rewarded with an overdue first try of the season. James continues to progress into a fine player always willing to take the ball and make ground for his teammates.
Jack once again showed his strength and power, both offensively and defensively making some try saving tackles and powering up the middle of the pitch being rewarded with a try. George made some excellent cover tackles in defence and was always looking for gaps in attack, he also crossed the whitewash. Joseph was a heart of the defensive action again and in attack scored his first ever try in his green and blue shirt.
Jake defied size in defence once more proving the bigger they are the harder they fall! He also scored an excellent individual try. Dan ran in a hat trick of tries this week, all excellently worked scores indeed, as well as making numerous tackles all over the pitch. This week’s man of the match award went to Ben. He changed the game when he entered the fray, he was excellent in attack, making line breaks and weaving between defenders and making some excellent low tackles in defence.
Thanks to Leigh for an excellent game. It's always good to play talented teams. We look forward to return fixture at Green Lane on the 15th.
