Feb 6 2014 Ormskirk Advertiser
A GLORIOUS Sunday morning saw Ormskirk under-9s take part in a triangular tournament against Liverpool St Helens & Wigan RUFC.
In the first game the boys took on Wigan and unfortunately they came up short 6-5 against a powerful Wigan outfit.
The boys then took on Liverpool St Helens straight afterwards in order to give Wigan a rest.
LSH were too powerful for a tiring Kirk side with LSH having some very talented players, the final score was 7-3 too LSH.
Adam was always trying to spread the play for his teammates, delighting his coaches.
Jake found the gaps well again, showing some great ball handling skills when going into contact.
Josh was more than willing to adopt a new position of wing for his team, he was always a willing ball carrier as well making some good metres.
Ben was again up front with his tackling, playing in multiple positions, he grabbed his team’s final try against LSH, powering his way over after showing some good footwork, twisting his way over the line.
Toby made a welcome return to the side with his pace and power proving very useful in attack and defence. He grabbed one of the tries of the season with an excellent individual effort from his own try line against LSH. Joseph continues to get more involved with every passing week making more tackles and making more carries again this week.
Sam captained the side again and he did well leading the troops, with his tackling technique setting the standard again.
Jack made a welcome return to the squad as well with his powerful running style rewarding him with a try against a mean Wigan defence.
Harry continues to improve week on week, he's making the wing his own with two more excellent scores against Wigan.
As well as being noted for his tackling which is vastly improving, he was narrowly pipped for the MoM award. Joel was chosen for the accolade this week, not just for his try scoring ability and tackling technique but for his leadership skills and keeping a cool head under pressure.
Next week the boys make the short trip to Tarleton hoping for another competitive fixture.
