We rounded off our rugby season with a visit to Beachborough, hoping to end the season on a high. I’m delighted to report all the hard work the boys have put in over the season really was evident in this match.
From start to finish we attacked, really testing our opposition’s tackling and rucking skills. The Grove used the ball quickly and looked for their strong runners. One person who has always been a strong, quick runner is Elijah Martey, but in this game, he developed his defensive skills; Elijah wasn’t necessarily tackling the opposition but even more dangerously just ripping the ball from them and turning defence into attack in the blink of an eye. Elijah ended the game with five tries.
Our other two tries were scored by Findlay Hovell, showing his skills on the ball to power through the defence. We did concede one try but to win our last match of the season 35-5 is a great result.
Well done boys for signing off the season in style!
