With the reporter looking like he has roved his last, James has kindly provided an update on the other game for the Under 7s
“An exciting and fast paced game played in good spirits by both teams with constant end to end action.
In an improvement on recent games, the defence from Eccles was outstanding with many try saving tackles from Mitchell and Zac in particular with the latter constantly seen with an MV tag in his hand (aren’t you supposed to give them back!) and the former even managing to get 2 tags at once in a single tackle (just plain greedy!)
In attack Reece used his speed out wide to great effect, flowing past the defence for a couple of tries and Mitchell also adding to his tally of tries from previous games and getting on the score sheet.
Some excellent running from Ben, who scored a great try when he ran straight through the middle of the TMV defence leaving them flapping at his tags. Speedy runs from Lucas saw him score a handful of tries. One of them saw him side step his way through most of the TMV defence
Not to be out-done by his team mates, Zac was also putting in some powerful runs. On one occasion, Zac was so fast he even managed to tackle himself just before the try line. Offence and defence in one fell swoop.”
The only name missing from the detail above is the Star of the Week. Max was outstanding in both defence and attack, stopping MV from scoring certain tries on numerous occasions. His work ethic and enthusiasm both with and without the ball inspired the team performance as they recorded their first win of the season. Well done!
