Match report

At 12 a side all the pre season planning was put aside and this game was very much about adapting to the game in front of us. Coaches were very pleased with the line out in both attack and defence which caused big problems for Deri. We also carried very agressiveley and found good areas to attack in and around the ruck.

Discipline was poor throughout as was our ruck speed. These will be areas of focus as we lead into out our first 15 a side game v Cefn next Saturday. However as a first hit out in 18+ months and first win in 24 months we can not complain. The feeling is good in camp and attitudes are improving all players seem to be pulling in the right direction. Focus is already on next week where we play Cefn Coed which is always a great local derby 1pm kick off.

Final Score Deri 12-17 Ynysowen

Tries scored by

Cameron Harris- who went over off a smart line out move.

Special mention goes to Zac Hurley who was player of the match followed closely by Jack Forrest. Well done everyone involved first W of hopefully many.
