Academy 15-22 Scunthorpe….Match Report

We called for a faster start and the band of brothers delivered! The first half was simply their best this year. The Scunthorpe Giants were shell shocked as our lads played total rugby; yes I am right it was total rugby!

We went into half time 8-0 up and it should have been more. The coaches chat at half time was simply more of the same.

Sounds too good? Yep, Scunthorpe came out in the second half with a new front 5 and bulldozed their way back into the match.

With 10 minutes to go we were level at 15-15 and sadly came out on the wrong side of 15-22 defeat.

The lads should hold their heads high as there was significant improvement.

A special mention to Archie and Shelts who both played full games yesterday and turned up today to lend a hand.

Let’s get down to training this week and drive forward from here.

PS: Harry T promised £5 into the fine pot if I mentioned the fact that after 10 years of trying he actually made a decent pass 😂
