Second Match of Our Storm Pool
By Dominic Weisz
Louis and Evan make their debuts and a good last five minutes show how we can really play.
Seaford’s very slow start to the match put us on the back foot and made it very hard to build any momentum. Burgess Hill on the other hand ran the ball hard right from the kick off and intimidated the Seaford defence.
Despite the score line there were some bright spots. The set piece scrum held up well against a bigger Burgess Hill pack. Louis made a great debut showing lovely speed to make a few try saving tackles. Evan too made his debut being thrown in to flanker where he’d not played before. We managed to field a full team plus two subs, which is amazing!!! Lamai’s after match speeches are coming along nicely! Joseph had another good game despite the ref not letting him have a shot at a penalty and the little knock on disallowing a try!
If we had started the same way we finished the game with some hard straight running we may have gained a bit of confidence all round, well done to Burgess Hill and thanks to them for hosting us. England play South Africa this weekend the match will be shown in the clubhouse, maybe coming down and watching will give us a bit of inspiration when we face Pulborough next weekend!
