P6s First Games of 2016 – RHC Cougars
Sunday 24 January 2016
The first games back on grass following an extended spell of indoor training, saw 13 p6 boys travelling to Royal High for some much needed game time. Given the good turnout from all sides, we were able to select 3 boys out of the squad for each match to join players from RHC and Boroughmuir to make up a Barbarian’s squad. This allowed the boys extra game time and allowed 9 boys the opportunity to play with some new teammates over the afternoon.
It’s fair to say the boys looked like they’d missed playing games, and the energy from the first pass to the last play was fantastic. Every boy walked off the pitch at the end of the games exhausted, having given their all and while the coaches were delighted with how the team played for each other, it was even more pleasing to hear the compliments of the coaches from the other teams about the spirit and skills on display.
In the first game, the Barbarians played Linlithgow and it’s fair to say our Barbarians representatives in that match relished the challenge ! The game was hard fought, with Linlithgow just edging it 3 tries to 2.
In the second match, against Boroughmuir, we ran in easy winners due to great pressure in defence and some lovely handling and support running when in attack. The game was flowing and great to watch.
In our final game against RHC, again we battled hard, losing by 2 tries due mainly to missed tackles in the mid-field. The boys didn’t give up however, scoring some nice tries against a strong defence.
There was too much good rugby on display to pick out one particular play or try, however, each boy showed improvement on previous games and training sessions as follows : Aidan (great pressure on the opposition and determination to win ball), Conor (chose some excellent running lines and handling, showing good leadership), Marc (was like a whirling dervish from start to finish – great energy and bravery), Euan (strong running and offloading, tying up opposition numbers), Evan (very good tackling technique, saving us a number of tries and had some tricky footwork in attack), Ruari B (good support running and rucking in the tight), Ruaridh D (good ball carrying and offloading – supported the ball carrier well), Rory (one man wrecking ball, carrying well and clearing out rucks), Cameron (good running in the loose and rucking – brave against some big opposition !), Max H (had his game face on, good tackling and elusive running), Max M (another Max was back ! Good running, tackling and rucking), Kinloch (good aggressive rucking and tackling – brave technique in securing ball) and Kyle (at one point had 3 Boroughmuir players hanging off him and was still running – great direct running and strength)
Well done boys, brilliant attitude and application every one of you – bring on the next games !
P6s at Home Tournament
– 6 out of 6 Wins for Veterans!
– Young Guns Play with Determination and Passion!
Sunday 11 October 2015
The P6 squad played two teams at our home tournament last Sunday, Linlithgow & Linlithgow Lions. Having only seventeen players meant that there was only one sub between the two teams.
Linlithgow played really well, managing to win all 6 matches, scoring 31 tries and only conceding 2 tries. Some great running rugby, rucking, tackling and excellent support play from all of the squad. A real team effort and a fantastic result.
The Linlithgow Lions team consisted of only 8 players. Five of whom were completely new to rugby this season, two having only had one training session before Sunday. They started slowly, but grew in confidence as the games progressed. They played their last few games with determination and passion and they were a credit to each other that they didn’t give up.
