P7 Archive: Season 2015-16
P7s at RHC
Sunday 24 January 2016
The P7s travelled through to Barnton (home of RHC Cougars) to play their first matches in 2016. Opponents were Boroughmuir and RHC Cougars.
The squad hadn’t played for some time due to fixture cancellations due to the bad weather leading up to Christmas, so this was our first competitive outing for some time and therefore the team were a little rusty.
Wee Reds 1 – Boroughmuir 6
First up was Boroughmuir who were a very organised and well drilled side. Our previous encounter had resulted in a tight 2-2 draw and was a very competitive and balanced match. However, on this occasion the Weee Reds met their match!
Again the game was evenly contested in the main and the squad gave their all, but they were bullied up front by the opposition who were slightly quicker at the breakdown and their defence was up and in our faces consistently which resulted in us having no space to play our game.
Still the game was a tight affair leading into the last 5 minutes with Boroughmuir only leading 3-1, but unfortunately a further score by their forward pack knocked the Reds confidence and we conceded a few sloppy tries at the end to finish on the wrong end of a 6-1 defeat.
Post match discussions with the Boroughmuir coaches were very complimentary about our effort and ability, and admitting that the final scoreline flattered them and that the game had been far closer than the scoreline suggested.
The Reds gave their all and their effort couldn’t be faulted but we had to accept that we were beaten by the better and more organised team on that occasion. But we’ll be back…….
Wee Reds 12 – RHC 1
Next up was RHC so, after a debrief of all of the positive points taken from the first game against good opposition, we rallied the squad to come back strong!
With all respect, the opposition in the next game was weaker than our first encounter and their team were struggling with numbers so ended up borrowing a few of the Boroughmuir players. The Wee Reds turned up and came out of the blocks scoring a number of excellent team tries from the start, winning ball at the breakdown and releasing the ball wide to allow our wingers to show their speed and balance.
This is what we had been unable to do successfully in the first match as we were harassed by the opposition defence. This match was a totally different affair and we got the opportunity to play to our strengths and to play our game.
The addition of the Boroughmuir players couldn’t stop us showing our skills and we a were successful in consistently winning ball at the breakdown and exploiting the speed in the team to score several uncontested tries.
The team got their ‘mojo’ back and ran out 12-1 winners and their confidence returned.
Baa Baa’s 3 – Baa Baa’s 2
Finally, the coaches collectively agreed that the last fixture would be a composite Baa Baa’s game, mainly consisting of players from both the Boroughmuir and RHC squads but with a small contribution from the Wee Reds to give it that edge!!
Four volunteers stepped forward with two players playing on each side. The boys Murray, Eioan, Callum and Oscar all played their part in a close and competitive game with the score finishing 3-2 and they had their opportunity to tackle some of their teammates in a friendly but competitive game!!
Well done to all of the squad for their efforts on the day and the boys for assisting and representing the club in the Baa Baa’s fixture.
A lot was learnt on the day on what we need to improve on but also what our strengths are, and all in all the Wee Reds did good in their first fixture for some time. I’m confident we can have a successful second half of the season if we accept the lessons of the day, train hard on our weaknesses and move on.
Next up, home fixture on Sunday against Forrester, Kinross and Livingston!! Bring it on………….
