u18_PLCongratulations to the u18s on their win at the weekend. After a slow start losing Euan after 5 mins to injury and going down 0-5 after just 8 mins, the Squad pulled together and worked well as a team defending and attacking well.

Just before half time PL cleared their 22 with a long kick dealt with by Ross T with a good take and run to clear the danger zone and ending with Kieran scoring just before half time to level the scores at 5 all.

This continued into the second half with Lewis M scoring 5 minutes into the sceond half. Reds now 10 -5 up. The game was then played end-to-end for the next 10 to 15 mins.

The Reds then had a scrum just inside the 22.  Kieran picked up and good forward play picking and driving around the fringes ended with Mark C scoring the last try of the match with about 15 mins left to play. The game was then played up and down the pitch with no more scores with the Reds winning 15 – 5.  Well done to all that played.
