Sandbach Away

By

The boys do OK against a decent Sandbach side.

With 30 boys available we split the teams into reds and greens, the greens played at home to a strong Fylde side and the Reds (watched by me) travelled to Sandbach.
Within a couple of minutes we had opened the scoring, we managed to turn the ball over following some good aggressive pressing from the forwards which enabled Lightning to make a decent break before being tackled on the Sandbach 22,he popped the ball up to Matty who placed a great cross field kick into the corner where Rorio scooped low to gather the ball at pace and slide over.
The positive start continued, the handling was good and Sandbach struggled to contain our breaks putting them on the back foot. A nice break and dummy from Jack Bailey playing against his old team created the second try within 5 minutes. He found Rorio, again on the right who galloped in down the wing this time cutting in to give Matty an easier conversion.
This was followed up by yet again another try from Rorio who's pace and strength Sandbach just couldn't deal with.
We should have put them to the sword at this point, we looked far stronger up front, the forwards looking after the ball well and making patient yards down field.
Unfortunately however, several times we decided to kick the ball whilst in control in the Sandbach half gifting them possession back and taking the pressure of them. This allowed Sandbach to claw there way back into the game and following a scrappy few phases they went over in the corner to keep them in touch at half time.
Within a couple of minutes of the second half starting Jim muscled his way through to find Charlie in support who went over to extend the lead, Matty converted again. At this point we swapped a few of our players for Sandbach lads to help them with game time, the unfamiliarity and squally windy conditions meant the rest of the half was quite a scrappy affair. Several times kicks from both sides almost blew back on themselves and i don't think there was one straight line out all morning! Sandbach managed one more try a couple of minutes before the final whistle, the game finishing 12-24.
