League game @ Dalziel Park, 13/12/15
|Dalziel Under 16s:||0|
Dalziel / Strathaven XV
Cumnock came to Dalziel Park to play on the 4G parks. A lot of frost meant that it was a cold day and even at home we struggled to get all players available. Even with some more of our experienced lads available we struggled against a very physical side. We had a more solid back line but the power up front and some of our more physical players missing meant we struggled once they got going in the loose. There was a maturity about the Cumnock side which showed every time they got the ball with strong direct running from the back row pick up or even when the ball got passed out to the backs they knew where support players were and trusted in each otherâ€™s abilities. In comparison the rather green Dalziel team left gaps and missed first time tackles which meant we would be chasing the whole game.
The pack even though giving away ~1 stone per player competed well in the scrums and even took a few against the head. The heads stayed up and the boys played on regardless of the score after score and the final 5 minutes saw them camped on the Cumnock 5M line retaining control and possibly going over the line for a score unseen by the referee. Final score Dalziel 0 Cumnock 68.
Again largely let down by missing players.
