Scoring Try 3 Points, Conversion One Point.
Dalziel 56 - Ardrossan 18
A big effort and a really good win for the boys today. We played 3 x 20 min periods which gave our squad of 21 plenty of game time. Thanks to the boys who helped out by playing for Ardrossan as they only had 10 available players - they all worked very hard and played well against their teammates.
Dalziel won the first period 24-0, however following some experimenting with our positions Ardrossan won the second period 14-7. In the third period the boys got their structure back and won 25-4.
Whilst this was a very good win today, there were some areas of our play that would be punished against stronger opponents. Our defensive line was often too slow in advancing and lacked cohesion, this enabled Ardrossan to either easily move the ball wide or for their runners to attack gaps in our defence.
In attack, our line was often too flat which meant players taking passes standing still rather than at speed. This also increases the chance of interceptions and we lost a try in the second period due this. Some areas to work on at training to help the boys continue their development for the tougher challenges to come.
Big positives today were our rucking, tackling and support play - we scored some excellent team tries. We also had some success today with boys playing in unfamiliar positions, which helps with their development and provides more options for the team.
