Game lost but Mission Accomplished!!!

Some excellent Rugby today and some areas to work on.
Winning was never Top of the Agenda today. I lost count but I understand we had 26 boys at training this morning and they all got at least half a game each, so when you play a Div 1 team with a mixed squad, you'd have to be a fantastic all round squad to win.
We also took the opportunity to switch round a number of position, so with Jamie away, Ben had a go at 15, moving Archie into 10, JJ to 12 and Tom to 13 and so on. Forwards also had a switch around with Casper back in the front row with Billy and Louis at Hooker.
This gives Sandy and I more of a clue about replacements and alternatives which was Sandy's 2nd main aim of the game.
First Half was 12-26
2nd Half 12-17
For those who like to analyse the games, if you take off the mishap that gave a try to EG in our try zone, two try's from poor tackle attempts and even the try after EG apparently knocked on that the Ref missed! That leaves you with a very tight game if it were a League fixture.
So overall pretty useful fixture against a very well drilled side who I'd also add gave very few penalties away and showed excellent sportsmanship.
Although there were a few of the team who had a great game, Man of the Match for me today for some outstanding tackling was Miggi. He had a great game and made 3-4 massive last man tackles, well done!
Training next week and then another home friendly against Worthing.
