Cwmcarn 39 Girlings 17
Cwmcarn entertained Girling at the Welfare on a good day for rugby.
It was evident from the kick-off that both teams were up for the match in what was a bruising encounter. In amongst the rougher stuff was some excellent attacking play from both sides, which resulted in 5 tries for Cwmcarn and 3 for Girling.
After the first couple of scrums, Carn began to dominate & this resulted in Jabba taking a couple against the head – He just loves poaching opposition ball & you could almost see his chest inflate a couple of inches (thankfully it quickly deflated, otherwise he’d have ripped his shirt). Line-outs were functioning, with Duracell winning most of our own ball.
The glory boy three-quarters were keen to run everything & with a decent set of backs on display (almost at full strength for a change), the ball was being flung hither & thither. This resulted in the odd mistake & spilled ball, but nothing too calamitous. Having The Metronome James Baker (hereon in to be called Lomulegs) on fine kicking form off the tee, helped steady the ship & build a nice lead.
There were top drawer tries from both sides. Try-scorers for Carn being: Cam Demolition Ball, Tom Caveman Goff, Dan Whippet Wood, Gareth Quiver Price and Reuben Duracell Hoare. All the tries were worthy of replays; if only we could afford the camera. Young Joe, our recent signing was learning his trade on the wing and always looking for work. It would appear he is also listening to his coaches, with some nice ‘long presents’ when tackled (mind you with limbs that long – Long presents are that much easier)
Girling brought a good side to the Welfare, so 39 points is not to be sniffed at. They wanted this game, as was evidenced by the 3 yellow cards & one red. The referee, who had shown patience to this point, grew tired of the frequent infringements from both sides & got his cards out in the second half. A very pumped up Demolition Ball was involved in a little fracas towards the end of the game & received a head-butt from one of the Girlings props for his troubles. Quite what he did to receive the Glaswegian kiss is anyone’s guess; but rumour has it that someone’s crown jewels may have been pinched ...so to speak.
In an overall very good team performance, this week’s award is shared by James Lomulegs & Demolition Ball.
Coaches Vic & Blakey will have been pleased with the structure & endeavour on display today
