Swifts Match Reports – Sunday 8th September 2019

Under 12’s

Last Sunday Tenby Under 12s welcome Fishguard for a home fixture at the clickets. The seasiders started strong. A powerful run by Lewis brought play quickly up field and gave the territory advantage to Tenby early on. When a scrum was awarded 5 metres out on the Fishguard line a quick pick up off the scrum saw Lewis finish what he started and crash over to open the score 5-0. From the restart Alfie showed his pace to break through the defence and bring play quickly back into the away teams half. Great work from the forwards saw the ball retained for several phases. Some quick hands from the backs were sending the Fishguard defence all over the field and eventually Alfie would spot the gap to cross in the corner. After converting his own try the score stood at 12-0 to the seasiders. Fishguard started a period of their own pressure which had Tenby fighting to protect their try line but a break through by Louie released the pressure and put Tenby back up field. Big tackles by both teams would see possession switch back and forth as both teams tried to turn pressure into points. It would be a burst of strength from Sophie that would swing momentum back into the hands of Tenby and when awarded a scrum on the Fishguard line the seasiders were provided the platform they needed. Once in the hands of the backs they spread the ball out wide into the safe hands of Liam who crossed for try three and saw the first half finish 17-0. Second half started strong for the seasiders. The forwards as a unit pushed forward but it would be a determined run from Lucy that would see her break through a number of tackles to crash over the try line and extend the lead to 22-0. Tenby were building in confidence and with this came the running rugby we have come to enjoy watching from them. The next try would come when Liam spotting a gap  turned on his speed to slice his way through the defence to score his second. Converted by Alfie the seasiders were now looking comfortable with a 29-0 lead. Fishguard from the restart tried to apply some of their own pressure but when a loose ball was secure  by Jayden it was to be Alfie who used his quick feet to weave through the defence to score his second of the morning. Fishguard were producing some good rugby and never let their heads drop. This perseverance was to be rewarded with a try of their own near the end of the game. Final score was 34-7 to Tenby. Man of the match award went to Lucy for an outstanding performance and special mention goes to Connor, Lucy, Rhys and Owen who offered themselves to go across and play for Fishguard to allow both teams to field 15 aside.
