U8S RUGBY: Machen 11 Oakdale 6
2:20pm Tuesday 26th February 2013 in Sport
The U8s travelled to Machen for their Sunday morning game. Machen won the toss and started the scoring.
From an Oakdale restart Jake Wilkinson headed for the try line to open the scoring for the Dale, closely followed by Alex Williams to score the Dales second try of the morning. A mazey run by Connor Lewis found the try line, on his feet, to secure the third.
The fourth try was well worked by Ioan Barber who was instrumental in passing amongst the pack for Connor to go over for his second try.
The Dales fifth try came from turnover ball which Jake offloaded to Alex Williams to score. Alex also scored the final try for Oakdale beating several of the Machen defense on his way to the try line.
Despite no try for him Rhys Tedstone had a great game with some very good tags and three barnstorming runs. The coach was impressed with the improvement made during the U8s first season and with more hard work in training will progress further.
