5th May 201910.00amU12sDeal & BetteshangerWith Touring Side Rc EemalndAway5-2

Sunday the 5th May saw the Under 12s travel to Deal to take part in a festival with Deal and a touring side from a club in Holland called Eemland. We played 3 games one against a very strong Deal side in which we struggled to compete and challenge for the ball in which saw us fall behind in the first half to some good tries.The second half was a better display in which we managed to score a try but Deal also managed a couple of tries in return.

We then played the 1st side from Eemland in which they were also very strong and very good at turning over the ball in the tackle and at the break down the game was played at a fast pace in which we fell a little short and unfortunately came away with a second defeat. After a break and a regroup with some words to wake up some of the players to the reality of our short comings we played the second side from Eemland in which we managed a win with some good strong running and several good tries.

The day finished off with an exchange of gifts and a barbeque all with some new friends made in which as always and as said before rugby was the winner.
