1stXV  54   

St Mary’s, Melrose  12

Today was the first game of the season that we have had every boy fit and available for selection, and having made one or two changes to rotate people around, I was looking forward to see how we would play.  Last week at Belhaven, although we won the game very comfortably, we started poorly, and we talked in training during the week about starting well and being focused right from the start.  Today, we really came out of the blocks very quickly and the game was over as a contest after the first fifteen minutes.  We scored six unanswered tries in the first half and there were some terrific team tries with excellent off loading, good hands in the backs and we played at such a pace and were so clinical with the ball that St Mary’s were chasing shadows.  It was good to watch.  We left three or four tries out there as well, with one or two poor decisions made with the try line at our mercy, but we showed the rugby we are capable of playing today which bodes well for the challenges that lie ahead after half term.

To be fair to St Mary’s, they never gave up and they scored two tries in the 2nd half, as I took Jack off at the interval to see how others would react without his threatening presence in the midfield, and we took our foot off the pedal somewhat.  To be honest, our intensity dropped off quite a lot with the game already won, but we tried to play a little too much rugby without tying in the opposition and going through the phases.  Making the right decision whether to off load or to set the ruck is something we need to continue to focus on; small errors were never going to matter today, but in close games, these may be crucial.

The referee, Mr Pounder, was once again hugely impressed with our work at the breakdown, an area we dominated once again. Our jackling was outstanding and we counter rucked on numerous occasions as well as producing very quick ruck ball throughout the game.  If you win lots of ball, you are not going to lose many rugby matches!

So another convincing win.  Well played, boys.  Ardvreck next week then a well deserved half term. After that, challenges aplenty, and I cannot wait for us to be tested and see how we react!

Both A and B teams played on the Harper Gow which meant that I was able to see all the girls compete, a rare treat! The A team played first and Loretto were quick off the mark scoring a goal. I had initially disallowed it as the player was not in the D, however as the ball was in the D, the mistake was corrected and the goal allowed. This quick burst from Loretto spurred us into action however and Savannah was determined to fight back. She scored five goals mostly on her own merits, dribbling well with the ball and using her skills to get around players. I moved her to midfield in the second half and this allowed us to work on our passing and positioning, building on our team skills. I was very pleased to see some nice passing and creative play and two goals each from Bella and Emilia our captain.  Valentina also had several shots on goal but she needs to work on strengthening her shots as they were too soft. Bella had some shots on goal in the first half but the balls were off target.  Eliza and Gabriella worked well in defence although a little mistake at the end, a risky backwards pass towards our goal, helped Loretto to score their second goal. With Savannah scoring a further four goals, we won comfortably 13:2. 

The B team had a much tougher fight on their hands and the Loretto team looked very strong. They went comfortably ahead in the first half and whilst Beatrice and Aglaya worked very hard, Loretto scored 4 goals. We answered with one from Bonnie and a further one from Nadia. We were still in with a chance! In the second half we fought hard and Bonnie found a second wind, scoring two further goals. Millie crossed a lovely ball for Bonnie to slot in for the last goal and we had won! It was very much a team effort, and although we looked tired at times, we did try to pass to each other and Beatrice and Aglaya cleared very well and were not afraid to come out and tackle. Final score Cargilfield 5 Loretto 4.  Well done to both teams!

For many of the boys this was their first home match of the season and for the Under-10s in the group, the appeal of playing Under-11 rules had them chomping at the bit to get started.

After a nervy opening minute which saw Cargilfield lose possession almost immediately, the boys settled down and began to spread the ball wide, exploiting the space on offer there.  They moved the ball across the pitch very neatly, gradually building up momentum until they found the space to score.  The boys also tackled well, pinning St Mary’s back into their own half for much of the match.  Ewan was particularly good at rushing the ball carrier and making the early tackle.  Xander was able to win quite a lot of ball with his ‘jackling’ which provided further opportunities to score.  At half time five players were substituted and the new set of players continued to play an attacking, passing game with the quick feet of Kit and Tom testing the opposition.  Thabo was the outstanding tackler in the second half.

Well done to all the boys for the quality of their rugby and their team spirit.  A well-deserved 8-1 win.

After winning the IAPS Qualifiers last week the girls were full of confidence going into the match. We played 4 quarters of 10 mins. Loretto pressed right from push back and scored a well-deserved goal. The girls were a little flustered and didn’t stick to their positions. We then gained a bit more possession of the ball and our confidence came back and we scored a couple of good goals. One thing we need to work on, before we go down south, is our passing of the ball. We need to look up and pass the ball to our team mates and this will help us become more ruthless against our opposition. Well done on another good victory.

Drew 12-12

On a rather sunny but windy Wednesday afternoon, Cargilfield took on Fettes on their home turf, which promised to be a great game of rugby.

The match was played on a rather unusually shaped pitch; a lot wider than it was long, which gave both teams ample room to manoeuvre and score lots of tries. And that is exactly what happened! I was pleased with how the boys played as a team; passing down the line, supporting each other in attack and popping up the ball well to each other. This allowed us to score some rather good tries against the opposition. Unfortunately, due to the width of the pitch and our lack of ‘shoulder boulder’ Fettes were equally as effective in attack. The area to work on for their next match will be to work on the confidence in going into the tackle with the shoulders rather than flailing arms.

Well done, boys!

Won 8-4

In perfect rugby conditions, we hosted a spirited and talented team of U11 rugby players up from Melrose. Our defence was rock solid against some super running rugby from St Mary’s and I was impressed with the technique and quality of tackles going in. We need to keep a better shape in defence, however, as we are at risk of leaving our flanks exposed. In attack we saw some terrific strong running, particularly from Chay, and I was impressed with the support running and passing. Well played, boys.

U11 B v Kilgraston and Ardvreck

Our first match was against Kilgraston. From the start we seemed pretty evenly matched. Both teams spent a lot of time running after the ball and neither really seemed to use the space on the pitch especially on the wings. This meant that when we had possession there was often no one to pass to. In the later part of the match there was a lot of action around our D forcing our defenders to work hard. As we had a large team today we were able to rotate our players when they got tired.
Final score Nil all
Our section match was against Ardvreck and we were immediately on the attack. Lyla was excellent in moving the ball up and Annika had 3 very good shots at goal. However, it was not our day and we failed to score. At the other end of the pitch Ardvreck were using the space to keep us on the run and always had a player placed to convert a pass into a goal.
Final score Ardvreck 2, Cargilfield 0

This was a game where we had lots of possession but it took us a while to score more than the one goal that Esme managed to squeeze in after the first minute.  Loretto defended well and we were guilty of not passing the ball around the defenders to make it easier to get the ball over the line.  However, in the second half, we played much better as a team and passed more confidently and assertively to each other.  

Isobel had had a few chances throughout the game and her determination to get on the scoresheet allowed her to scramble the ball over the line deep into the second half to make it 4-0.   Esme scored a couple more goals and richly deserved to be one of the players of the match; however, Jessica, who captained the team against her old school friends, ran around setting up many of the chances and Tunrayo proved to be very solid at the back and comfortable to receive the ball under pressure.  Eventually, the goals came thanks to our persistence to get the ball up the field quickly.  

An improved second half girls and it is lovely to watch your hockey coming on since the last time I coached you. Well done, girls!

Our U9 B’s were desperate to build on the positive results and progress they have made over the course of the term. Dealt an injury to Oliver in the build up due to treehouse shenanigans, morale and squad depth would be tested. No matter as Mack stepped up to the breach, no kilt, but bags of enthusiasm which clearly rubbed off on his team mates in the opening stages of the match.

Limited to touch rugby the boys played with an attacking flair and real accuracy, despite Typhoon Hagibis making a detour from the Japanese coast to the Scottish borders. With stout defence across the board and Senuka adopting the X-Factor running of Darcy Graham, the Cramond men had an enjoyable day in the borders running in 7 tries to St Mary’s 4.

Player of the match was Senuka, with an eye catching performance but this was a squad effort and shows the progress the boys have made over the past 6 weeks.

On a blustery day down at Melrose our U9’s were looking to build on an impressive performance last week against Belhaven. 

Thankfully the boys got the journey out of the legs with a flying start, scoring quickly off the kick off with some slick interplay and positive running lines. Scores were traded until the introduction of Theo who gave a spectacular wide pass to Jonah who gave the Cramond men a 4-1 lead in the closing stages of the first half. A late score by St Mary’s narrowed the score after some desperate defence from Harry and the one-man wrecking ball Wilfred.

After the break St Mary’s began to assert their authority on the game, supported by a raucous borders crowd. Dexter, Tristan and Monty all brought energy and a direct approach to proceedings with the latter squaring up the game in the closing minutes. Deep into extra time Wilfred streaked clear only to be denied by a fantastic try saving tackle, which meant a draw in fantastic game of rugby. 

Player of the match was Wilfred, with an incredible appetite for work and a tackle count that any back row forward in Japan would have been proud of!
