Under 16's entertain on first team pitch

Weston Super Mare RFC 38 – 10 St Mary’s Old Boys

Match report by Kenny Braidwood

Playing on the first team pitch Weston Under 16’s and St Mary’s played out an entertaining game worthy of the venue. The first ten minutes of the game saw both teams matching each other in both attack and defence. Despite there being no score in this period good controlled rugby was played by both teams. St Mary’s broke the deadlock with a well taken try on the right wing. The conversion from a tight angle hit the outside of the upright to deny the extras.

Weston’s front five had an excellent game and after they had propelled the team into St Mary’s twenty two Euan Braidwood cleverly picked up the ball from a breakdown and got the ball out to Kyron Pearce who dodged a couple of tackles to score out on the left. Lewis Paterson landed a very good conversion from distance on a tight angle. Paterson was next to get over the line with one of his usual weaving runs. Again he added the extras.

St Mary’s continued to threaten with periods of good possession. They made their way up the pitch with a number of carries which set their backs free to ghost through the Weston defence after a dummy pass was missed by Weston.

Where the first half was a close affair the second half saw Weston take a firm hold of the match and score four unanswered tries. The first two tries were scored by Dom Marshall who ran good powerful lines through the St Mary’s defence. Lewis Paterson converted both tries. St Mary’s kept trying to work the ball forward. One of their best moves ended when the player in possession decided to run straight at Reef Morton; unsurprisingly he came off second best. Weston’s seventh try came after a prolonged period of possession by Weston’s dominant forwards. David Clamp was just able to control a loose ball three metres out and got over the line. Conversion missed.

Weston’s final try came from andrew turner who’d had a bit of trouble during the game keeping hold of the ball which had denied him a couple of possible scoring chances. This time he found himself at the business end of a well worked maul which got over the line. Conversion missed.

The match finished with Weston fully in control of the game. This was balanced performance against good opposition that Weston have struggled against in the past. The team were able to link phases with Weston’s forwards providing the driving edge from set pieces which was missing from their last game. Joseph Connolly was tenacious at the breakdown and nicked a couple of line outs, Billy Howells carried the ball well, and Ben Mullin and andrew turner gave Weston dominance in the scrum. Ruben Picardo had a good game at eight until he picked up an ankle injury in the second half. Charlie Raisey had an excellent game and harried the opposition at every opportunity as well as picking out his team mates with some good intelligent passing.

Man of the match went to Euan Braidwood for another fine display in the second row. His tackling, carries and off-loading helped give Weston quick ball which they were able to capitalize on.
