Round 3 – Match Reports

Kentwell Cup – 1st Grade

On a sunny day and a fast track at Waverley Oval, we saw plenty of running rugby. Knox were found guilty of pushing the pass early on, gifting Waverley two early intercept tries, but fought their way back into the match with some impressive wide play. It was 21-14 to Waverley after 30mins. 

The game had an unusual flow to it, with a total of 6 yellow cards handed out. And when Waverley’s winger received his 2nd yellow, being sent off for the match, there was some belief before half time that Knox was in the driver’s seat. 

In the end, Waverley’s dominance at scrum time and Knox’s inability to keep 15 players on the pitch was too much to overcome. And eventually the wheels fell off for Knox. 

This team is still searching for their first win, and will be doing everything in their power to find it this weekend against Forest at home.

Burke Cup – 2nd Grade

Attitude and intent was definitely there this week but execution and lack of numbers are what let us down.
The boys had a throw together team and welcomed a few players that the boys had never played with before and it showed. Going into the break with a 7-5 lead after once again dominating every aspect of the game BUT the score board. Unfortunately a slow start to the second half and a lot of changes to the team at half time is what disrupted what momentum we had. Going down 17-14 to a waverly side who played conservative footy for the last 20mins. Big thanks to the colts boys who backed up and helped the 2s have a team.

Whiddon Cup – 3rd Grade

First of all – really great effort by all involved to turn up in numbers early for 4s. Best turn up of the season so far and just really bad luck that one of the Waverley players went down in the first 5 minutes of 4s and then it too until into 3s playing time to get moving. I think they planned it! (Joke).
After a very disjointed morning, the 3s ran out against Waverley and the game could be pretty easily summed up by saying our forward packs were both pretty equally matched, and they didn’t get a lot of joy there, but the Waverley backline was big, slick and well drilled.
The ball that they won was put to good use and we didn’t have too much of an answer for their quick shifting and ball running out wide. One of those days that should have started with a good win in 4s and taken momentum from there, but not to be sadly.
Back at the Berg for Forest this weekend with the mighty 3s and 4s squad
