Crusaders 5 v Swansea Uplands 5

Our sixth game of the season saw a nail-biting draw against the very competitive Swansea Uplands.

Lyndon refereed superbly in the all action encounter and the final score was a good reflection of the possession and endeavour from both sides.

With only two players from the regular squad away, all 19 boys got at least 15 minutes of game time. This is going to be our policy in situations where we can guarantee good game time. For away fixtures against small squads, a more streamlined approach will be taken.

For the record, Max scored three tries and Rhys C two.

I am going to highlight several boys who played particularly well this week. They did at least one of the following:

1. Ran straight
2. Made significant tackles
3. Grappled hard in close quarters

Alex, Connor, Aled and Sam.

All the other boys made a very positive contribution.

We have some targets to look to. A new rule will be introduced on Wednesday to go with the other three.
