The Dunvant Challenge

Thanks, first, to Dunvant for squeezing us in to their fixture. The boys had a tough intro to full contact when they came up against a very strong Porthcawl side. The first half flew by, and so did the big Porthcawl players. A stirring half time team talk from Mike The Morgan, and the boys stepped it up for a closely fought second half. After watching Porthcawl dispatch Dunvant with a similar score, it looked like we were heading for a tight encounter with two evenly matched sides. It was Mumbles though, that had learnt the most lessons from the first game. The tackling never let Dunvant into the game and the ball retention improved dramatically as Mumbles opened up an early lead and continued to build on it all through the game. As you missed it Dan, check the video evidence. Tom L takes the ball ferociously into contact, retains possession. Mumbles recycle. Max looks for the open field. Numbers! Lloyd is there to cross in the corner. Text book stuff.
