Games v Morriston and Aberavon Greenstars

Sunday saw the Crusaders play their first games for the season with lineouts and scrums. With four debutants and one returnee, it was a busy and sometimes confusing day.

First, we must thank Morriston and Greenstars for their flexible, friendly approach. The coaching staff were positive, helpful and I think that we had some close and hard fought games. There was never much in the games and I think all the sides can say there were plenty of positives.

We played one Morriston side and two Greenstar sides, with two games for each of our mixed teams. Though overall we might have had the edge in terms of tries, it would have been difficult to split the teams.

Areas we can be particularly pleased with:
1. New boys getting stuck in.
2. More passing than last season already.
3. A greater number of players willing to tackle.
4. Several boys finding more defined roles to their benefit.

Areas we can look for improvements:
1. Passing earlier.
2. Supporting the ball carrier.

Training on Wednesday: 4.30pm to 5.45pm at Underhill.
Game(s) this weekend v Penclawdd and Briton Ferry (tbc).
