Loughor match

Loughor 28 Mumbles 0

The Crusaders travelled over to Loughor for an evening game.

Loughor, who have just reformed this season, were ready to avenge a defeat on the weekend and the Mumbles boys were a little shell shocked by the onslaught.

It won't go down as one of the great spectacles of running rugby, with some confusing passages of play. The Crusaders looked a little disjointed and lost their own momentum quite early on. Loughor drove forward well and went over two close range tries in the first half.

In the second half saw a good break from the Loughor 10 for an individual try. The second try was scored as the boys remonstrated with the referee about an injury. A lesson learned there we hope: play the whistle.

Overall, Loughor were stronger at the breakdown and more determined going forward.

There were some positives though with good tackling from a number of the team. But too many dropped balls and indecisive work in the rucks made progress heavy going.

We would like to thank Loughor for a good fixture though and look forward to seeing them in November. Well done on reforming.

All the boys will train on Sunday morning at Bishopston (look forward to a hard session) at 10.00am and then 12 boys will be nominated to play against Dunvant (a matrix team).

Things have moved up a notch now...

PS: Can you make sure you have replied to the requests.
