Yarm School Boys-U15A vs  Red House School
On: Saturday, 22 Sep 2018
Venue: at Home

Saturday 22nd September saw Yarm School U15 take on local rivals Red House. The day arrived and all the lads were up for the challenge and eager for a game of rugby. The conditions were perfect with a brisk cold morning.

The game started and went well for Yarm. We secured the ball and set the tempo of the game early. Yarm played a very aggressive forward game keeping the ball secured in the pack until the backs were ready for their attack. The boy’s started to move the ball down the line well and utilise the players on the wing with some pace. The Red House defensive line couldn’t stop the strong ball carries of Charles Copeland, Mark Proberts, Alex Wild and Sam Dunkin. This led to a few tries being put on the scoreboard early. The Red House boys showed excellent determination and worked hard to challenge the boys in the physical side.

After a few errors on the Yarm side we conceded a few penalties which led to the Red House boys pushing Yarm back to their own 5 metre line. This put the boys under some pressure and the reacted well. They had a strong attacking line and used this well to get the ball out wide and relieve the pressure from our own 5 metre.

Into the second half saw some chances and George Kitson came on with Will Armstrong to chance some dynamics of the group. Into the second half the team continued to show growing confidence and work together as a team.

The team worked well together and showed they are capable of producing some excellent rugby and I look forward to see how they can develop this.

Well done boys!
