So – it was another match against Lambeth Tigers. Anita gave the boys an excellent team talk at the start of the match and encouraged an already slightly despondent team to dig in and focus on doing their best and work together as a team. Alvaro put himself forward for Captain and gathered the boys to discuss their game plan.
Xavier took a robust tackle on the wing which finished his ankle off and he had to come off and the Colts down to 8. We finished the first half circa 5:1. Darren encouraged the Colts to come back out fighting and they did. Some excellent spells of determined play ensued, the Colts without exception worked hard to press and hunt the ball down.
Hats off to the Colts they deserved more for the effort they all put in.
We are in need of a BIG win next week. Thankfully there are no more Tigers for a while….Let’s turn this season around people.
