Nuneaton U15's v Old Laurents U15's 43-19

Todays forecast: 100% chance of winning!

After a weeks rest, Nuneaton U15's showed immense power, determination and desire to topple the Old Laurents winning streak. The cold, wet weather seemed to be the ideal environment for Nuneaton U15 to showcase their skills against a team that was highlighted as 'one of the best in the area'. An early try in the 4th minute by Charlie W. showed that Nuneaton had a strong attack and were capable of pushing back the Old Laurents defence. Max C. was on form with his kicking and 7 points were awarded to Nuneaton. Nuneaton were quick on their feet and their offloads reached each others hands leading to them gaining the majority of possession. 5 minutes on, the first of a hat-trick of tries by Alfie B. was scored and yet again, Max C. used his boot to fling the ball over the cross bar. 14 points up, the Nuneaton attack persisted and slick team work and strong rucking supported Liam P. to drive forward to score the 3rd try in the 17th minute. With 28 points on the board, Nuneaton looked the stronger team and the team looked to have the desire to win. A brief lapse of concentration allowed Old Laurents to gain 7 points in the 20th minute but Nuneaton carried on to try and gain possession of the ball however, with driving rain and slippy conditions Nuneaton gave away another 7 points in the 26th minute. Clearly, wanting a win from this meeting, Nuneaton pushed on and drove Old Laurents back to aid a second try by Alfie B. As the teams separated for half time, the score was 28-14 to Nuneaton.

It appeared that the rest opportunity for Nuneaton last week had had its desired effect as when the second half kicked off, Nuneaton appeared full of spirit and stamina. Within 5 minutes of kick off, the hat trick of tries by Alfie B. was concluded but unfortunately, a change of direction prevented Max C. from converting the points. Nuneaton were high in spirits and continued to fight for the win. The strong determination of Nuneaton had a brief interlude when Old Laurents successfully crossed the line in the 40th minute but this stoked their fire and Nuneaton continued to press on. In the 42nd minute, Max C. was able to have clear sight of the try line and by using his speed, was able to put another 5 points on the tally. Old Laurents looked tired and Nuneaton used this opportunity to drive forward, push Old Laurents back and with the power of Harvey M. another try was gained.

With a final score of 43-19 to the home team, Nuneaton were elated and it was obvious that they felt rejuvenated after their break. This game was a positive end to what has been a tough but positive 2017. The team will be moving into 2018 with a determination to win and a desire to be known as a formidable force in the Midlands.

Merry Christmas to all the Nuneaton U15 players, families and supporters!
