Well-drilled Topsham U9s overcome Cullompton
Fears of lack of concentration unfounded as Topsham tackle their way to victory
On a cold winters morning Topsham took on a well drilled Cullompton U9's.
In the warm up drills the signs were ominous that we might struggle with concentration levels not at their best.
With time however we switched on such that by kick off we were ready to go into battle.
Cullompton's biggest player charged at full speed at the Topsham line only to be floored with a thumping tackle from Oliver.
This spurred all the other Topsham players in to action with Huey, Luke, Sam and Daniel tackling their hearts out.
Tackling became infectious.
I counted 6 occasions through the match when we turned the ball over through a full set of seven tackles.
When we had the ball we retained it very well and got pushed into touch only once which was brilliant.
As the game went on George, Henry, Harrison and Chappers made impressive runs with the ball.
Daniel scored a great try in the corner after a fluent move.
We even started to pass the ball before we got tackled which is something we should work on more.
Man of the Match;- Daniel
