It's come together!
By Louis Hill
Great win for U16s against strong Heaton Moor side
I've said for a while that when this team click they have some real potential and today was the day when it really came together.
We were welcomed by perhaps the biggest set of forwards since England took on Argentina in 1992, however the Whitty team worked together and to a man got stuck in. The hosts had a strong squad of 35+, county and academy reps as well as some good scalps including local rivals Stockport.
After 5 minutes we scored the first try which was perhaps the best try I have seen the team score (after 12 years of involvement!). Started with some excellent forward work, options off 10 and then the backs working some great moves to allow Henry to step and score. Simple but effective rugby which was really great to see.
The game was hugely competitive and well matched but the coaching team was delighted to see how well the boys played together and for each other. Quite simply when a group of talented individuals play together as a team and for each other you have a winning combination.
There were numerous stand out performances and too many to mention individually but each and everyone played their part and took their opportunities. Thanks boys, great to see it come together.
Now we need to keep the momentum - continue to work together, communicate, take your responsibility and enjoy it!
A very happy coaching team!
