Tackle count rises to heights

Littleborough U11

Greetland U11

BORO started the game confidently, passing the ball freely, and their lacklustre tackling seemed to be a thing of the past.

The whole team stepped it up another gear this week with two and three man tackles.

Excellent tackling from square marker helped Jordan Coupe with a hat trick of tries, a feat which earned him the magic moment accolade.

James Wright (most improved player) got in on the tackle feast when he doubled his tackle count from last week.

Greetland broke through the Boro defence once in the first half with a converted try to reduce the lead to three converted tries.

Joe Lord (player of the match) lead by example again with blockbusting tackles and aggressive runs, helping him cross the white wash three times.

Ben Fleming hit back for Greetland with a cheeky up and under, retaining possession by beating Boro to the ball and going over in the corner.

Jonathan McHugh (top tackler) topped the tackle count with his text book style technique.

Greetland gave us a good run for our money as always, but it was clear to see Boro had the edge, five tries in front at the final whistle.

The return match at the end of season will be another story.
