Yesterday, St Therese’s Rugby Team drove down to Llandarcy to participate in the rugby. The team consisted of, Nathan Dev, Luca O’ Keefe, Nathan Wells, Kian Owens, Ben Hill, Jayden O’ Keefe, Dylan Webb, Harvey Mellows, Reilly Piper, Leo Davies and Harry Lambert (Although he couldn’t make it). As they arrived they practiced regularly. As the first match came around, it took a wrong turn. They lost 10-0 and Nathan D was already injured. But as they were already short of one player, despite the short recovery time, Nathan D chose to play on.
Then the second match came around. We tied 5-5 with Nathan D scoring the try. The third and final match came about, we accepted defeat at 10-5, conceding a last second try. With Nathan W scoring the try for us. All and all, the results were disappointing, with the players dejected and beaten. Alas, we had to accept defeat. We interviewed the coach of the team, to see what we thought. “I’m really pleased with how the boys played. They gave one hundred percent effort and all ten played every minute of every game. While we did lose two games, we created chances to score tries.”
We have a cup game against Upper Nedd on Thursday 16th of February, we hope to see you all there.
Well readers, that’s the summary of the rugby match. Let’s hope we do better next time!
