Tamworth 5 Broadstreet 43
Broadstreet Colts had bonus friendly away fixture against Tamworth before our league season campaign starts week. The game started with both teams attacking the opposition’s halves during the first few minutes of the game, however it was Broadstreet from a series of phases of open play, eventually breach the home team line.
The home team reacted well and came within 5 metres of the Broadstreet line after series of scrums and line outs close to the try line which Broadstreet managed defend successfully. The second try came shortly after which was an excellent team try with the forwards retaining the ball in our half and a quick ball out to the backs saw Charlie breakthrough giving an quick pass out to Louis on the wing who beat his man drew the last defender giving a well-timed pass back Charlie to score. Broadstreet scored another try before half time leaving the score at 0:19 at half time.
Second half started similar to the first but with Broadstreet ability to move the ball around quickly and well chased box kicks proved too much for the hosts who conceded another 4 tries in the second half. During this time we made lots of changes giving all players that travelled a run out, with people playing out of position. However through a series of penalties Broadstreet saw themselves defending the line in the dying minutes of the game, where eventually saw Tamworth breached our line.
