GREAT game (again). Great team work and a Great Result
Woodford are historically a strong side with big strong players and skill to match. Today like last week we would be challenged once again by a tough side.
But unlike last week we were confident from the start. Woodford seemed to be likewise and the first 20 minutes were very competitive with scores being even. Each team tested the other and both defences stood firm,
Then the Basildon boys with the confidence of a great defensive game decided to get ambitious in the backs and take on the Woodford boys with skill and clever attacking play. Woodfords defence could not counter and Basildon gained control.
The forwards started to dominate with some strong powerful rucking winning the ball enabling the backs to take further advantage to once again produce a very entertaining ALL round TEAM performance that Woodford could not cope with.
It was such a solid team performance by all. The confident performances by so many were pleasing for all to see and a credit to the boy’s hard work in training and the commitment of the coaches.
Many could be mentioned by name for a potential man of the match, it should be awarded to the Woodford coach who did a fantastic job as referee and was an example to all on fair play.
Well done to all who played and the others who attended training and stayed to support
