Great showing on the day from the lads.
D2 started off the day with great ball control. They prevented green bay from getting the ball in the first half and was able to capitalize on team play to put 20 points in the first half. Support was the name of the game with the forwards controlling open field play allowing clean ball throughout the half and helping to rack up the points.
The second half had more of the same with the backs and forwards working together to put up another 17 points. Green bay was able to capitalize on some wrc penalties to get 2 tries. The boys head north next weekend to take on metro ii for the second time this season.
The sharks were hungry for the second game. The game was a bit scrappy throughout. Ball control again was the name of the game. Doug at 9 worked well with DJ at 10 to use quick ball to but quite a few points on the board. Green bay was a bit frustrated with a bit of dirty play in the loose but wrc kept their head and capitalized with more points on the board.
Sharks bring it to Oshkosh next weekend for their next league match.
Three cheers for Adam and Hippy.
A lot of good rugby today from the boys. Quite a bit to take away from the weekend. D2 showed some big heart stopping the Banshees on the goal line quite a few times. The scrums settled in the second half and the defensive line outs got adjusted to be able to disrupt the Banshees throw ins. Unfortunately the day saw the Banshees capitalizing on the wrcs mistakes and went ahead 12-19 on the day.
The sharks started a little slow in the second game after having a long drive and waiting for the first game. But the boys came together and were able to put up some big number so in the second game. David and Doug were able to captain the guys around the pitch which lead to many scoring opportunities. Bear was the man of the match with his deadly runs right up the middle for 2 tries.
There is an off week for the D2 to regroup and the sharks are back at it at home next weekend.
WRC heading up to MN to take on the Banshees.
D2 @ 1PM
D4 @ 3 PM
Wrc d2 pulls off a good win against a solid jazz pigs side.
25-19 final (Updated score)
Next up metro at home 9/26.
Unfortunately, there was a scheduling snafu and there will not be a D4 game against the Jazz Pigs this Saturday.
Practice will be at their sports complex this week at 5:45PM. Look for updates next week as we might be able to use the lights at firemens park.
Practice will now be starting @ 5:45 at the sports complex as we have less light going into the fall.
