By Felicity Dunn
A full strength TARFC U11s squad welcomed Brixham to TVS in glorious sunshine.
A full strength TARFC U11s squad welcomed Brixham to TVS in glorious sunshine. Adults, coaches and players were treated with four quarters of highly competitive, good quality rugby with both teams acquitting themselves admirably in a great spirit.
Torquay handed debuts to Ollie, Hudson and Lucca who slotted straight into the squad and contributed greatly to the strong team performance.
Torquay’s focus on strong support play combined with intelligent use of the ball contributed to potentially edging the contest. The rucks were fiercely contested with Brixham being particularly strong in this area and their tactical kicking caused initial challenges and great learning for our squad moving forward.
The debrief after the match could not pick out two players who had stood out amongst others demonstrating a strong team performance across the board. Both sets of coaches will be pleased with the first hit out of the season and our players red faced testimony to their commitment today.
