Manawatu U13 vs Wairarapa U13 Match Report
Manawatu U13 vs Waiarapa U13
Weather : Strong wind but sunny day.
Grounds : Nice and firm.
Took us a while to get our hands on the ball from the start. Break downs we were a little light and were gave away too many penalties for not releasing player before attacking the ball and off side.
On attack we stuck to our pods off the 10 which gave us plenty of go forward and allowed us to secure the breakdown more effectively. Really opened holes with a pass of the pod.
HT : 22-12 Manawatu
Started very well, systems worked well with the new halfback controlling the pace of the game well. Game started to open up with strong defence and the less willingness of Waiararapa taking it forward. Played to the wind effectively and attacked wide when space was there.
FT : 57-17 Manawatu
