Colts 1 LOST 17 – 24

A much improved performance saw Colts 1 go down to the defending premiers 17-24. Whilst there was much to be happy with about the game, it was equally as disappointing that we allowed Uni easy points at times and this will be the focus as we prepare for the other undefeated side in the competition this week in Randwick at Coogee Oval.

Defence was the theme for the week and there was a marked improvement in both our first up tackles and our alignment however, momentary lapses into poor and older habits still crept in under fatigue and Uni were good enough to take advantage.

A significant reduction in our errors in possession gave us the momentum to put Uni’s defence under pressure and, as it happens in rugby, this sustained pressure produced two tries in the second half to reduce the margin to 7 points and give us the bonus point for the match.

The result was characterised by TRUST and BELIEF, two very strong factors in success however, we were far from perfect and the up side is that we still have a way to go. A penalty try on half time to Uni was somewhat controversial however, we should not have found ourselves in that position in the first place so that is what we will focus on this week.

Special mention to Josh Hickey for scoring two of the sides three tries and his cover defence which was equally good.
