Colts 2 – LOST 14 – 45
The Manly game presented Colts 2 with the opportunity to repeat their efforts from their Norths win against a side who has also had a sole win in their season to date.
Our start found us in familiar territory, without the ball and in our 22. From there, a determined running Manly side ran in their first try in under 5 minutes. This continued, with Manly #12 running a mock, as we failed in our first tackle attempts, line out execution and as a result 2nds were playing a defensive game, without their share of ball. The halftime score rightly showed in Manly’s favour in excess of 0-30.
The 2nd half, Manly were required to respond to a more determined effort from 2nds. As evident in the enthusiastic support of line breaks with tries to Sean O’Brien and Tom Goddard. Several near misses should of resulted in a closer score line, for want of support.
Special mention & thanks to Tim Potter, our #4 & new goal kicker, successfully converted 2/2, one of these from the edge. With Penrith next round, not fielding a 2nds, leaves us with 2 competition games in the season. Warringah a must win game, and the 2nd placed side, Gordon last round.
