|August 1, 2020||9:20 am||Colts 2||2020||Round 3|
With Wests limiting their Colts participation to 1st Colts, 2nds Colts played a Non-Competition game against Sydney University. Such a game provided the opportunity for some positional changes with Dan Lucky moving to #15 and Ezra Paulo being promoted from 3rds into the #10 position.
From the game early stages, we provided Uni with numerous attacking opportunities through easy ball turnover. As a result, the score board started to tick over in Uni’s favour. Without the ball and field position, 2nds displayed gritty defence in shutting down Uni attacking efforts. As seen in the tireless tackling efforts from Ollie Wheatley (#4) and until he was Blue Carded, Nick Radford (#7).
Great to see pressure/legitimate great big hits from Ezra Paulo on his opposite number which through Uni ball turnover, finally provided us some time with the ball. Following such a HIT from Ezra, Dan Lucky timely injection into the back line in & combination with Tom Raggell saw a near miss try opportunity. Good news is…….minutes later, Dan tried again and this time Tom crossed the line and converted his own try. These phases of play showed speed and determination in their execution, & demonstrated what 2nds are capable of.
Some good signs, just need to bring it all together… at the right time and for much longer periods of the game.
