It was a very well-played and tough game of rugby on Saturday. The game started off evenly matched and it was the Stingrays who got on the scoreboard first with powerful and evasive running from Waylon. As the first half wore on, the Orca started to get the edge at the breakdown and our boys struggled to retain possession. The Orca did a very good job of slowing our ball down and forcing turnovers. The Orca ran in 3 tries in the first half after putting together some nice multi-phase play. There was great defensive effort from our boys and the tackling over-all was strong.
The 2nd half was similar to the first half with the Orca having the advantage at the breakdown. I was very proud that our boys did not back-down the whole match. They played hard and battled and finished the game on a good note with Davis dotting down for a nice try down the wing.
Man of the match goes to Davis who was all over the field on Saturday. Tackled his heart out and had several strong runs throughout the game.
