Another really good team effort from the U9’s team on Sunday – Louie, Willow, Oscar, Nathaniel, Bear, Max 1, Max 2, Max 3, Reuben & Rowan and well captained by both Willow and Max 2!
Despite the torrential rain it was great to be able to field a squad of 10 players, which for the first time, included 3 rolling subs. Although there were a couple of early Devizes tries, the two teams were quite evenly matched throughout but tries, from amongst others, Oscar, Max 1, Bear and Max 3 saw Pewsey edge ahead in the last ten minutes. This was followed up by some very committed tackling by all the team which slowed Devises’ scoring and at the final whistle, it appeared that Pewsey had likely edged it by 10-8.
A good game to watch and Devizes, both players and parents, were a pleasure to host. Well done to all our players, still a few things to work on but the enthusiasm shown by all the players was great to see.
