Match Report & Information

This was a slight step forward from last week's game against Whitstable's 1st XV, where we snatched victory in the dying moments when we realised that playing together was better than being an awesome bunch of individuals!

This week, it is as simple as this...

We scored 44 points when we played a very simple, and agreed, game plan. When we did this we went forward (even in defence), we had the game management and strategy to get the 'W' without doubt. We exited well, we operated with control between the two 22s and we were deliberate and patient in their 22 (we even had an area (top secret) that allowed us to be mercurial).

Folkestone scored 29 points when we deviated from our agreed game plan, when we started bickering and throwing our arms up. Folkestone got their heads up and were really back in the game, until we got back on plan for the final 10 minutes.

The message has got to be "on-plan for 80 = smiles in the showers".

If this team puts together an 80 with the quality that they showed, at parts, someone is going to have an unpleasant afternoon!

Well done, for the good bits. Onwards...
