Manly Brothers v Hardboard Devils
The first try came from one of their three really tall guys which was followed with a conversion. On the next passage of play Carter? Makes it equal and converts. This set the tone for the game with the Brothers team holding out their forwards on the try line.
On the next attempt Will broke free for a amazing length of the field try. Coming back the team tackles strongly and they pop one over in this tight game. Despite holding them out on the try line they charged and scored using their tall people to best effect.
After a big half time talk from our coach the boys came out with a big run from Charlie to start things off. However a couple of tries from them and we were playing catch up. Despite some hard tackles from our smaller players and some great runs we were losing, but we were not done as Sully scored a great hustling try on the buzzer to ensure the boys went away with their heads held high.
We fought harder in the second half with our defense and tried not to let there big players run strait through us. But their big players kept on running. By that stage we were all tired but still kept our heads up. We scored more tries but they also scored. In the end when we thought we had a chance of winning they scored and converted. It turns out we lost by two tries. We were all happy that we played a well fought game.
