With the first game of the season being a home game for the young warriors all players were keen to start the year solidly and bring home a victory. Due to this side now playing in the Newcastle comp the Belmont side were an unknown factor and all the boys were keen to show what they had learnt in the off season and the new year of training. There were plenty of things that we will learn from out of this game but as a coach it was an impressive first up performance by all players and they can all hold their heads high. The pressure and commitment all players showed in defence was outstanding and the Belmont players just couldn’t get through this solid brick wall. There only try coming from a cross field kick with the ball bouncing over the wingers head.
In attack it was a joy to watch, for a new side the level in which we controlled the ball was pretty to watch, our new moves will come together with time. Our support play was good and will get better but to score 11 tries in our first game was a fine display of footy.
All players performed great, a job well done. Try scorers Gav Taylor 2, Mitch Andrews 2, Jerry Piper 2, Toby Ware 1 , Robbie Davies 1, Ollie Pritchard 1, Will Duck 1 and Brock Hunt 1 conversions Ollie Pritchard 5 , Brock Hunt 1 and Toby Ware 1. Refs points for the week Brock 3 Toby 2 and Jerry 1 . Final score Dungog 58 Belmont 6. See you all at training next week.
