Dragons on Fire!
By Matt Allen
The smallest Dragons continue their fantastic season
On a damp and cold morning we travelled to Peterborough Lions with an almost full squad complete with a couple of new members to the squad making their debuts, Ben and Harry.
Prior to the match we had a coaching session focusing on passing the ball before a tag was made, to open up the pitch and get the runners away. All players managed to grasp the technique and were asked to put it in to practice during the match in addition to their normal objectives for match days.
What a performance from both teams in the squad! Strong running and a keen determination to tag the opposition is what we have come to expect from these mighty Dragons, but the manner in which they looked to pass the ball to team mates prior to being tagged was a joy to watch! Both teams looked to move the ball and progress forward as well as put in their attacking runs, it proved to be a deadly combination.
This squad of players are developing very well and learning new skills week by week, which is enhancing their enjoyment of playing tag rugby and producing a great run of results.
Thanks again to the players for producing a couple of great performances, very pleasing for the coaches.
Well done parents for braving the damp weather and thanks to Chris for reffing his first half of tag rugby.
A return match with the Lions on Sunday at our Deeping home.
