U7 Dragons continue their winning ways
By Matt Allen
The Ridgetails pull the Dragons through to continue their overall unbeaten season
On a bright and sunny morning, we welcomed Wisbech to Deeping RUFC, both teams fielding 2 sides and there was plenty of action packed tag rugby from both sides.
The Ridgebacks continued their winning habit winning all 4 of their games with the Horntails finding things a little tougher losing out 3-1 to our guests.
The Ridgebacks demonstrated their pressing in numbers game which proved too much for Wisbech, forcing them backwards and into mistakes which the Dragons capitalised on scoring many "breakaway" tries. The running, support play, and passing were in evidence and even with disrupting the flow of the matches by making substitutions during the half rather than half time, the team played really well and fully deserved their wins.
The Horntails kept to their pre match goals of not giving the ball away by making silly mistakes i.e. running out of touch, passing forwards, wild / panicked passes and stand in coach Dave Musson stated that the team played some really good tag rugby with great support play. Despite losing 3 and winning 1, all the games were very close with only the 1 try separating the teams at the end of each match.
The weather was fine, the hot dogs were tasty, and everyone enjoyed the morning. Overall the Dragons continued their winning ways but the manner in which the U7 squad is playing is a joy to watch for the coaches and spectators, win, lose or draw.
