Dragons overcome toughest challenge of their season
By Matt Allen
Winning ways continued after a fantastic morning of tag rugby
We welcomed our guests from Boston on a grey and cool morning but the tag rugby played by both teams kept the players and spectators warm.
Boston proved to be a very capable team whose support play and tagging gave the Dragons their toughest challenge this season. The major difference between the teams was the collective tagging and "pressing" by the Dragons that forced the Boston team back on many occasions, however they didn't make as many mistakes as previous opponents when under pressure.
The Dragons yet again showed their speed and great support play when in attack, and the ability to pass before the tag is proving to be a great tactic when opening up space for team mates to attack.
The Ridgebacks and the Horntails both won their matches and the final match saw all the Dragon players combined and rotated and ended with another win for the U7s squad, maintaining their overall unbeaten season.
The performance particularly impressed coach Matt Allen who stated "That was the most impressive and effective display of tagging I have witnessed in all my years of coaching tag rugby"
Well done to the whole squad.
