Chippenham Teach U15s a Tough Lesson

SRFC 0 - 44 Chippenham

The U15s showed their charitable side when they travelled to Chippenham.

Playing against potential D&W Cup opponents, with a small but experienced squad, they produced their worst performance of the season as Chippenham helped themselves to a 44-0 romp. With the Ashes about to start the boys seemed to invoke the 1986 England cricket team with their “can’t tackle, can’t kick, and can’t pass” approach. SRFC made too many mistakes, giving away ball and territory far too easily. In fairness, Chippenham were well drilled and good value for their win. They neutralised SRFC’s ball carriers, with strong gang tackling, and slowed down any ball the boys did manage to retain. They cleverly moved their point of attack away from the breakdown and put the ball simply through hands until they found space. It was a good lesson in the importance of simple skill execution.

The U15s fought gamely to the final whistle but Chippenham were too strong on the day. Their larger squad showed good teamwork and were able to interchange with no visible effect on performance. The good news is that the 1986 England team came back with the Ashes. The U15s have had a great start to the season and need to go back to the basics they have demonstrated so well up until now. Onwards and upwards, boys, and don’t forget training on Wednesday evening. Lots to work on!
