Match Report
Cathedral School, Llandaff Boys-U10 Red vs  tbc
On: Wednesday, 17 Oct 2018
Venue: at Home

The U10 Reds faced Rougemont in their first game, playing up a year group it was a tough challenge physically, but the rugby played was exceptional at times. Jack W leading the charge with some great play making and individual scores to show his rugby prowess. Hard tackles form Ieuan W and a very welcome return to the pitch for Benny Mc who made an immediate impact coming on as a sub. Rougemont tested CSL with some strong ball carrying but the Reds did well to fight off the Newport school time and time again, making a great start to the festival.

The Second match saw the Reds take on St Clare's Porthcawl, who were an aggressive and physically imposing side. With plenty of ferocity, in both defence and attack, the match was a great spectacle for the spectators, again Jack W at the centre of CSL's attack, who linked very well with flying winger George D, to set up a fabulous length of the pitch try with a slickly timed off-load to finish. Hard tackles flew in from powerful forwards Tomos S and Cassius G, who made a fantastic try saving tackle in the corner, driving his man out into touch. A closely contested game and a big challenge to rise to, but the reds showed their class by staying competitive in the game.

The third match vs Llandaff City Church in Wales was another tough one. Facing an aggressive team who played at a fast pace, CSL had a big challenge ahead of them. Great heart and commitment was shown by the boys, who battled hard all game and some great individual efforts again. Miles H and Jack D looking to create in attack, running hard and big tackles in defence by Jack W and Adam S. But unfortunately organisation and structure proved to be the difference between the two teams.

The last game of the festival was against Pencae, and by this time the Reds were fully prepped and charged ready to dominate. They started the match at a furious pace, scoring several quick tries courtesy of Jack W, George D and Ieuan W who barged through the majority of the opposition to score his try. Defence was much more organised and some brilliant efforts from George H and Jack F who tackled several Pencae flyers into touch. A great afternoon of rugby and some good progression through the afternoon. Well done boys, have a good half term.
