Match Report

Norwich 22 Diss 32


Norwich 22 Diss 32

This was the proverbial game of two halves. Although Norwich’s defence alignment had improved significantly since their defeat to Holt in the recent cup match they still found themselves 22 points behind at half time as Diss scored 4 tries, one of which was converted.

The coaches made some changes to players’ positions during the half time break and Norwich scored very soon after the start of the second half with right wing Jaydn Taylor touching down in the corner after slick passing by the inside backs had created space for him to demonstrate his pace.

Diss then scored another unconverted try. Score 5 – 27.
Five minutes later Josh Hambidge showed his pace and power to score a try under the posts. Unfortunately the conversion hit a post and bounced back taking the score to 10-27.

Following a passage of play in which both sides defended well Monty Snary, playing at scrum half in the absence of both regular scrum halves, broke clear and scored a try for Norwich under the posts which he converted taking Norwich to within 10 points of their opponents.

Unfortunately Diss then scored another unconverted try to restore their 15 point advantage.
Near the end of the game Norwich launched another attack and Josh Hambidge again showed his pace and power to score close to the touchline bringing the scoring to an end.

Norwich had won the second half by 22 points to 10 against opponents who had beaten them heavily earlier in the season.

The players, their parents and the coaches were delighted with this performance which was probably the best this age group had ever achieved. This should give them confidence for the next match in the Norfolk Youth Cup against North Walsham next Sunday.

Season’s performance to date. Played 16. Won 10. Lost 6.
