Match Report

Lowestoft & Yarmouth 0 Norwich Lions 37


Lowestoft & Yarmouth 0 Norwich Lions 37

The Lions travelled to Lowestoft and Yarmouth 2's  with the hope of continuing their good start to the season. A strong side was able to be selected for the fourth game in a row, mixing youth and experience.

The Lions had been playing well over the last couple of weeks and started this game full of confidence and commitment to the cause. It was good to see Neil Dunleavy back in a Lions shirt and he was able to add an extra element to our attacking and defensive work, including his vocal abilities!

The first half went to plan with lots of pressure being put on by the forwards, allowing space out wide for the backs to finish well. Tristan Smith and Cameron Horide (on senior debut) scoring particularly good tries. The first half was finished off with a typical Dunleavy blitz defence which lead to him intercepting a pass and sprinting to finish under the posts.

The second half was very much the same, with pressure from the Lions pinning L&Y back in their own half resulting in more scores and a hat trick from Smith. The game was unfortunately stopped at about 60 minutes due to what was thought to be a serious head injury to a Lowestoft player. We have had word that the player is fine now, but with little memory if the event. The player also offered Jim Wright his thanks for a job well done on his First Aid.

At this point the match was already won with the Lions up 37-0. Special mentions to Robbie Bridgstock and Freddie Askham who really kept the pressure on the opposition with tactical kicking and sniping runs and released our backs at every opportunity. MOM went to Askham for his link up play and distribution.
