A disappointing loss today but many many positives to take from the game.

It became apparent that we have one of the best defences in the league with a stout display but on that is becoming consistent and ever-improving.

We played well overall in what is our second game of the clubs history however in some facets, it is showing too. The lads can’t wait to get back to practice to right the wrongs and keep improving on the positives.

Game MVPs

Team MVP: Jonathan Davies, played on both offence and defensive line and the opposition knew when he was in. The man is a machine and is a huge asset to the team. Dumfries mentioned a few times that they do not like going up against him. Funny that neither do his own players in practice. He will do a job where required and give it 100%.

Offence MVP: Chris Armstrong, great running and a never say die attitude. Nearly got a TD on the board but not for a silly motion in the backfield causing it to come all the way back. We see Chris getting a stack of TDs in during the season…

Defensive MVP: The whole defence played as a complete unit and the number of team tackles was amazing to see! But the player who made the most impact was Alex Coatsworth at ROLB. His disruption in the backfield and his great reads resulted in their offence scheming away from him. Alex completed the day with sacks, tackles for losses and all-round team performance.

Special Teams MVP: Richard Coulson Using his electric pace, he was downfield on every play whether blocking or tackling and stood out in a very good special teams unit today. Not only just for his pink socks!!

Practice next week, as we prepare for the visit over the border again to Inverclyde.

Have a great Bank Holiday
