Streatham-Croyden RFC

Oh I Do Love Playing Away!

With the boys giving it their all at last week’s game against Crawley RFC, it was evident that the team was still tired from the mid-week cup match on Wednesday. Our number 8, J. Williams played out of his socks, making three assets, in the first 3 tries of the game which gave Streatham the lead before half time. The boys lacked discipline the first moments of the second half and gave away two silly tries in the opening 10 mins. Moral dropped between the and it was up to skipper D.Wayne to try and lift the team for a final push before the final moments of the game.

The team’s fitness got the better of them and they were struggling to hold off the Crawleys onslaught of attacks. The team a defence was showing cracks and in the dying few mins Crawley broke through to grab a winning try. A deserved win, but bitter loss for SCRFC. Head coach commented on the performance as needing “improvements, which we can work on, at training” so it looks like the boys are in for a heavy training session in the preparation and lead up to next weeks league game.
