Heath U 14’s vs Roundhegians

23.4.17

Last day of the season brought a double header against Roundhegians and Morley.

First up was Roundhegians on the No 1 pitch overlooked by the Roundhegian clubhouse. 

The match was kicked off by Heath 1st Five Eight Harry Stevens and the home side were quickly on attack steadily working their way into the Heath half.  An initial eventual attack led to the Roundhegian forwards being held up over the line by a committed Heath defence but from the following scrum the home sides big No 8 bulldozed over the line to open the scoring.

From the kick off Heath got use of the ball progressing up the field winning the feed to a scrum just outside the home sides 22.   A penalty for offside saw the Heath boys continue their seasons philosophy of running the ball until a turnover allowed the home side to start an attack that was only halted by an excellent tackle from Adam Ayub on the Wing.

Eventually the pressure on the Heath try line was too much and the home side crossed again to lead 14-0 at half time.

The second half began with Heath spending a good spell in the opposition half with a good amount of possession but without being able to convert that pressure on the home team into points.  Despite some committed defence the bigger home side eventually crossed the Heath try line again shortly before full time to finish the match with a 19-0 win.
