Royal Arsenal Early Summer League ’18 Match Report – (Wed May 23rd)

Royal Arsenal 9 Steve Thorpe’s Destoyers 7

Royal Arsenal found the cure for aggressive STDs in the early fixture, taking control of the game quickly with a pair of tries and a rock solid defence.

The early lead could easily have been higher if not for a few marginal fending penalties that killed off some promising drives.

But the Destroyers attacked with plenty of aggression themselves, quickly levelling up the scores at 2-2 after 10 minutes.

Jenny, fresh from a high scoring performance the week before, put the Royals back in control with a fine burst through the middle, leaving two defenders for dead.

And with half-time approaching, Arsenal looked set to hold onto the lead, before a handful of defensive miscues meant the STDs managed to run in two more tries and the period ended at 4-4.

It took Arsenal a bit of time to find their feet in the second half. Defensive disorganisation meant the Destroyers managed to gain the advantage in an end-to-end contest, despite Kyle’s best attacking efforts.

But with the game on the line, Arsenal finally put the foot on the gas and took control. The defence re-emerged as an impenetrable unit, refusing to budge with their backs to the wall, and with George, Alistair and Andrew charging at the STDs, it was only a matter of time before Arsenal regained the lead.

In the dying seconds, the Royals went ahead for good, Kyle once again proving too hot to handle, and the defence iced the game with some more solid work, earning a well-deserved victory.

Kyle won man of the match honours, although the whole team deserves enormous credit for holding up under pressure, particularly some stunning tagging from Abbey, Rhianna, and Ann.

 

Woolwich Arsenal 14 Kool and the Gang 9

Woolwich Arsenal had a tough act to follow after seeing Royal Arsenal scrape over the line in a dramatic game.

 

But they easily lived up to their billing as the second highest-scoring team in the league in the late fixture.

The rugby was a joy to watch as Woolwich sliced through the Gang’s defence over and over again, Jules linking well with Ashley for a handful of scores and Ovie giving defenders fits all game.

Johnny and Katie got in on the try-fest, and in truth, the game was over as a contest by half time with Kool and the Gang trailing by a huge margin.

The opposition fought back bravely in the second period, but it wasn’t enough to overturn the first half deficit and Woolwich ran out comfortable winners in an entertaining contest.

Jules deservedly claimed the man of the match award for a sterling mix of attacking and defensive play.

Now Woolwich go into the final two weeks of the season real contenders to trouble the top of the table if they can follow this game up with some more good performances.

LAST WEEKS MATCH REPORT

Royal Arsenal Early Summer League ’18 Match Report – (Wed May 2nd)

Woolwich Arsenal 16 – Steve Thorpe Destroyers 5

After a comprehensive thumping of the Friendly East London side last week, Woolwich Arsenal followed that performance up with a second win in a row, this time against Steve Thorpe Destroyers.

The same formula as last week paid dividends again as Katy and Ashley finished off slick attacking moves and racked up the tries as Woolwich’s passing was fast and furious once again.

Gary and Johnny controlled the centre of the field and there were plenty of bursting runs on show from Errol and Jules in a complete performance that showcased all of the teams strengths.

The win means Woolwich are now top of the table in the early summer league and are the team to beat.

Royal Arsenal 5 – Beasts from the East 15

Royal Arsenal faced a tough assignment this week, taking on the reigning champs from the East London League, the Beasts from the East.

The game got off to a bright start with Arsenal scoring two tries to take a two point lead, but the Beasts quickly got back into the game with a flurry of tries in the first half to stretch out a large gap between the sides.

A few teething troubles were expected early on since Arsenal had a handful of new players in the side, and a lack of chemistry explained a disjointed first half performance.

But by the second period, the team was working much better together defensively as well as putting in a much improved attacking performance.

There was plenty of promise on show in Arsenal’s side, with new players Alistair, Rhianna and Michael all playing brilliantly against an experienced side, and with another couple of week’s experience under their belts, this Arsenal team will improve rapidly.
