Royal Arsenal Early Summer League ’18 Match Report – (Wed June 6th)

Woolwich Arsenal 8 Tag ‘em and Bag ‘em 4

Woolwich Arsenal knew what they had to do to get into the early summer league Championship game next week: win or draw against the best team in the league.

Not an easy job then, but the side captained by Johnny Hoskins rose to the task magnificently.

From the start, Woolwich’s defence was rock solid, not giving an inch against a side who’ve average almost 10 points a game this season.

Jules, Katy and Johnny repeatedly formed an unstoppable wall against a range of attacks.

The attacking effort was good too, with quick passing and darting runs, Woolwich took the lead early in the first half and followed it up with two more tries to make the score 4-1 going into the break.

The pressure ramped up yet again in the second period, with TEBE using methods both foul and fair to try and break through the defensive line.

Luckily WA’s defence remained disciplined in the face of some aggression and over-physicality.

As usual, the pace of Ovie, Errol and Zarine caused plenty of problems for Tag em and Bag em and it wasn’t long before WA racked up six points.

Eventually the pressure told and TEBE started picking up some tries of their own. But they couldn’t manage a girl try and that proved crucial as the score sat at 4-6 going into the final stages.

After withstanding some more attacks, Woolwich put the game to bed, with a spectacular effort from Ashley; withstanding an aggressive wedgie to shovel the ball to Jenny, who darted in for the try, leaving the score at 8-4 and WA in the final next week.

It was a thrilling game from start to finish as Ashley claimed a well-deserved (wo)man of the match and Woolwich Arsenal proved once again that they can mix it up with the best teams in the league

Royal Arsenal Early Summer League ’18 Match Report – (Wed May 30th)

Royal Arsenal 7 Tag em and Bag em 10

In one of the more heated games – literally and figuratively – of the league season, Royal Arsenal narrowly lost to league leaders Tag em and Bag em on Wednesday.

RA started strong, taking the early lead with some fast-paced attacks and held up well defensively, despite the heat and humidity that made the game an uphill struggle.

Kyle and George showed off their attacking edge as usual, cutting through the saggy bags (or whatever they’re called) with some nice attacking lines.

TEBE had plenty of attacking flair of their own though, and levelled the score up to 3-3 as the teams trudged off for halftime and well-earned drink.

RA struggled to get going in the second period, and conceded a flurry of tries just after the break, swiftly going down 7-3.

But showing the resilience that’s been the trademark of the team this season, they fought back with scores of their own, including yet another try for Jenny.

The score was 8-7 going into the closing stages of the game before a girl score sealed the win for TEBE and resigned Royal Arsenal to the first competitive loss they’ve had since the second week of the season.

Still, it was a spirited performance from a quickly-improving side, and the Royals are still in contention to be in the championship game by the end of the season.

Woolwich Arsenal 3 – Beasts from the East 1

After a number of misfires against Beasts from both Arsenal sides in recent months, WA finally broke the losing streak against their East London rivals.

Right from the opening whistle, Woolwich were on the front foot, moving the ball along the line easily and taking the lead with loanee Kyle breaking the line and opening the scoring.

Considering the slick attacking on show from WA, it’s surprising they didn’t hit double digit scores in the first half alone.

Ashley, Ovie in Jules continuously troubled the Beasts defence with some bursting runs, and were backed up by an immovable defence that hardly missed a tag all game.

However, despite having the lionshare of the ball and looking better in attack, some marginal fouls and goal-line spills meant WA couldn’t put the game to bed until the final whistle.

Luckily, the defence was even more impressive than the attack and the Beasts never looked likely to get back into the game once they went behind.

The win moves WA into third place in the league and needing just one more point to ensure they’re playing in the championship game in two weeks.

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.
