Vardre vs Mumbles Pirates

The Pirates crossed the M4 on Sunday for a visit to Vardre RFC.  Once parking was secured in the busy heart of Clydach and the raging torrent crossed, on the rickety bridge, rugby could commence, or it least it should have.  The home team only had 9 players so a 13 a-side game was arranged with 4 Pirates at a time playing for Vardre (well done for that).

The Pirates started well, putting to good use the work practiced on Tuesday night.  In the first quarter 4 quick tries were posted by Matt G, Will, Jon and Matt S.  The second quarter saw a change of the 4 players playing for Vardre and they stiffened the home sides resolve with a try by Tom T and someone else (let me know) to show from it (and Will scored for Vardre).  So there was a healthy lead going into the second half.

The next 4 players for Vardre made a significant impact bringing the scores back level at six apiece (nice tries from Matt S).  The final quarter saw some fine work in the tight from the forwards and slick handling down the line for Will to score a hat trick of tries and let the Pirates close out the game 9-6 (I think).  There were two Players of the Week on Sunday, Matt Straw and Tom Truscott, though this week there were a lot of other contenders.

Well done to everyone for playing for Vardre and for playing hard; it certainly made for a more even game and it was enjoyable to watch.  A good victory this week-end gives us a good base to test ourselves against Dunvant when they come to visit on Sunday 19 February.  We plan for a 10.15 meet to build towards an 11.00am kick-off.
