The visitors to Underhill Park this Sunday were the ever combative team from South Gower. Another hard fought local derby was fought out in the rain on the slopes of the junior pitch. The Pirates fought hard, but a few lapses in concentration allowed the visitors some easy tries to gain a lead of 21-0 with a few minutes to play. At that's where it finished. There was an animated conversation with the South Gower coaching team and the match finished with a few minutes to play [let me know if the official record is something different to this].
Anyway after being on the wrong end of 8 and 10 try thrashings last year this match was a huge step up by the team, including a very committed physical performance. It bodes well for the return fixture and the rest of the season. Player of the week was Connor with a very committed performance.
Training on Tuesday at 6pm at Underhill park. Let's have some focus and see if we can build on the week-end's performance.
