Detailed Description of Game:

Trinity played Vikings at Trinity in Round 10 of the Under 16 Rugby Competition on 5 August 2017. 

The first 15 minutes of the game developed into an arm wrestle with both packs of forwards attempting to dominate play. 

Will Mooney, Michael Boyd and Harry Newby all made strong runs early in the game.   Harry Winters, Jayde Coggan, Liam Mullins and Ben Lauko were driving into the rucks and Trinity looked to be worrying Vikings. 

Unfortunately, the always dangerous Vikings back line clicked into gear and in rapid succession their flying winger scored two tries.   Only one try was converted and Vikings led 12 to 0.  

Trinity came back hard with George Harborne securing a long kick downfield from Vikings.   Guy Nesbitt-Titheridge made a driving run down field.   The ruck formed with Jack McCarthy spinning the ball to Tom Croker who completed a run around with Eric Brown.   This resulted in Croker breaking the Viking’s line and stepping the full back in a 50 metre run to score the try.  The try was unconverted and Trinity trailed 12 to 5.

Unfortunately for Trinity that was as close as they got to Vikings as firstly the fly half and then the outside centre scored slicing through the Trinity backline defence.   At half time Vikings led 24 to 5.

The second half commenced with some good work at the lineout by Michael Cooke and Liam Mullins but turnover ball to Vikings resulted in their inside centre cutting through to score out wide.   The try was converted and Vikings led 31 to 5.

Jack McCarthy at halfback was trying to lift Trinity and good runs around the corner from Mason Whyte, Jayde Coggan and Max Flack put Trinity on attack.  A timely intercept by Vikings ended the Trinity attack and from the next phase in play their winger scored out wide with Vikings now leading 36 to 5.  

Disappointingly, Trinity dropped their heads and this allowed Vikings to secure the ball and kick ahead.   The bounce of the ball favoured Vikings and their centre scored beside the post.   The try was converted and the referee blew full time with Vikings running out winners 43 to 5.

Best and Fairest: 3 – Jack McCarthy, 2 – Will Mooney, 1 – Tom Croker and Harry Newby
