AMAZING.... first win of the season for Stanley Rangers. We were so
close last week... So the coach decided to change tact and formation for
this game with Grigglestone. WOULD THIS WORK... MORE TO COME...
Forwards more central playing with a full back sweeping up from the
back. It was a game of four quarters and what drama we had until the
final whistle...Stanley Rangers were caught cold within the first few
moments by one of there own. He smashed through the defence and scored a
well deserved try for the opposition Morgon Speight. This woke the
players up from their sleep and the fight back began. They listened to
the instructions given and played together as a team played impressively
with vigour and endeavour and dare to try things.
Jack Davenport playing an unfamiliar position for him at scrum half
orchestrating from the ruck. The passing and attacking was beyond belief
and wonder. Kian Newton making runs and inroads through and passed the
opposition defence. The forward power of Declan Hinchcliffe, Hughie
Hargreaves and Beau Miller it worked out to perfection and the wizard
like wing skills of Alfie Sykes - it all came together brilliantly and
Tyler Kelly playing a on the other wing motoring on and upwards we had
it all in the first half. But it was still tight.
Special mention to Morgon Speight playing for the opposition without
Second half we thought we had put it to bed. What a third quarter a
hat trick of tries for Alfie Sykes split and ran through there defence
like ribbons with full length tries on two occasions. BUT THE BEST WAS
STILL TO COME WITH THE ICING ON THE CAKE Beau Miller got hold of the
ball ran split and found massive holes in there defence without problems
and scored two magical tries like watching the character the Flash. What
an attack and magic quarter... BUT...10 MINUTES... TO GO and what we let
them back in . We shut the door but left it wide open again... Two
unanswered tries took it level and the defence was brilliant but we had
once last set of six... The team took it to the opposition and all the
way to there line with a try in the corner by Kian Newton. WHAT A GAME..
WHISTLE BLOWN.. GAME WON...
