P6 Best Tackler and Best Sportsman 7th October

After Last week's games it was evident that we needed to work on our tackling. It is something that must be constantly practiced in a controlled and safe environment. With this in mind we split the group up into smaller teams of equal tackling ability and size. The coaches then went through the techniques with each player and then let the players experience it one on one. This was then put into a game on smaller pitches. The best tackler on the day was Alexander. Alexander is one of our nippiest players in attack and showed great technique in tackling low and bringing down the big guys. Tackling below the ball with correct head placement was encouraged and Alexander displayed this throughout. Best Sportsman goes to another new comer in Jamie. He is a pleasure to coach and is getting his confidence up as each week passes. Jamie picks up on the game well and puts this into practice with good passing and running. He put in some great tackles too and like the rest of the squad has plenty more in him too!!

This week coming sees a stern test against Ballymena and Dromore at Shaw's Bridge. The men will need to be on their game this week!!

P6 Best Sportsman and Best Tackler 30th September

Charlie was far and away the busiest tackler on the day. At one stage of play he made five tackles in a row without anyone else getting one in between. Not only was he industrious but he was also displaying great technique with good head placement and determination. Well done to Zak who has just joined us this season. Zak is learning really well and catching up on the other boys, some who are in their 6th year of rugby. Zak shows good timing of the pass, is gaining confidence in his tackling and has some good pace when he wants to show it!! We are glad to have you in the squad and look forward to your future development.

Player of the Week - Dylan Gray

Tackler of the Week - Archie Kennedy

P6 Best Sportsman and Tackler 23/09/2017

For the next few weeks, the super skills trophy will be renamed Best Tackler. This is the one main area that lets this team down as a group. Anyone who has seen us play will not doubt the attacking ability but it is what we do without the ball that needs addressing. With this in mind the focus for the games against Cooke were on tackling. James Nelson must have been doing some super work with his Dad over the Summer as he showed great skill and determination as he "chopped" down all Cooke players, sometimes they even had the ball!! Keep up the good work James and we are all delighted with your progress.


Matthew won best sportsman for his great attitude and all round efforts shown. Matthew has a fantastic approach to his rugby and always listens and contributes thoughtfully to discussion. He continues to show great skill and is always to the forefront both in attack and defence. Keep up the good work! The rest of the boys did well too but must concentrate on their approach when defending, pushing up together as a defensive line and executing the tackle effectively. We look forward to seeing them play this weekend against Cooke and Civil Service.
