Wath Brow U16s 12 Seaton u16s 32
Seaton arrived at Wath brow for this pre-season friendly with most of this seasons squad, 20 players looking for a good start to the season and came away with a great result. From the kick off, Seatons big forwards pressurised Wath Brow into many unforced errors with their quick line speed and ferocious tackling giving them good field position of which they never really took advantage off. Wath Brow defence proved to very good on their own try line. Seatons first try finaly came after Jamie Blamire steamed onto a perfect short pass from Jon Carl Bryan on the half way line who then fed the supporting Conor Fitzsimons inside to score under the posts. Dominc Smallwood converted. 0-6. Seaton scored their 2nd try through Blamire barging in from short range. 0-10. Wath brow then scored with their first period of pressure on the Seaton try line and converted. 6-10. Constant Seaton pressure meant most of the play was in Wath Brows half, and wiith Billy Southward at fullback returning the kicks well were allways in a position to score again, Southward actualy gained his rewards with a well taken try which Smallwood converted from the touchline 6-16. Seaton scored the final try of the first half when they worked a neat move down the blind side in which Fitzsimmons raced 80 yards for a brilliant try. Smallwood converted 6-22
The first 10 minutes of second half was a stalemate with strong defence from both sides until Fitzsimmons worked the blind side once more to sore under the posts 6-28.
The introduction of substitutes Ellis Mewse, Greg Benson, Logan Potter, Brandon Ray, Daniel Davies, Kane Bond and Harvey Robinson all made an immediate impact and they all kept up the tempo of the game.
Blamire scored Seatons final try with a ball steal from in front of the Wath Brow posts. 6-32. Wath Brow scored the final try of the game with a well worked try to give a final score 12 – 32.
Great pre-season work out for all players and very pleasing that substitutes made such an inpact when coming on at half time with Potter and Bond catching the eye with their pace and strength.
