U13s Away v Blackwood 02/10/2016

A glorious Autumn morning for our short trip to Glan-yr-Afon Park for one of our most highly anticipated fixtures of the season against local rivals Blackwood!  A local derby that never fails to stir the emotions and today was no exception!!

A very physical match with great ball handling, attacking and defensive skills displayed by both teams.  Blackwood scored the first and only try of the first half after finding a hole in the Warriors' defence resulting in a half time score of 5-0.  

The second half was a similar story to the first with another breakaway try for Blackwood.  The Warriors weren't able to respond despite some nail-biting attacking play so the final score remained at 10-0.

A great game of rugby played with the usual passion you would expect of a local derby!  A few injuries sustained during the game though - Durny and Dan recovered well but Callum B (aka Steve!) has sustained a broken wrist on his first game back after recovering from a broken rib so will no doubt be out of action for the next couple of months.  Wishing you a speedy recovery Steve from all the Warrior family!

Man of the Match - as voted by the supporters: Mason Parfitt, aka Chopper!!
Outstanding defensive play throughout with plenty of fearless tackles 'chopping' down the opposition when it mattered most!  Well done Mason!!   🏅👍
