On Saturday, April 28th the Yeomen-Lions kicked off our 2013 season with a pre-season match against the Stoney Creek Camels in Stoney Creek.
It was a great day to play rugby as the sun was shining as we took to the field, a mixture of veterans and rookies to the club. We had a bit of a shaky start to the game and appeared to be disorganized, lacking communication with each other. However, as the game continued veterans began to communicate with one another and we became comfortable playing with our rookies helping us to begin to click, such as when were able to ruck over and clear the ball so our scrum half could get quick ball out to our backs so they could have a good run in which we gained yardage moving forward.
Despite losing, in the end we played a solid game of rugby that demonstrated we have strong skill sets on which to build for our next match against the Aurora Barbs on May 11 th. Welcome and congratulations to our new members, Kate, Meredith, Candice and Andrea, who was also Stoney Creek’s choice as Player of the Match.
