Coaches Corner- Reflecting back and looking ahead to Narbeth RFC!

After a good result at home against Newbridge RFC our thoughts quickly changed to preparing for another tough encounter away against Pontypool RFC who remain undefeated in the league! 


Preparation leading into the game was not great as due to injuries we could only train once. However on that one Thursday session the boys attitude was good, knowing although we did well in the Newbridge game there was still much to improve on moving forward into the Pontypool game!

We started the game confidently retaining the ball for multi phases, however without having that clinical edge. Pontypool to their credit quickly grew into the game and shared more possession which resulted in them scoring 3 decent tries in the first half. To our credit we kept battling and we were rewarded with a well taken try before half time to make the score 19-10 to the home team.


In the second half we struggled to retain the ball and with what little ball we had we did not play in the right areas. Pontypool gained momentum scoring a further 3 tries. We kept at it and due to some resolute defence prevented any further scores. The final score was 38-10 to Pontypool and no doubt the boys have learnt some invaluable lessons! 


Off the field it was nice that the majority of the boys stayed around and joined the pre planned trip on the way back home to Trecco bay.


Back to the on field looking ahead to Saturday we are back at home against a decent Narberth team who are coming off the back of a home win against Trebanos last week. We know we are in for another titanic battle however the boys have trained hard and are looking forward to the challenge!
