Hamilton v Highland 07/10/18

Hamilton run Highland closer than ever before

It was cold, wet and windy as the game got under way at Laigh Bent but the rugby on display throughout the game from both Hamilton and Highland U15's was spirited and skillfull.

In the first 15 minutes it looked as though Highland would be run away runners in this game after they scored three try's in quick succession, some good play from Jacob Scully at 10 for Highland creating space for the backs to run in for easy scores all of which were converted by Scully.
Hamilton came to life after their slow start and began putting phases of play together and getting go forward ball, as a result prop Aaron Burgees found himself running onto a short pass 5 meters from the line and his power took him over the line to register Hamiltons first score, conversion by Lewis Robertson. From the restart Highland secured the ball and looked to drive forward again, but were thwarted albeit momentarily, by some aggressive Hamilton tackling, however they could not continue and Highland scored out wide to regain a three score advantage. The final score of the half came after a penalty was awarded to Hamilton 10 meter from the line, a quick tap by Jamie Bruce saw him pass to Nos 8 Ewan Brannan who identified a mis match and ran over the defensive Highland line, conversion by Lewis Robertson.

At halftime the Hamilton coaches asked the team to improve their support lines and put Highland under more pressure when not in possession of the ball.

The half time team talk seemed to have fallen on deaf ears as within the first five minutes of the second half Hamilton had conceded two try's, and where a lot of teams may have given up the fight the young bulls rolled up their sleeves and were determined not to conceed any more scores.The intensity of the tackle was sometimes on the verge of illegal as both teams went at the final 25 minutes. Hamilton scored twice through the forwards with Burgees and Brannan again getting on the scoreboard and with improved line speed and defensive lines the young Bulls were able to nullify Highland in the same period.

With all the players and the ref on the verge of hypothermic it was a relief when the final whistle sounded. Highland were justified winners but Hamilton can take a lot of positives from their game and the knowledge that they were able to get a lot closer to Highland than ever before, progress is slow but it is there.

After some hotdogs and pasta the Highland boys/ coaches were looking forward to a 3 hour trip home where a certain McD's would no doubt be visited .
