MRUFC U13’s see out 2018 in Style

MRUFC U13’s see out 2018 in Style

The Under 13’s hosted a great side from Whitchurch on Sunday 9th December, in their final match of 2018.  We’re blessed with having 42 kids (2 full teams at 13 a-side) on the books now (albeit lately, we seem to have several with long-term injuries).  Whitchurch came along with one team and we managed the game into thirds to ensure all lads got at least 50% playing time.  At one point this resulted in a whole team substitution!

The Lads came out convincingly on top on the scoreboard. However, more importantly, they (and Whitchurch) played at all times demonstrating the core values that underpin our game.  U13 Coaches have been setting individual lads their own “in-game” targets. This might be leg tackles, passing the ball out, finding space, supporting each other – all based on the Sale Sharks DNA of Creative Attacker, Defensive Warrior, Relentless Athlete and Best Teammate) – challenging all the lads has resulted in dividends, allowing the players to identify themselves where they need to develop and where they can help others in the team.
A great end to the first half of the season and a firm foundation on which to build in the new year.
