Colts A vs Loretto

There were encouraging signs at Merchiston for the preseason event and so we hoped to have built on that with a solid performance in the first game of the season away at Loretto (13th September). We started brightly in what was a highly competitive and at times very physical encounter in Musselburgh. We enjoyed much of the possession and worked well as a team looking well drilled and creative in attack. Our defensive line, albeit sometimes disorganised, held firm and we were very feisty and tackled well. Rucking was something that clearly needed to be worked on! A very good first performance against a decent Loretto team ended with a good 4-1 victory for the Ardvreck Colts A team! We clearly wanted the victory more than Loretto and that hunger and desire saw us home. An excellent first performance! (Mr Knock)
