Crocs show class to claim sec­ond suc­cess

Halifax Courier - - Sport -

Isaac Mitchel to race 60 me­tres to score an out­stand­ing try.

Fur­ther for­ward drives lead by Eru­vieoghene Inije and Seb Cowley helped cre­ate more quick ball for the Crocs backs, and it wasn’t long be­fore Strick­land latched onto a clever pass from Matt Beswick to race over for his sec­ond try.

Fur­ther tries came from Ju­lian Sykes-Molina, Ri­ley Dean and Matthew Beswick as Mid­dles­brough had no an­swer and the sec­ond half be­came a onesided dis­play of free at­tack­ing rugby. Old Brods u17 20 Kid­der­min­ster Caro­lians 27 Brods u17 slipped out of the Na­tional Plate at the semi-fi­nal stage af­ter los­ing to a very good Kid­der­min­ster side.

Brods had a great start which showed them dom­i­nate the op­po­si­tion with great skill and de­ter­mi­na­tion in cre­at­ing a first try by Toby Robins af­ter a great maul and some skil­ful kick­ing to gain ground.

De­fen­sively Brods were strong and a sub­se­quent try by Myles Wat­son saw them lead 10-0 at half time.

How­ever, Kid­der­min­ster came out fight­ing in the sec­ond half, cap­i­tal­is­ing on any penal­ties Brods gave them.

Too many er­rors and missed tack­les al­lowed them to score a suc­ces­sion of four tries to take them into a 10-24 lead.

Cap­tain Cole Wil­son re­sponded with a try fol­lowed by a great sprint by Tom Wil­son and sup­port play by Jimmy Hod­kin­son to see him take the fi­nal score of the game.
