Older op­po­si­tion can’t halt P4 charge

Rutherglen Reformer - - Drive time extra -

Cam­bus­lang Rugby Club’s mini sec­tions trav­elled to sunny Kil­marnock to take part in the Ayr­shire an­nual tour­na­ment.

There was some fan­tas­tic rugby played in the blis­ter­ing heat un­der the watch­ful eye of Clyde, the Glas­gow War­riors’mas­cot on June 5.

The P3s had three fast games, win­ning one and com­ing close in the other two. The six boys who turned up played some great rugby with Ar­drossan and Kil­marnock boosting their num­bers. There was bril­liant pass­ing run­ning from Liam O’Neill, Mag­nus Boan and Brodie Tem­ple­ton.

The P4/5 team, made of eight P4s and two P5s, was en­tered into the P5 tour­na­ment. The older op­po­nents didn’t de­ter Cam­bus, who took the tour­na­ment by storm and ran out wor­thy win­ners.

Colin Camp­bell, who helps the Cam­bus coaches, said:“There is a real bunch of tal­ent emerg­ing in this group of play­ers. The whole team gelled re­ally well to­gether and played some sparkling rugby.”

Ben MacDougall and Con­nor Ferry made some good runs and were well sup­ported by Fionnlagh McGhee, Mur­ray Tem­ple­ton and Jamie Kennedy. Alexan­der Foun­tain,

Duncan Camp­bell and Henry McConnell put in some good tack­les and sup­ported well at the break­down as did Sam McCarthy and An­to­nio Yard­ley.

Colin added:“This group of P4s are go­ing to be feared by other teams.”

The P6/7s teamed up with Cum­ber­nauld. Two close games were con­tested with Cam­bus win­ning 7-6 against Kil­marnock and los­ing 8-5 to Ar­drossan.

Finn McGill was im­mense in at­tack, car­ry­ing the ball for­ward again and again. Daniel Se­nior showed he was a great team player mak­ing nu­mer­ous tack­les and se­cur­ing the ball for his team at the break­down. Kerr McLaugh­lin put in a typ­i­cally fear­less per­for­mance and was the top try scorer in the day.

Char­lotte Boan made her re­turn from in­jury and scored the first try of the day as part of a strong at­tack­ing per­for­mance.

The team fin­ished in sec­ond place af­ter a great team per­for­mance.
