Seery: Ev­ery­thing just went so wrong for us


Rutherglen Reformer - - Motoring Guide -

Cam­bus­lang Rugby coach Jamie Seery ad­mit­ted he couldn’t be­lieve his eyes as the team crashed to their heav­i­est de­feat in his time in charge.

Cam­bus’s three match win­ning run came to a hor­ren­dous halt as they were de­stroyed by a ram­pant Al­lan Glen’s team.

They were down 41-0 at half­time and the game only got worse from there, with David Bolton and Euan Jones scor­ing the Cam­bus tries on a mis­er­able day for the Coat’s Park men. Jamie ad­mit­ted, with un­der­state­ment: “It was not a good af­ter­noon.

“The first 10 min­utes or so it was pretty even, and I thought it was go­ing to be a close game, then they scored a cou­ple of tries back to back and we col­lapsed from there.

“It’s the heav­i­est de­feat I’ve had as coach and ev­ery­thing just went wrong.

“Our legs seemed to get heav­ier and heav­ier as the game went on.

“We didn’t have much of the ball and as it got worse you just start to lose track men­tally and make more and more mis­takes.

“We did score a cou­ple of tries late on so the guys did keep fight­ing un­til the end, but it was aw­ful.” Now Jamie is de­mand­ing a re­ac­tion from his team this Satur­day, when they re­turn home to play An­nan.

And he hopes that his side do not get too down­hearted after the thump­ing last week­end.

He said: “Ob­vi­ously it’s em­bar­rass­ing.

“But in the grand scheme of things we have taken three wins from six games and are in the mid­dle of the ta­ble.

“We need a re­ac­tion, both in train­ing, and on Satur­day, and to get things mov­ing in the right di­rec­tion again.

“An­nan are a good team and our games against them tend to be tough, close matches.

“We need to come out with a bit more fire and make sure that we get the five points again.”

Bad day Cam­bus­lang were soundly beaten
