Dis­ci­pline needed

time lead.

The sec­ond half car­ried a sim­i­lar pat­tern with both sides tack­ling well.

Louie South­wood in par­tic­u­lar came up with some bone crunch­ing tack­les in the cen­tres.

South­port’s sec­ond try was a lovely bit of rugby. Scrum half, Michael Law­ton fed Max T who per­fectly timed an in­side pass to Char­lie Watts who screamed through the de­fence on a 60 me­tre run to score in the cor­ner 12-0.

Fleet­wood then scored next with an in­ter­cep­tion try and de­spite Max’s valiant ef­fort, they scored un­der the posts. South­port held out till the end to se­cure the win. Great ad­vert for the game well played all.

The South­port U13 chara­banc rolled into the won­der­ful sur­rounds of Liver­pool Col­lege to take on a Col­le­giate side that has typ­i­cally been a hand­ful, pro­vid­ing many a good match up over the years.

South­port were clin­i­cal from the off, with Ol­lie Ben­ford at scrum half set­ting up speedy wheels Kris­tian Barker for an early score down the flank.

Lewis Fusco promptly dou­bled the lead, pick­ing up the ball from a ruck and scor­ing with style and flair straight through the mid­dle of the park.

Sam Cock­will then scored a brace of tries, the first com­ing cour­tesy of sig­na­ture strong run­ning to break many an at­tempted tackle.

The sec­ond try for Sam was quite dif­fer­ent from the first, break­ing away from play at the half way line and run­ning the full dis­tance to touch the ball down.

Although Col­le­giate scored one, the fi­nal try of the half was by James Pilk­ing­ton. Mis­chief by Peter Thomp­son won fast ball at a ruck, cre­at­ing space for a de­ter­mined James to dot down ably in the right hand cor­ner to make it 25-5 at the break.

Thomas Pilk­ing­ton got mat­ters started in the sec­ond half, demon­strat­ing great power and drive to get a well-de­served try.

Sam Cock­will then got his third of the morn­ing, steal­ing the ball at the break­down and charg­ing bull-like to the line. Strong work from Dil­lon Smith at half back re­leased Thomas Pilk­ing­ton to strike once again down the right touch­line.

Se­bas­tian Carlisle Col­lett scored his maiden try in South­port colours, a fab­u­lous solo ef­fort, just re­ward to a player who has been play­ing some great rugby over the last few weeks.

And so, just as he had got the match un­der­way, it was left to Kris­tian Barker to wrap things up; the ball was passed nicely through the hands of the en­tire back di­vi­sion and the fly­ing winger used his pace to get over the white­wash.

Sally Pringle, Team Ad­min­is­tra­tor for the U15s, is de­lighted to up­date on the re­cent Sale Sharks DPP as­sess­ment evening and pro­gres­sion.

Ses­sions took place on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 12 at Ruskin Drive in St He­lens with 13 mem­bers of the South­port u15s squad nom­i­nated either by the club, their schools or in­vited back. Two of the boys were un­able to at­tend due to in­jury so they will be as­sessed at the first train­ing ses­sion.

South­port RFC is de­lighted that of the 11 who at­tended, nine of those nom­i­nated have been se­lected.

Su­perb rep­re­sen­ta­tion for South­port RFC and six schools across the dis­trict; Birk­dale HS (5 nom­i­nated); Christ The King (4); Deyes High (1); Mer­chant Tay­lors (1); Orm­skirk (1); Range High (1)

The nine in­vited back rep­re­sent 25 per cent of the group to­tal!

Well done to the suc­cess­ful nom­i­na­tion and to all those who at­tended and those that didn’t make it this time, keep work­ing at it and aim for the next.
