Tring triumph in league opener

2 much for Westcombe Park.

Well that was a good start. Tring 3's beat 'emel, the 1sts beat Westcombe Park and the 2nds beat Westcombe Park also. I will go in order. The front rows were facing a couple of fairly formidable bookends. But with Nick Brown, Jonny Morgan and Grant Wattleworth they were always going to be in for a tough day..and that’s what they got from a hugely controlled front row who, after 3 scrums dominated all day. Jonny Morgs carried time and time again making serious impact into a WP side that made their tackles well. But the sheer number of big carries coming from the whole pack just took their toll. George Hayes had the most carries, he loves carrying so much he should be called mule, he loves to carry and is too stubborn to go down unless two or three players force him there. With Ian Jarman doing a great job at 6 and Mr reliable Hixxy at 7 the back three of the pack dominated their positions too. Dan and Briggy in the power house cleared everything and carried strongly as well as dominating the line out with great arrows from Jonny. I never forget the lifters too and we just had too many options WP stopped competing. This didn’t help as Tring created one of the best rolling mauls I have seen –ball to the back immediately and a perfectly straight controlled maul led to a great try. Robbie Johnson was superb. I don’t think he missed the target with a single strong pass which helped the cool headed Will Mitchell to run the game and Tring just played rugby varying attacks from everywhere. Max Thorne is a finisher for sure and tackled anything that came near him stopping two scores from the opposition. Noah Jarvis and Jack mixed things up and were a real handful all game. Interesting their centre looked more like a prop than Jack! Elliot ‘wheels Byfield was closed down a couple of times before the defense gave an inch too much and he went through the gears getting one try from a superb chip ahead by Noah and another try where, if I was going that fast I would want airbags, he flew in from 30 yards. Big Sam McCartney came on to add strength and running (which is the last thing you want) Scoot came on and fitted into the boots of Jonny Morgs like he was a mirror image, definitely a great talent, Tom Burrows also came on with a faultless display showing both attack and defending very well. Jonny Ironmonger finished the team off from the bench. He just destroys ball carriers with great ease. Dan Boniface was the final sub but he didn’t get on. 52 – 0 Gareth whispered in my ear piece is was too risky to throw the game away at 70 minutes when I suggested he went on. Charlie Goss Lambourne was ball boy/Jordan. Great result. WOW selection is tough but a great start for the 2017/18 Allstars.
