U11 Boyne Vs Greystones

Our first real squad turn out of the season 49 players out of our 60 players,  Some close fought games Greystones key players opened up a hole in all 3 teams defences,
My knights team were strong in holiding position, rucking counter ruck scrum and line out, it was just the tackling that allowed greystones to win 2 out of 3 matches. We won line outs and scrums that were not our ball for the first time which is a great step forward, well done to all.
