Under 15s Match Report by Phil Hargreaves - Wk 18
Rochdale Under 15s v Wilmslow
Sunday 4 January 2015

Rochdale U15s entertained Wilmslow in this 1st match of 2015 at Moorgate Avenue and although the ground was crisp, it was an ideal morning to play rugby and blow away those Christmas and New Year celebrations. Rochdale had a squad of 17 to choose from, which was a bonus to start the year.

Within 7 minutes Wilmslow carved through the Rochdale defence to score under the posts and convert the kick 0-7 to Wilmslow. 5 minutes later and Wilmslow again found the gap and with poor cover tackling from the Rochdale defence, broke through to score another converted try. 0-14 to Wilmslow.

It had been obvious to the Rochdale coaches before kick-off that the players had not got their rugby heads on and were very lethargic in their commitment to the game. Changes were made in an effort to boost Rochdale’s demeanour, but unfortunately Wilmslow had other ideas and scored again, the conversion was missed 0-19 to Wilmslow.

Unfortunately Bradley Fox was still carrying his injury before Christmas and Rochdale were forced into another change. Stephen Broad powered his way through the Wilmslow defence to score under the posts, the kick was converted 7-19 the score line. Wilmslow put their foot on the gas and a poor clearance kick from Rochdale, found the on running Wilmslow centre, to score another try and kick.

Two more tries and conversions followed quickly and the referee blew for half time with the score now at 7-40 to Wilmslow. Rochdale coaches gathered in their players and read the riot act in the hope that this may inject some pride back into their play. Unfortunately, Rochdale carried on in the second half in a similar method and Wilmslow ran in a further 3 tries before Rochdale scored a consolation via Nico Rizelli to make the final score 12-61 to Wilmslow.

Hopefully Rochdale will have learned a lesson from this display and a lot of hard work is needed on the training ground before their next game against tough opposition from Lymm.
