Stockton Senior Colts 5 Gateshead Colts 31
Stockton Senior Colts struggle to get back into gear after a long lay off.
First game back after missing many games due to the weather and Xmas break we saw ourselves face an unbeaten well drilled Gateshead team.
The pitch was heavy going for both teams and Gateshead were first out of the blocks. They through the ball about and used their quick backs to good effect. Our basics let us down with a good few missed tackles that you can not afford in this type of game.
We fought on but could not break Gatesheads strong defence and were caught out when they broke away.
We didn't give up, we stuck to the task and eventually rewarded with a push over try.
Thanks to Gateshead for a good game played in the spirit of rugby.
Next Sunday we combine with our U17 squad to take on Middlesbrough Colts in the National Cup 1st round.
This is a knock out competition and we are training twice this week on Tuesday and Thursday starting at 6.00pm
Thanks to Louise for the food and the parents for their support.
