Good performance from Penrith in difficult circumstances

Well, thought we might be in for a tough day at the office with our squad of 22 decimated to 12, mainly due to injuries. With a starting line up missing numbers 3, 6, 9,10,12 and 15, and up against last years 7's Festival winners, doom and gloom was being muttered by Gary and Quentin.

But oh ye of little faith! The lads put in a cracking performance with the forwards scrummaging and rucking their hearts out plus banging in all 4 of the Penrith tries. The backs had a tougher time with most playing out of position and working with 3 Carlisle players, who kindly swopped sides. When all said and done, it was a great game with both sides putting in thumping tackles, pinging the ball wide and giving each other a hard time generally.

Thanks to Carlisle for lending us 3 players, particularly`their scrum half, Sam. Well played.

PRFC try scorers were one apiece to Felix, Aaron, Luke and Zak P.
