Another tough fixture for the boys!

Boys go down with heads held high, again!

Unfortunately the boys could only take to the field with 14 players today, with 10 now injured anywhere from their toes to necks!

Vale graciously agreed to lend us a player to make a game of it. However that was where graciousness ended.
In a physical game with Penrith missing 9/10/12/14 and 15, our backline featured, for a debut appearance at 12 and 13, the fine back row pairing of Mr Larkins and Cavaghan, Zak P moved from second row to prop and so it went on!

It took the first half for the boys to adjust to their new positions, going down 24:5 in the half as a result. The one try coming from Zak P.
However the second half was a different affair with the boys producing some ferocious tackling and mauling, and mediocre rucking, to win the half 17:15. The Penrith tries coming from our new centres with Ollie bagging 2 and Aaron 1.

Final score fair enough with the general feeling that the next match should be interesting!
