Greenuk 29 - 48 Novotania
Greenuk failed to make a good start to the competition as the Novotanians gave them a difficult time.
The game was opened with a quick try from Novotania's Koert Olsen who smashed through the Greenukish lines to get the first try.
More Sluggish play thought the first half from Greenuk was capitalised on by the Dingos when Regx NÃƒÂ©met and Alex Davis got themselves some tries making the score 21-0.
It wasn't all lost for Greenuk as they managed to get a try down from some good kicking from Gary Thomas and good running from Howard Jones. This meant that the score was 21-7.
Strong Novotanian Mauls made light work of the lighter Gerrnukian players, this led them to another 2 tries before the half was over from Koert Olsen and Michael Martin.
In the Second Half the score was 36 - 7. The Greenukian Players had a sudden epiphany when they managed to get a try and a drop goal in the first 10 minutes. But the Dingos were Still playing Rugby and the Morale of Greenuk was destroyed when the Dingos got an unconverted try.
Greenuk played well and in the 65th minute they got a free kick which boosted their score to 22. The Novotanians got their final try quickly after a Greenukain player dropped the ball and Alex Davis quickly ran past.
The last try would come in the 74th minute when Greenukian hero Gary Thomas got the final try of the game to bring the Score to 29 - 48.
Hamland 19 - 37 Craitland.
Craitland played well in Morfaga, Hamalnd as they convincingly beat Hamland.
The First half was relitavley dull compared to the game held an hour before in Greenuk. Nothing but 2 Craitish penalties gave the fans something to cheer about in the first 20 minutes.
The Hammish supporters had a bit of fun too after a try was scored by Kieran O'Donnel, but Menzies Ramsay failed to convert leaving the score 6-5 at half time.
David Chentzansio of Craitland opened the scoring instantly as hamland seemed to lose focus after half time. The kick which opened the second half slipped out of the Hands of a Hammish player and went out, the Craitish players then passed the ball out to Will Mortensen who easily got the try. It was then converted to give Craitland 13 points.
Will Mortensen then got his second try later after some sloppy Hammish passing led the Craitish player to have a run up the park to get his try. This was then converted to give Craitland 20 points.
Hamland began to redeem themselves when they got their try, after an imaginative run from Lewis MacLeod, a ruck formed on the Craitish line and the Hammish players just got the ball over the line to give them a try, which when the Hammish kicker redeemed himself, they got a full 7 points.
The Score was now 20-12. Craitland began to intensify their game. The Craitish VÃƒÂ¤n Ãƒâ€œma gave a fantastic run to give Craitland a try, but the kicking of Craitland seemed to fail when only 5 points were gained. Then Cqin Zyxveldtsen got another try merely minutes ater, but the Craitsh kicker missed again.
Now the game was 30-12, the Hammish seemed completely demoralised. A good pass let an outside player gain 20 yards, then another pass let Rory Gray get his first try. This was then converted.
The clock had now struck 78 minutes and the game was looking over. A Hammish player made a bad knock on which gave Craitish player Jon Pellegrino a shot at a try. he got it, this was then converted before the 80th minute. The game then ended as Hamland failed to make any move before the ball was kicked out. Leaving the score 19-37.
Bobalainia 15 -28 Jamzinia
This was the game with two very strong sides. Taking place in Bobalania, the home crowd expected the first home win of the competition, it would turn out that their hopes were in vain.
Jamzinia opened the scoring after some 10 minutes of rucks and mauls. They managed to capitalise on a high tackle which gave them 3 points.
Bobalania then got ahead when they scored the first try, thanks to Barrington Blade.
Bobalania and Jamzinia both played equally well, such as when a ruck came close to the Jamzinian line, the defence held strong stopping Bobalania from getting a try.
Bobalania got their second try in the closing minutes of the first half. This was thanks to Beau Boyce, who steamed across the line and got his try. but the try was not converted.
In the Second half the game changed to Jamzinia's side. Jamzinia's Martin James opened the scoring. This then was followed by some amazing kicking from their number 10, Gavin Thorne.
After this another try was scored. This time by Lee Gravel. he threw himself over the line and Gavin Thorne continued his great kicking.
The score was now 17 - 15. Bobalania got a chance to get ahead again with a knock on by William Williams. Unfortunatley, unlike Jamzinia, Bobalania's kicking wasn't so good, and the kicker was booed for at least 8 minutes afterwards.
The booing was halted by a try from Jamzinia's James Royle, who came on as a substitute for Harry Layton, who had a blood injury. This was kicked easily by Jamzinia and the home fans were left asking why they couldn't kick like that. With the score at 25 - 15, it looked like Jamzinia were going to win. Gavin Thorne got himself a drop goal and fired the final nail into the coffin. It was certainly not Bobalania's day.
The game then ended, with some thoughts about kicking and some disappointed home supporters.
I hope my wee stories were enthralling
