On a perfect day for rugby in Luzern, the Dangels opened their league season again the Basel Birds.
It was great to have Basel arrive with plenty of players: 8 plus 3 completely new ones and we played 10 a-side.
The early season rustiness was clear to see with lots of unforced errors & poor ball-handling in the opening minutes.
Basel’s first-up tackling was not the best & we exploited this to score a series of tries.
Against more experienced sides, we will need to be more clinical with our finishing, but today just smashing through the tacklers was good enough.
Big THANK-YOU to Melly & Julia for playing with the Basel team.
And to Andy for stepping-in for our absent coach Chris. We are lucky to have TWO great coaches.
Final Score: 71:0
Tries: Cap’n Mac (6), Esti (2), Lea, Petra, Melissa, Wespi, Meli
Conversions: Capn’ Mac (3)
(Yes, that’s 3/13 = 23% success rate)
Devil of the Match: Richi – having taken a great support line & taken a try-scoring past, completely in the clear she ran straight through the try area & put the ball down over the deadball line.
Angel of the Match: Cap’n Mac – apparently greediness pays off 😉
