After a very funny week of weather Tewkesbury tigers under 12’s hosted a very strong team from over the boarder , Malvern under 12’s , this was not going to be easy as these as we know can be a very tricky side and are usually good in the backs .
first period.
Tewkesbury tigers under 12’s opted to receive the ball from kick off , from the off Tewkesbury went at Malvern with every thing they had and to be fair the forwards and backs really looked good playing well and winning every thing from the break downs to open play . This created space out wide for Ben Peters to show what he’s made of and go over for the opening try , converted by Charlie Kendrick 7-0 . Next up after more good work from the forwards and with Charlie ,Henry and Sean working well together Brendan lewellyn crossed the line and again Charlie Kendrick stepped up and kicked the extras 14-0 . Then from the kick off Ben Peters caught the ball stepped the on coming Malvern defense and used his pace and skill to weave his way up the field to score in the corner , harder kick but again Charlie Kendrick slotted the extras period ended 21-0 .

2nd period
Tewkesbury made several changes , which whilst trying to settle gave Malvern a chance to get back in to the game and get a foot hold , this allowed them to cross the line themselves twice but both times there kicker missed , Tewkesbury never settled into this period and it ended 0-10 but 21-10 over all .

3rd period .
Tewkesbury made more changes whilst Malvern stuck again with a settled side , Tewkesbury’s side again found it hard to get the intensity back in this period that they had in the first period but after some sustained pressure Charlie Kendrick picked and drove over the line from a few yards out then converted his own try . Period ended 7-0 and 28-10 over all .

4th period .
Tewkesbury now fully in controll made more changes . Tewkesbury this time started to really go at Malvern but while they pressured Malvern near there line and with ball at the back of a ruck lost control for Malverns speedster and probably best player picked it up and broke away to score under the posts conversion missed . Tewkesbury then went at Malvern but could not cross the line them selves this period and it ended 0-5 and 28-15 over all .

I’d like to say that the backs looked really good today and the forwards played great .
