UniMill u20 7 – 23 Villager u20
The VFC u20s completed a pleasing win over hosts, UniMill, on Friday evening. The Vikings’ started off like a house on fire, with Jason Marcus rounding off an excellent passage of play after solid ball-retention through a number of phases. In the first half, our opponents seemed content to use their pack to try and subdue us – a strange tactic as our defense was solid and their 13 and 15 were excellent attackers. In particular, our set piece worked well – until injuries to prop Adin Mesane and lock Imaad Soeker disrupted the pack as a cohesive unit.
As a result, we allowed the hosts back in the game by losing our shape and not sticking to our structures. We held firm, however, and finished the game off with an excellent individual break by Joel Murphy. From the ensuing ruck we saw an outstanding offload in the tackle by Ash Reid, sending Junaide Christians crashing over.
Scorers: Tries: Jason Marcus (2), Junaide Christians and Joel Murphy.
Pen: Jason Marcus
