Captain’s Christmas Blog

Firstly I want to wish all of our supporters and their families a Merry Christmas, hope you’ve all enjoyed the festive period.

Over the past 2 months we’ve been able to build nicely and gain some momentum picking up 4 straight league wins, which has been a huge confidence boost for the squad, coaches and back room staff.

During this period we have had some challenging matches against tough opposition, a real stepping stone for us was the performance we showed away to Aberavon. We were clinical in our finishing but also showed a backs against the wall attitude in our defence.

Looking back at the games against, Aberavon, Swansea, Carmarthen Quins and RGC our attack has been sharp but what has been the deciding factor has been our defensive performances.

There is a real togetherness within this group, as I’m sure some of you may have seen at the ‘Stars in Their Eyes’ event. The boys have put in a huge amount of work on the field and in training to be where we are now, but I have to give huge credit to the coaches who are always challenging and developing us as a group of players.

The squad is always described as ‘young’ but I firmly believe we have the potential for great success, due to the qualities and values we have as a group. On a personal note, I strive to uphold and drive these standards whenever possible, as this club means a lot to me.

Moving on to the away fixture against Cardiff, obviously it wasn’t the result we wanted, however, as a Captain I cannot fault the effort of all 23 players who put their bodies on the line, time after time.

I don’t think it has been a coincidence that in the games we have won this year that the support has been outstanding and that was no different at the Arms Park. It really felt like a home game and when I think back to the roars from the crowd it fills me with a huge sense of pride and I know the boys feel the same!

Thank you for everything, we go again Saturday! #Olé
