Derby 68 - Warriors 8
Despite a record defeat I thought first half the warriors looked like they held their own against much stronger opposition. Unfortunately the old cliche that if you travel with 13 the numbers game will catch up!
I have arranged a home fixture so im hoping we give these boys a better game not just a first half. Full credit to derby they lent us players second half when injuries and tiredness kicked in.
Yes cheers its good to see new ravens up in the premier I havent seen that since I started with the bears years back! If you get a free weekend nigel im happy to arrange a friendly - in fact even a midweek friendly would be good!
This was a bit of a milestone in terms of how far each respective club has gone. We had to relocate to a new ground for various reasons, ultimately to ensure club survival. Cov Dragons now are fielding a second team which is kicking in nicely this season. Both teams fielded 18/19 guys with us lending a player or two to ensure a fair matchup. I was impressed with both sets of players attitude and the fact that the average age had to be 20/21!! For the first time since 2011 I have players fighting for places which is never a bad thing!
I just need to uninstall bad union (yawnion) habits (kicking ball away on 1st tackle/Running into touch, etc)
