Sweden v Netherlands

Recommended Posts

Netherlands were the better side. Stronger, more skillful and better organized. 

They took a 2-0 lead midway through the first half, followed up by a try minutes later. 

Sweden score a try shortly afterwards to make the score 4-8.

From the re-start against the strong wind a Netherlands player caught the ball and ran a try in! 4-14

Another goal just before half time made the score 4-16. 

Sweden had a hard time against a solid orange wall and the away side were always dangerous going forward.

Netherlands got their third try of the game after an hour, but the kick from out wide hit the stanction. 

Sweden got a player sin-binned after a punch-up with about 15 minutes to go and Netherlands scored another try. This time the wind drifted the kick just wide. 

Sweden came close to score a try at the end, but a couple of last ditch tackles by the dutch kept the score at 4-24.

Well done to both teams in the wind, the rain and the sun.
