Piranhas Vs Wests Orcas Post Game Review

Don’t you just love playing at Ian Galloway!! Even more so with short notice!

 

What a game Piranhas! We took this one to the ocean where we encountered several Orca Pods waiting to attack….

Unfortunately for us, the giant mammals outplayed us in tough conditions to take the win with 11 tries to 7.  After an 8 tries to 2 first half, I think we did remarkably well to come back, winning the second half 5 tries to 3. 

Although we suffered our first defeat of the season, the experience gave us the chance to focus on areas where we need to improve.  2 areas to focus on this week will be more TACKLING and holding on to the ball in close quarter confrontation……see you at training Wednesday.

Lots of great individual achievements for the week but a few special ones to note;

Walt – Congrats on receiving player of the day.  Walt was everywhere on Saturday. Every breakdown, every loose ball and every kick off.  Walt, you had an excellent game, committing physically to the ruck, always looking for a chance to steal the ball, and several great runs with ball in hand.

Tana – drastically improved this week, looking for ways to be involved in the tackle and tackle ball areas and adjusting to a new position.

Paige – also adjusting to a new position that she had never played before, continued to look for ways to be involved. Great work!

As a team I think we also found that we can’t always rely on our “hot stepping” and especially when its slippery. 

 

Again guys, very happy with the effort this week and I can’t wait for us to continue to improve weekly.

See you at training Wednesday.

Piranhas vs Wests Tigers Post Game Review

There were sightings of hungry Piranhas in the jungle over the weekend as we went Tiger hunting.

What a game to start the season!!

Congratulations to our Piranha debutantes – Edward, Tommy, Noah, Mana and Solomon.

This year poses an advancement in the skills and strategies that we began to implement last year, and there is a strong sense of structure within the team this year meaning players know where to be throughout the game as well as beginning to understand ball protection without being too tunnel visioned, which is great to see.

We had several highlights this week including a goal line territorial kick that saw us regather the ball further down field, ultimately resulting in a try for the Piranhas – great stuff Jackson.

I am excited by the strength and carry power of some of our new additions in the forward pack – Mana, Solomon and Noah all had powerful charging runs, well done!

We were also able to secure some good counter ruck opportunities from the likes of Walt, Max and Sebastian.

Paige and Jackson had a strong pivotal game and I am excited to work with these two as leaders of the team – well done.

Congratulations to player of the day – Mana – awarded for strong carries, hard hits, turnovers won and also playing for the opposition.

This week sees us pinned against the West Orcas.  This is a team that we had real trouble with last year and training this week will be focused on how we defeat the Orcas.  More to come here.  Please make sure you are at training on time and ready to start right on 4:30.  Please let me know if you can’t make it.

Very excited for the season ahead.

 

-Coach.
