We had a good trip to Denmark
The 15's game played with EKF against the Danes was a bit scrappy and we lost 33/21 but the set piece went well and it was the first time we had played together. We were also playing against the Danish National back line so not too bad!
Sevens tournament was more of a development for us. First game too loose (lost), second game much better defence and tackling (lost), third game a great performance! You should all be proud of the way you played for each other, put your bodies on the line and showed an excellent intensity in defence and attack. This was one of the best performances I have seen from the team showing true grit and determination - we drew but could've won! Interesting to note the Danes were so battered by us they couldn’t play any further games!
Both the EKF coaches and I were impressed you were all up for a fourth 'friendly' match - some dreadful conversion attempts and a few tries scored by each side but all in the spirit of the game!
As you are all battered and bruised we will have a well earned break from training this week, so no training on Monday or Thursday but lets pick up again on Saturday for a debrief and a light session.
Well done Exiles!
