Whites v Sandgate RFU/UFC.FC
The Whites winning run came to an abrupt end to a Sandgate team that would have been more at home at Twickenham and the loss of a few key players didn't help either, but we have enough depth to still put a decent side out.
Right from the off it was obvious to see what tactics they had been told to use and it wasn't pretty with two footed tackles blatant pushing in the backs to throwing punches and elbow into our players heads, foul after foul they gave away even when Ali broke clear he was chopped down from behind and it went unpunished quite easily a red card, all the scoring was in the first half with 2 of there goals being deflected in and the one we scored was a 30 harder from George Burnham.
Second half was a carbon copy we had 80% possession but as play built up we was subjected to cynical tackles it was only a matter of time before we had a serious injury and I was contemplating of ending the game early but on 60 minutes the game was stopped when George Heath was elbowed in the side of the head and suffered what I thought was concussion at the time so we had to tend to him and the game was held up by 8 minutes,it was clear he was unable to carry on which there manager and players just laughed which was disgusting behaviour even there pitch marshal goaded our players and looked like he was enjoying it, problem I had is I wouldn't mind losing to a football playing team but to lose to these tactics is mortifying so glad CB coaches don't resort to these tactics and behave the correct way and this was remarked on by the ref at the end saying both players and coaches from CB were a credit to the club.
Final whistle eventually went and the bad behaviour didn't stop there when there number 9 went up to our lines woman Molly and shouted at her and told her he wanted to knock her out unbelievable attitude,
Training this week please bring boxing gloves and mouth guards lol.
I forgot to add we actually played some fantastic football today and Eamon was superb in goal and out on pitch well done me old China and a great big thanks to our super sub Jeeve terrific saves in the second half although your kicks need improving lol.
