U16s draw against combined Ophir/Larne team
Ring rust apparent as U16s draw against Larne.
Ards U16s welcomed a combined Larne/Ophir team to Hamilton Park last Saturday in an Ulster Carpets Ulster Youth league match. Unfortunately the allocated referee became ill at last minute and a Larne official duly stepped in to referee the match.
The match began with contested scrums for the first 15 minutes but due to Larne/Ophir having no front row cover, the referee called for uncontested scrums for remainder of the game.
The match was payed on good spirits and ended as a 7-7 draw.
It was evident that the U16s were ring rusty due to a lack of matchtime, hopefully this we'll be addressed at training during the week and before next Saturday's important league match against Instonians at Hamilton Park
