It’s Geoff says!

| 13/10/2019

Whilst Bridgwater and Albion director of rugby Geoff Sluman was disappointed at Saturday’s home defeat at the hands of Hornets, it wasn’t all bad.

Reflecting on the match Geoff said: “It feels like this result may have been coming for a couple of weeks. We never really got out of first gear let alone second or third gears. Hard work on the training pitch is the cure that usually works the best so that is exactly what we will be doing this week.”

Despite the result there were some very positive aspects that came out of Saturday’s match.

“It was not all bad, however, and the try we scored early in the second half may be one of the contenders for try of the season with the interplay and unloads that were completed.

“The blend of experience and new talent continues to develop. Ethan Treble-Westlake made his 100th first team appearance on Saturday whilst Dylan Evans debuted and scored a brilliant solo try from deep in our own half. Overall, Dylan produced a very competent performance and was awarded the E18ghteen Gin man of the match for his try scoring debut.

Looking ahead Geoff said: “Next week we travel to Keynsham, who are usually quite a tricky opponent, so there is no time to waste and those training sessions this week will be vitally important.”
