Grimsby RRFC u12s 0
Matlock RFC u12s 21
The pitch initially impeded Matlock’s style of rugby but the lads rallied and responded well with old-fashioned hard work in the forwards and some good footwork in cramped conditions by the backs.
Matlock scored through Connor Proffitt and a brace from Tom Osborn.
Grimsby pressured but never really threatened the disciplined Matlock defence.
Lewis Burford completed a 100 per cent conversion record to leave the result at 21-0 to the visitors.
The backs played as well as they could on the small pitch, the most pleasing being the way they coped with various positional changes, supporting runs and good hands.
