Sunday 5th October 2014 West Norfolk U14's v's Norwich U14's.

On glorious Sunday morning west travelled to Norwich for their first 15's match of the season.

Norwich kicked off and immediately attacked the West defence and sleepy poor defence gave the initiative to break the line to score, which was duly converted.

West continued in this vain without committing to the tackles allowing Norwich to further pressure the defence. This resulted in a further try to the home side which was converted.

This now woke up the whole team and they started to play like a team. After continued phases of play Tom Hitchcock broke the line and scored.

West's forwards continued to dominate especially in the scrums with constant wins against the head.

A defensive lapse in the West backs gave Norwich a further try.

Again the team pulled together and game back on the front foot to take the game to the opponents with George Lemon bursting through slick half back play.

Trundley kicked the conversion.

Half time score 19 - 12

West's kicked off the second half and were once again sleeping allowing Norwich to score from their centre which was converted.

This again woke up the team with the players looking to exert pressure on Norwich and team play improving, Hitchcock took the restart catch powered forward fed Lemon to score, conversion was completed.

The pressure continued and after several phases of play the ball came to Connor Clarke who darted through numerous opponents to touch down under the posts, which was duly converted.

West's were now frustrating their opposition with strong scrummaging and rucking winning positive ball. The ball broke from the back of ruck passed wide by Spurrier and Trundley enabling Lemon to burst the line again to score.

Now with the lead the team switched off again allowing Norwich to score under the post and convert.

With time running out West’s had to pick themselves up again and came back pressurising the Norwich defence again with strong running, with ground being made which gave Lemon the platform to break through to score. The try was converted.

As the match drew to a close West's continued to resist the pressure.
