With a growing rivalry between the two clubs we knew this was going to be our toughest game this year. The Dragons came with plenty of force ( where all these expats turn up from I don’t know but just remember lads you do have a choice! ).
Forum fielded a near full side, just a couple of players still away with injuries. As the whistle blew to start the game Forum immediately went on the attack pushing MD back into their own 22. For all the hard work we just could not find the finishing touch.
The Dragons responded well with swift passing through the backs and the pressure was now on a defiantly defending Forum. Tackle after tackle Forum held the well drilled players from MD. Just as it looked Forum could weather this storm MD showed there better class with another backs move to score a good try in the corner.
Evjeni came on for Forum and gave another dimension to the team with his skill and perfect kicking boot. Vanya in the centre closed down his opposite no 12 as best he could but every time the ball was fed to the backs the Dragons made good ground. Half time finished a nail biting 0-5.
The second half was more of the same with the Dragons getting stronger and Forum struggling to keep the pace. Only by bad luck did Forum not see all the hard work result in a try and the game was still in a balance. Two well scored tries by MD took the game seemingly now out of reach with little time left. Big tackles and the now never give in attitude from our forwards, notably Artur who never missed a tackle all game, seemed to infuriate the MD players. A swift move into the MD’s 22 showed the other teams lack of discipline as an illegal punch gave the ref no choice but for a yellow card which turned red after disputing with the referee. A penalty to Forum looked like giving us our first try but yet again a grievous lack of discipline from a winning Dragons team lighted the proverbial stick of dynamite! Both teams scrambled into a 30 man punch up which was hard to quell.
The final whistle blew with the score at 0-24 to the Dragons. Forum fought hard and well but were beaten by a better side.
Man of the Match goes to Artur for his endless tackling.
Donkey of the match goes to the match ball, which by the end of the game was totally deflated (please let’s get a Gilbert)23.09.2008 в 09:41 #85726
Also, one of the interesting points of the show was wedding parade, which took attention not only spectators, but players too 😀 Just married came to edge of the field 😀23.09.2008 в 14:37 #85727
