Teams find their beach legs.
The only thing better than the weather for last week’s play was the scintillating touch being played by all the teams. Skills, well worked tries and flair was the flavor of the day with each team weighing in with some great touch. It’s seems that players have found their beach legs and are no longer getting stuck in the sand both on attack and defense.
This week saw the introduction of the WP Touch Ladies to the series. Their first 2 games of the summer edition of the Beach Rugby Series were tightly contested. They drew 1-all in their first fixture and went down narrowly in their second. Stalwart Terri Kalis made an impression early on and created the momentum for the team, earning herself a spot in the Team of the Week.
It was a tough round of fixtures for all the teams, and there were only a few tries it for each game played. The beach is unforgiving, it takes one mistake to determine the outcome of the game and players know that they always have to be on their toes.
The CB Legends have climbed to the top of the standings, and only pip the newbies – The Dynamiters – by try difference. AGW have played less games, are one point away for the top and will be looking to win all their encounters for the rest of the series. At the bottom end of the table ON Fire are still looking of the mark and their performances continue to improve week in and week out. The Foot Tsekkers and The Avengers will be making a dash for the top of the series this coming Thursday.
See you on the Sand!
