Match Reports Albury Steamers versus Tumut 25th May 2019

Tumut bought 3 strong sides down to Murrayfield on a balmy Autumn day at Murrayfield.

Steamers Womens 10’s

Steamers received from the kick off and worked the ball up to half way. Steamers defence and attack were pretty solid and both sides traded blows for the first 5 minutes. Susan Curby was making dents in the line with her straight running. Ellie Brown was damaging in defence. Some quick thinking by Susan led to a tap and half break, before she offloaded to debutant Chelsea , who showed good pace to get outside Tumuts cover defence and go over in the corner. It was 5-nil to the Steamers after 8 mins. From the kick off we got a penalty and were on attack, when Tumut intercepted and went the length of the field to score.. 5-all after 10 mins

From the kick off Susan Curby ran the ball back strongly. Things got a bit scrappy with a lot of infringments in the ruck. Ref Benson had a quiet word to the teams and we got back into it. Tumut were looking dangerous in attack and a few movements could have led to tries but Steamers held on. The weight of possession finally told and Tumut went in for 3 more tries and went to half time with a 22-5 lead.

We duffed our kick off when it failed to go 10 m and Tumut made a break straight away, scrambling defence by Emma Clements saved a certain try. There was a bit of controversy with a fracas in the ruck and the ref decided both girls could cool off in the bin, so Ellie Brown took a break. Steamers took advantage and Olympia made a good break scoring a long range try to get the scores back to 22-10. Susan Curby was having a ding dong battle with her opposite half. The girls seem to run out of a bit of Steam in the back half of the game and Tumut kicked into gear and ran in another 4 tries to finish the scores at 46-10 .

The ladies are continuing to improve and are getting good numbers to training. Tumut sit second on the ladder and have only been beaten by the red hot Reddies squad.

Our points went to Taylor Fieldes, Susan and Olympia. Players player was Chelsea.



Steamers 2nd XV

Steamers received the kick off and looked pretty good in attack, putting 6-8 phases together to pressure Tumuts d. There was plenty of talk amongst the Steamers. After a bit of sustained pressure, Burnsy finally put Panda into a gap and he scored out wide to get steamers in front 5-0 after 5 minutes. The next next 10-15 minutes were a good standard of Rugby as both teams attacked. Tumut’s scrum was getting a bit of domination, but Steamers looseys were causing havoc. Tyno(Subtitles) made a couple of his trademark steals to upset the bulls in the ruck. Laurence Lockington was immense with some good running and energy around the tight stuff. Captain Coombs went over next to the posts and Steamers were out to a 10 nil lead after 11 minutes.

Tumut had a couple of leaguies playing for them and they were determined to run the ball from all parts of the field. We went for the next 20 minutes without any side scoring, Steamers went to half time at 10-0 up.

After the break, the contest was pretty willing with both sides going hammer and tong at each other. Steamers got down into Tumuts red zone and Tumut went the length of the field to score and the scores were 10-7 after about 40 mins. Again Steamers got back into Tumuts red zone and Tumut continued to try and run out of their own half. We had several opportunities here to keep sustained pressure on, but there was bit of “one-out” stuff and Tumuts defence was pretty strong. The one time Tumut did try to exit Panda returned with a kick and good chase, but we failed to capitalise. Tumut got up to Steamers half and went in for another try to go up 12-10 in the 53rd minute.

Steamers again got down into Tumuts red zone, but could not score. Tumuts defence was pretty good, and Steamers couldn’t crack their line. These are the periods of games when training and patterns will win us matches and unfortunately we fell short. Message to players- get to training.

In the end Tumut ran out deserved winners 12-10.

Our points went to Laurence, Joel Coel and Panda, Laurence was players player.

Steamers 1st XV

We received the kick off and we duffed it with the ball going into touch. We regained possession from the Bulls lineout and Krautzy made a half break to get us up field. We got a penalty in front after 3 mons and Blake put it over to get us to 3-nil .

Steamers coughed up possession after the kick off and Tumut were stacking the short side to try and exploit Steamers defensive line, but we held on. Despite us securing possession a couple of times, Tumut managed to put pressure on and we scrapped our way out of the half to get into Tumuts end..

Nachos was having a pretty good scrap with his opposite number and made a good steal from the back of a Bull’s scrum. Steamers got a lineout on Tumut’s 30 metre line and some nice passing and running lines saw Blake go over next to the posts. We went to 10-nil up after 10 mins. Tumut managed again to get possession from the kick off. They ran a move from the lineout that was deemed to have an obstruction and Steamers got a relieving penalty. Krautzy made a good bust running out in the backline off the lineout and offloaded to Sam Allen who scored to get us to a 17-nil lead after 18 minutes. DCD (Dave Cooper Dunn aka Terminator) was back on the field for Steamers after Summer holidays in England and his strong running and defence stiffened up the middle.

Tumut’s scrum was putting us under fair bit of pressure and we lost a couple of tightheads and we gave away a couple of penalties. Steamers defence was up to the challenge and despite this possession ,Steamers mounted a couple more attacking raids despite the scrum problems. Some steals by Krautzy and Jack Elder turned Tumut around. Benny Reid did a good job stopping the gun Bulls fullback Vaughn Scott a couple of times. The weight of possession and then a poor exit from Steamers resulted in Tumut going over in the corner to go to half time at 17-5 down.

The second half started like the first with Steamers getting a penalty and going to a 20-5 lead in the 44th minute. House Kora came on after 10 minutes to bolster the scrum . Tumut hit back and scored again to get back to 20-10. There was a fair bit of niggle going on and Tumut’s second rower was yellow carded after some foul play in the 48th minute.

Steamers were able to take the upper hand here and Ryan O’Sullivan who was having a blinder secured the ball from the kick off and after a good build up Blakee went in again to get us out to 27-10. Coach Mussara gave everyone on the bench a run in the last 20 mins and with the scrum stable, the game opened up a bit. The patterns and attack held together and Tumut were running out of gas. Joel Coel came on for Krautzy and made a couple of good steals and runs. Steamers forwards showed good discipline and rucked the ball(red ball) into Tumuts 22, before Rax went over in the 60th minute.

In some great running rugby, Willmore set up Sam Seton for a great long range try that had the crowd on its feet. Sam was able to beat 2 or 3 tackles and score out wide. Steamers ran out 37-10 winners. This was vital game for us to win , as Tumut sit above us on the ladder. We face a couple of tough road trips, with Wagga City next week, then Aggies after the general by on the Queens birthday week end.

For player in both grades- lets get to training – the next few weeks will determine our destiny.

The points went to Ryan, Charlie Mc,Blake and Players player was DCD

The Under 12 Steamers had a good roll up at Hay today. They played back to back games against GRIFFITH. In the first game they led late into the second half until Josh had a bad knock.

Lucas confidence is growing after he made several big runs and held the ball well in contact.

Hugo played even though he is still recovering from a severe MTB injury.

Hugh Masters played well in unfamiliar positions. Gaining valuable experience in the engine room.

Rosie was outstanding in the defence of her wing and well organised at halfback.

Ronan played well above his weight and size pushing his body to its limits in the pursuit of securing the ball.

Rory again put on the big hits against his much bigger opponents.

Digby attacked aggressively and showed good support to others.

Paddy and Jock were keen to pick and drive. They both left the field exhausted after giving 100%.

Nath made a number of strong runs often carrying two or three defenders with him.

Baxter gave fullback his best often helping out in the defensive line.

Josh made several long runs and scored a try. He was missed when off injured.

Bill never gave up. Working hard at the breakdown. His kicking advice fell deaf on his own ears.

Tim straight running created problems for the defence.

James made the trip even with hand in a cast to support the team by scoring, running water and generally being his cheerful self.

Up against Griffith’s top team in the second game, injuries mounted and we were well beaten. The boys rallied in the second half and fought back to show great resilience.
Griffith showed good sportsmanship and lent players and backed off. No major injuries.

Again a big thanks to all our parents for getting our team to Hay. Hay Cutters again put on a well run and social weekend.
