Today my son's U10s Oxford team played Kaiapoi Gold U10s. I would like to acknowledge the excellent Kaiapoi referee who, in 7 years of JAB rugby is one of the best I've seen. He was unbiased, fair and consistent and calmly explained his decisions to both teams in an effort to educate and improve, whilst keeping the game fun yet competitive. He is a credit to your club and I wish all our refs were to his standard. Well done ...

The Golds unbeaten 2018 run came to a screaming halt on Saturday afternoon vs the other unbeaten side, Woodend, on a sunny afternoon at Kaiapoi park.

After the game vs Saracens a month ago the division 2 side went and played Amberley and Ohoka away and produced two satisfying bonus point wins and then on the Kaiapoi club day the team faced another nemesis from last season Glenmark. The golds couldn’t beat Glenmark last season and really wanted to prove a point on club day and ended up beating them 43 to 12. The performance was far from perfect but they were still unbeaten in 5 games and had maximum points in the bag.

Saturday’s game was played in excellent sunny conditions on a beautiful Kaiapoi oval which held up very well after plenty of rain in the week.
In the previous 3 games the coaches had tampered with the side, trying out new combinations but they knew this game vs Woodend, which was a top of the table clash, they would need to put out the strongest possible.
This wasn’t entirely possible with a few injuries in the squad with Jayden Carson, Kyle Smith and Dene Steere being ruled out with injuries but this squad depth is strong and more than capable players filled those spots. Two notable inclusions was good mates Joe Baker (starting his first game in many years due to semi retirement) and Grant Bryce (Div 1 member) starting in the centres together. This was by no means a weak Golds side.

Unfortunately on paper was the only chance the team had to compete in the game as Woodend started the game with great strength in the set piece and continued to dominate throughout the game. The strong Woodend forward pack laid the platform for them to score the first converted try after just 4 minutes but the Kaiapoi side responded after 14 mins to a good barnstorming try to Ezra Tiweka who is having a brilliant start to the season.
It didn’t take the Woodend side long and they were in again after 17 mins and again at 22 mins. Kaiapoi responded and wouldn’t lie down and Shak Bassi scored after 25 mins but were letting Woodend have the run of things. The game at half time was still for the taking but Kaiapoi would have to improve and the score was 24 to 14.
The coaches stressed at the half how important the next half was and urged the side to defend with all they had as the Kaiapoi side had uncharacteristically dropped of way too many tackles and the forward pack were 2nd best on the park and asked them to step up a gear.

The 2nd half started much like the game had started and Kaiapoi just didn’t fire and they let Woodend take the game. The Woodend forward pack laying the platform for their halfback to run circles around the tiring Kaiapoi players scored three more tries to put the game to bed. The Kaiapoi bench was emptied which lifted the golds somewhat and they scored two late tries to Ethan Ashcroft and both were converted finishing the game 53 to 28.

The Golds were just not good enough on the day and were disappointing all across the park but defence was the biggest issue it seemed and that will hopefully be worked on this week at training.
They have the chance to get their season back on track this Saturday vs Hurunui at home at 1300. They will bring what you would normally expect from a side from Hurunui and will give the golds a good workout in the forwards which gives them a great chance to redeem themselves after what was a pretty disappointing performance vs Woodend.
It will be interesting to see if the same players get the chance to redeem themselves or the coaches will make changes.

They would love to see you down on Saturday to cheer them on.
