  • We won ALL our games with tries from most Merchant Boys players.
  • Good tackling was carried out particularly by Dylan who stopped one of Newcastle’s fastest players with a great tackle stopping the try.
  • Also, good passing was made by all players, particularly James who unselfishly passed the ball to a team mate allowing him to score the try.
  • The game was carried out in good spirit apart from the Birkenhead coach who shouted at the referee!
  • Everyone shook hands at the end of each match with cheers for each team.
  • The day was enjoyed by everyone who took part, especially Merchant’s because we won every match that we played!Match Report provided by Fraser Kingsley
