U17s - you played in the game - now watch the video!

As some of you may have seen, Mike Alcock - Nikki & Katie's dad - videoed virtually the entire game last weekend. An edited and streamed version his recording is now available by clicking here and the second half is here - or you can click on the image below (it has to be edited down to 10 minutes for each half as that is the maximum YouTube will accept).

Needless to say the quality is not exactly that of the original DVD, added to which it was a bit dark in the first half (the clicking noise is rain falling on the microphone), but even so its very watchable.

Highlights of first half....

  • The first Letchworth try (from Hayley) - where does she come from to pick the ball up?
  • The first Bucks/MK try - for which the phrase "a comedy of errors" is barely adequate. Count the number of opportunities we squandered to clear our lines
  • The almost complete lack of any back moves - and the effectiveness of the few that there were. Consider why this might have been...

Highlights of second half:

  • Hayley doing the splits... ouch!
  • Hayley's second try minutes later. Say no more.
  • Sophie's try - well you don't see it, but the celebrations are good
  • The sun is out and there is much more passing etc.
  • Competing in the line outs (see how high Nichola gets!) pays off at the end.

What do you all think, now having watched yourselves play?
