Kerry Girls U13 Blitz Report - by Danny Harrington.
Sunday morning the 4th of February, frost covering the landscape players, parents and coaches left their homes across Kerry. Killorglin, Tralee, Killarney and Listowel to hit the long road to Tipperary in search of Fethard. The day turned out fantastic, the clouds rolled away to reveal a shining sun as our team gathered on new ground to mark the beginning of a U-13 girls Kerry Rugby team.
Teams sporting all colours from Munster arrived and hit the changing areas with a mutual buzz of excitement, boot studs popping and clapping across the concrete we took an area and began our warm-ups, Coach Hollie O'Byrne stretching our team and getting them match ready. Coach Danny Harrington ran a drill in two groups with a sprint to tackling and rucking for the ball.
Ready for action the team entered the pitch, with only three training sessions completed Coaches picked their teams place, our forwards were picked. The centre forward position was given to Robyn
Flanked by Sasha and Fea, behind them in the forwards were Lyndsy, Aideen, and Emily. Flanked with our wings Caoilinn and Niamh, our rear by Ellen, Chloe and Ruth.Emma was injured and not able to play but the support and help she gave to the team on the day was amazing.
Sasha our Captain moved out to meet the referee and the other team while we gave last words of wisdom and support to the team.
Our first game against Ballingcollig and Clonakilty began with a kick out from Sasha, the ball had left her in a split second our girls had pushed forward already on them, a rushed pass from the opposition gave us the ball without hesitation Robyn had the ball and began taking ground, a Ruck over with Support from Fea and Emily, Lindsy made a break from the pack, our line held following the girls into their half pushing passing, pushing passing.
A knock on by us played through advantage led the players off the field near their 22 line, from the Line out, opposition had the ball and pushed back, taking ground back up to 10, then our 15 our backs holding and stopping any attack that slipped past the forwards, Ruth looking at space and calling for the line to be filled.
A prolonged attack pushing us deeper and deeper looked like the opposition had a Try, the ball changed and suddenly Fea charged down field flanked by Lindsy and Robyn, pick and goes straight back down to their 22 with all the players in support. A sudden dash pushing players out of the way gave Fea a Try for Kerry, A restart kick by Sasha and back in play, for the rest of the game was a frenzy of rucks and Mauls with constant runs and breakaways. A stoppage after ten minutes with a non-contested scrum gave the opposition the ball and pushed us back.
Just before final whistle the opposition gained a Try. The game ended with a try to each team. Covered in mud an ecstatic new Kerry team had completed their first game.
Game two against Skibereen had our girls looking stronger, they worked harder and faster our forwards constantly pushing, followed with great support clearing the rucks from the backs and securing the ball. Sasha nearly had the ball to the ground on the try line before the ball got knocked away, more ground taken, Giant push forward led us to a 2-0 victory.
Game three against Carrick pushed us harder, but a more confident and stronger Kerry team were playing now, with amazing work from all the team Niamh and Aideen in constant tackles, Robyn, Lindsy, Fea and Sasha constantly breaking away, gaining ground and pushing down field, no team member was out of the game, each player put in their worth. Chloe stopping the ball carrier at every tackle, Ruth and Ellen not giving any ground to the opposition and constantly filling the line. Impressive work from Emily and Caoilionn all accumulated with Kerry winning its final game with 5 Try’s to two against Carrick.
Well done to all Players Coach’s and parents the support of has given this new Kerry team a promising start as we leave our first blitz with a score sheet of sixteen points.
