P6 V Stew Mel fest
P6 Shine on Leith
After a good bus journey Ellon P6 warmed up and were ready to play.
First up were our hosts Stew Mel Black.
An athletic looking team who were very well drilled in all areas.
From the kick off Ellon ran the ball up the middle and after being brought to ground,we recycled and shipped to our wing!!!!
First score Ellon.Stew Mel returned the score and with Ellon defending well in the tackle and ruck the game stood at 3-2 to Ellon.
With the last play Stew Mel broke looking to draw the game but Ellon's dash to cover tackle prevailed with 2 players putting Stew Mel in to touch.
Ellon 3 - 2 Stew Mel
Ellon P6 sat out the next games only to return playing Stew Mel Gold.
This Stew Mel team were bigger in stature and Ellon were constantly on the back foot.
Tackle upon tackle Stew Mels support play was superb and after a length of time Ellon could not hold out. 1-0 Stew Mel.
Ellon attacked well but could not thwart the Stew Mel flow who were also excellent over the ball with the "Jackal".
The Ellon squad dug in but another score from the Lions sealed the game.
Ellon 0-2 Stew Mel Gold
Ellon P6 got together and could see what was needed to proceed against Currie and Portabello.
With great defence,pressure and attacking play,Ellon got back to the game they enjoy.With good offloading and continuity ,Currie could not keep up with Ellon's pace. A special mention to Ellon P6's "Dancing Bull", JP Friel who had a fantastic game weaving in and out of the Currie defence to score a magnificent try,with the sideline in great applause!!
Portabello again were a great test to P6 with good runners ,but Ellon recycled well with our scrumhalf producing good ball going out wide,using the full pitch.
Ellon 6-2 Portabello
A good day out by Ellon P6 for which we thank our hosts Stew Mel Lions.
The P6 coaches have areas to work on with the squad but a fine performance from all who attended,playing super rugby with kind feedback from the other coaches competing commending your play.
Keep it up P6 and well done a fine display of skills and rugby brains.
