|24th March||Shrewsbury||1 - 2
1 - 1
|Wrexham Under 9s played 2 games against Shrewsbury. In the first game
Wrexham lost 2 tries to 1. The improvement in tackling that Wrexham have been showing in
the last couple of weeks continued as did the skills around the rucks and mauls. The team
competed well in these areas and drove well in the mauls and cleared the opposition away
at the ruck.
Michael Barnes had his best game of the season putting in a series of brave tackles and drives. Shrewsbury had arrived at Wrexham short of 2 players and sportingly James Baldwin and Rhys Jenkins volunteered to play for the opposition to make up their numbers. Rhys Jenkins scoredboth the Shrewsbury tries with Ben Martin marking his return after a few weeks away with a try for Wrexham. The second game again was a close affair. Ben Jones, loaned to Shrewsbury for this game, not holding back in tackling his Wrexham friends. Both sides played with great commitment and the game ended 1 try each. Wrexham's scorer was Jacob Hughes. The Under 9s are away at Chester next week, meeting at 9.45 at Wrexham.
|3 - 6
6 - 3
|Despite losing the first game against Llandudno 6 tries to 3 there was
greater determination to make tackles and the team showed good driving work in the rucks
and mauls. Powerful, straight running and driving by Ricky Davies set up many of Wrexham's
attacks and allowed Rhys Jenkins the room to put in some elusive runs. Good support
running from the team helped finish off these moves. Llandudno moved the ball away from
breakdowns very efficiently and their better passing produced overlaps from which a number
of their tries were scored and they ran out deserved winners.
In their second
game against Rhyl Wrexham continued the good work shown against Llandudno with Ricky
Davies again leading the charge with his powerful straight runs. Ben Jones, in only his
third game showed his
|21st Jan||Denbigh||6 - 2||The under 9s travelled to Denbigh and played a mixed U9 and U10 Denbigh team. Wrexham put in an improved performance from last week but eventually lost 6 tries to 2. Wrexham's improved rucking and mauling provided ball for scrum half Sean Williams to put Ben Martin into space for both Wrexham's tries. Wrexham tackled and competed well throughout most of the game but the bigger Denbigh team proved too strong in the second half.|
|14th Jan||Mold||8 - 3||Wrexham Under 9s played an extended game of four ten minute quarters. Mold won the game eight tries to three largely due to some aggressive rucking and mauling. Both teams seemed a little rusty after the Xmas break with Mold scoring 1 try in each of the two opening quarters. Wrexham defended well in this period with fine tackles by Ben Martin keeping Mold out. The second half saw both teams improve their techniques with Mold especially impressive at the breakdown. Wrexham competed well with tries coming from Ricky Davies and two more for the season's top scorer Ben Martin. Try saving tackles from Rhys Jenkins and Ben Martin and improved team work kept Wrexham in touch, however Mold ran out eventual 8-3 winners. Wrexham's man of the match with 2 fine tries and a string of solid tackles was Ben Martin.|
|26th Nov||Winnington Park||2 - 4
1 - 5
|Wrexham lost both games, going down 4 tries to 2 in the first game and 5
to 1 in the second. Wrexham tries came from Ricky Davies, Ben Martin and Jacob Hughes.
The skills that the team had been practising over the previous weeks were employed effectively during both games with Wrexham being much more competitive at the breakdown area, setting up a number of driving mauls.
Following one of these the ball was ripped out and passed to Ben Martin who used his speed to score in the corner. Ricky Davies followed this with a powerful drive to score once again. The switch moves that had been learnt led to a fine try by Jacob Hughes in the second game completely wrong footing the defence. Winnington Park possessed some elusive runners who evaded a number of Wrexham tacklers to score the crucial tries.
|22nd Oct.||Nant Conwy||9 - 1
1 - 2
Sunday 22 October Wrexham U9s travelled to Nant Conwy. There was time to play a full game
of 10 minutes each way as well as finish off with a shorter game of 5 minutes a half.
Wrexham won the first game convincingly 9 tries to 1. In a big improvement on the previous
week's disappointments Wrexham managed to cross the gain line consistently, setting up a
number of scoring chances. Benjamin Martin claimed his second hatrick of the season,
finishing the game with a total of 4 tries, man of the match Ricky Davies picked up 3
tries and Rhys Jenkins added another 2. Liam Edwards showed his determination, putting in
a number of brave tackles.
In the shorter second game Nant Conwy came out strongly and rarely missed a tackle
eventually winning a very tight game 2 tries to 1, Sean Williams scoring at the end of the
game for Wrexham.
The U9s have been training at
|14th Oct.||Mold||0 - 10||Wrexham U9s took on Mold at Wrexham on Sunday 15 Oct. An extended game of four 10 minute quarters was played with Mold running out convincing winners 10 tries to nil. Mold ran in some quick tries in the first two quarters showing good team work and techniques at the breakdown areas.Some fine tackling by fullback Ben Martin prevented more Mold scores.Wrexham improved significantly in the last two periods showing more determination and commitment at rucks and mauls and set up some impressive drives just failing to score on a number of occasions. Team captain, Sean Williams lead by example. Rhys Jenkins and Ben Martin were aggressive in attack and defence with forwards Mateusz Olszewski, Jack Belton and George Douthwaite improving as the game went on.|
3 - 8
Wrexham were away at Llandudno where they played two games losing them both 9 - 1 and 8 - 3. Llandudno were much the stronger team with Wrexham under preasure for the majority of the game.That said the Wrexham performance in the second game was a much improved effort.The lack of Wrexham Tries was down to some fine and aggressive defence by Llandudno. Scorers: Ben Martin, Rhys Jenkins, Jacob Hughes and Jack Belton. One Try a-peice.
|24th Sept.||Ruthin||8 - 7||
Wrexham came out as winners at 8 tries to 7. As the score suggest this was an entertaining game with both teams playing some impressive and committed Rugby. Worthy of comment was the the passing of the ball from the breakdown and determined running of the backs. This was an encouraging display of their first full contact game since moving from the game of Tag. Scorers: Ricky Davies - 2, Rhys Jenkins - 2 and Ben Martin - 4.
