RG Heidelberg II : München RFC
10 : 10

MRFC were on the road once again, and this time we traveled to RGH. Normally a very hard and physical game and this game was no different. The MRFC scrum and lineout from the start was very strong and we planned to use this to our advantage and give the backs some go forward ball. But RGH got off on the better foot, when they picked up a dropped ball and scored under the posts. From the kickoff Munich new what they had to do and from another lineout turnover in their half,  the ball was moved through the hand out to Fionn who put in perfect weighted kick for Guilherme to gather up and touch down. Thomas added the extras. With the scrum going uncontested,  we struggled to get some go forward ball so we had to go back to the pack in open play who responded well.
Straight after the 2nd half Munich were reduced to 14 when Alan was sent to bin for deliberately slowing the ball down ( for some it was preventing a certain try). In any case RGH got 3 points and the guys defended as their life's depended on it and that was the last score for RGH. Munich knew what was needed and after some good attack but due to a great defence from RGH Munich should have scored, but they had to settle for the boot of Thomas who got us back level with a kick from the corner. At the end of the game Munich were in the 22 of the opponent but failed to covert this pressure into points.
At the end it was a draw, but are we happy no, the guys are not satisfied but they can see the advances we as team in transition are making and from this game and the previous games this year  we shall build on it and take it into the next games and use it.
A weeks break before Easter will be welcomed by all and then its back to business for the last 4 games of the season.
