RC Unterföhring : München RFC II
15 : 7

On an overcast early autumn morning MRFC 2 took the long journey to Unterfoehring. After a slow warm up and some inspiring spit from captain Christophe, we had some inspiring words when Christophe remembered to take out his gumshield. From kick off Munich spent a good 15 minutes camped in the oponents 22 which only ended after a good scoring opportunity for Munich was knocked on and Unterfoehring cleared their lines from the resulting scrum. Mid way through the first half Munich went 3 nil down to a penalty then Ramon took munich back in the game with a pick and go try for 7 points. After some more scrappy play Unterfoehring asserted some control on the game and just before the break they scored to bring the game to 8.7 at half time. At half time coaching staff for Munich Jerome and Kevin made some changes to the team and after the restart the game continues with broken, open play interspersed with some break by both teams and sone big hits both on and off the ball. Munich started to make some good yardage but ultimately handling errors and poor decision making led to the end of promising runs. During the whole game Munich had been warned on hands on the ball in the ruck and eventually the ref gave a Yellow card to Owain Williams for the combined sins of the team after he went off his feet at the ruck. Soon after Unterfoehring scored one more try which they converted which took the game from Munich. Shortly before the end of the game, Munich received a penalty kick in front of the posts. The choice was given and Munich decided to forego the kick and losing bonus point to try and get one more try from a tap penalty as the team deserved on more try after a game full of heart, hits and piss poor kicking.
Honourable mentions:
Christophe for leadership and tackles.
Nick for tackles and 'hits'
Antoine for solid play in the back row and then the front row.
Lawrence for scrummaging and good line outs both on their and our ball.
