München, 23. April 2016, Bericht: Alan Moughty


München RFC II : RC Unterföhring
21 : 21

The first of the double bills kicked of with Unterfoering taking on MRFC ll. The weather was perfect and in front of a large home crowd Mrfc ll kicked off. During the opening minutes MRFC kept the ball well and moved through the phases. The line out was working well but with some good defense Unterfoering kept Munich out. Unterfoering put the ball threw the hands and carried well. There lose-head been their main ball carrier well and made good ground.  The first penalty for Unterfoering was given for not rolling away and they opted for the line-out. A strong maul was formed but Munich defended strongly as they have done all season and turned the ball over and relived the pressure.
Discipline on Unterfoering side started to fade with repeated warnings for high tackles and side entry in the rucks costing them the first points of the game with a penalty kick. 3-0.  A few minutes later another lack of discipline offered the next penalty shot out on the far right which was missed - but only to be offered a second attempt minutes later from the same position which was put threw the uprights. 6-0. Eventually the man in charge had had enough and the first of the yellow cards was given just before half time. Munich did not manage to capitalize on the man advantage and it was Unterfoering who went into the break with a penalty kick opportunity which went just right of the posts.  During the break the message was clear "keep working hard as a team like in the first half, but you need to raise the tempo of the game"
The second half started with Munich receiving the ball and they moved wide and made good ground only for Unterfoering discipline once again to cost them - dearly this time round. Munich kicked for touch and through a well trained moved from the line out Borja crossed over in the corner for the opening try. A well converted kick was added. 12-0.  Again Unterfoering were reduced to 14 men and again Munich went to their line out.  Poor execution let Unterfoering clear their lines but the pressure was short lived. Munich ran the ball back and with some nice soft hands and powerful running Quentin crossed over for the second try. It stayed 18-0 as the conversion was missed. Unterfoering continued to believe in themselves and started the come back and got the first of their 3 tries via a blocked down kick. 18-7. Munich rang the changes, as 4 of the starting 15 had earned an opportunity to play in front of the coaching staff for the first team. 14 minutes remaining, and the errors on Munich side crept in. The kick off not going 10m awarding Unterfoering a scrum in the middle of the park.  They attacked right and made ground but a great turn over was executed only for it to be handed directly back to them which allowed them to power up the field and make camp on Munich line till they powered over for the second try. 18-14.  With their tales up Unterfoering went for the kill and got their third try plus the extras -18-21.  With only minutes  to play, Munich regathered themselves and from he kick off applied the pressure, with Unterfoering conceding the penalty under the pressure.  With Alan off the pitch "having just fecked off" as one member was heard quoting - hSam Croos then stood up and removed one boot and stuck the ball on the ground and kicked the ball through the posts. 21-21.
