Herren Regionalliga Bayern

München, 15. Oktober 2016, Bericht: Tom Grealish


München RFC II : Würzburger RK
39 : 0

Top of the table Würzburg came to Großhadern looking to extend their lead but were soundly beaten by an impressive Munich 2nd XV performance.In the opening minutes of the game both teams kept the ball in hand and both backlines had opportunities to run at each other. Würzburg played a very direct, hard running game but the Munich defence was able to neutralise their attacks around the contact area with committed tackling and with backline pushing up and pressurising their opponents. Tooks, Simon and Patrick all putting in big hits early to set the tone.
The scoring was opened on 11 minutes by a penalty from Will, which signalled the start of a period of dominance for Munich. The men in blue spent the rest of the half in Würzburg territory with Giacomo at fly half releasing the Munich back line with with the centre partnership of  Raul and Ronan linking well together. The back 3 of Jack, Korbian & Lion all making big yardage running the ball at Würzburg. The pack played well with good tight play and offloading from contact particularly from Owain, Sergio and Mathieu which helped bring Munich closer to the Würzburg line . Number 8 Sam, who spend the game doing a very good impression of Kieran Read, broke off the back of a scrum and beat a few defenders before deftly off-loading to Will to score on 17 minutes.From the kick off Munich returned to the Würzburg half and pinned them back into their 22. Raul reading the play well pushed up to intercept and score under the sticks which was converted by Will. Munich kept up the pressure and on the stroke of half time captain Quickie crashed over to give Munich a 22 - 0 lead at half time. The game of rugby has advanced and changed over the years but there are some things that will never change. Give your biggest player a 7m run up at a distance of 5m from the try line, it will alway be a score!
After the half time break Raul scores his 2nd try of the game to secure the bonus point for MRFC with 31mins still left to play. The bench players then joined the fray looking to make an impact with Consti getting stuck into the tackles and Adrian knocking back his opposite number with a great hit. Munich had some great interplay with off-loads and great support lines ran and this paid off as Ronan went over for Munich's 5th try just before the hour. The result was long settled but both teams kept running the ball and some great open rugby was played with forwards and backs linking well and keeping the ball moving through the hands with Jerome, Thilo and Stefan all making good runs. Munich continued to push forward and a very good kick in behind the defence from an unnamed replacement 2nd row put the team in good position. Shortly after the kick (at least 20 minutes later) Peter broke the defensive line to score his debut try from MRFC which was converted by Lion to put the final score at 39 - 0. Würzburg should be commended for fighting right up until the final whistle and played running rugby from start to finish.
For MRFC this was a big result which puts them joint top of the table but with a significant points difference advantage due to a great defensive effort. This and last weekend's result gives the team momentum for the derby with Stusta in two weeks time.
