Bad Reichenhall, 26. Mai 2018, Bericht: Cornelius Henle


RFC Bad Reichenhall : München RFC II
41 : 21

The lads met at 10:30 ready to play Bad Reichenhall. As there was some confusion where the actual meeting point was, it wasn’t until 11:15 that we left Munich and started our journey heading South East. Due to the traffic jam on the Autobahn it took us a while to get there, however at around 13:30  we all arrived safely. It was sunny and hot and once everyone got to see the beautiful pitch surrounded by the mountains, the Lions were hungry for a good game of Rugby. Knowing how important a win would be for the Mrfc 2nds everyone got changed quickly followed by a focused 30 minute warm up.
In the first 10 minutes Munich held up well and the two teams appeared to be even. After the 15th minute however Munich was continouisly on the back foot as easy penalties were given away. Two missed tackles in a row and a good run by Bad Reichenhall led to their first try followed by a successful conversion. Even though the scrum was mostly dominated by the Lions, we also kept loosing possesion because of knock ons and poor support in the rucks. About 10 minutes after the first try Bad Reichenhall manages to score again with another conversion. Munich starts to get more and more confident after a few line breaks with the backs and an outstanding performance by the number 8 Rama. Just when it seemed like Munich was getting into the game Bad Reichenhall scores on the wing again. Just after the referee calls half time.
Coach Bilignio gave an motivation speech emphasisng that we needed to keep the ball and stop giving away simple penalties. In additions a few changes were made: New commer Max comes in and Tobi M. leaves the pitch for Ivan.
After half time Munich was very motivated again and Ramma scores in minute 50 with a good conversion by Robyn. Munich seemed to be a lot more awake now and kept the ball more in hand leading to another converted try again scored by Rama. Keen for the equaliser Munich kept going forward until an offload was intercepted and scored under the posts by Bad Reichenhall with a missed conversion. Another missed tackle led to a line break again right after kick-off and Bad Reichenhall scores once again. Munich answered quickly with another try by Rama and the game seemed to be open again. In Minute 68 Lilo got a yellow card due to an offside position and Bad Reichenhall scores another 3 points with the penalty. With 14 men Munich fights very hard to not receive another score but Bad Reichenhall used their advantage and scored in corner in the 80th minute.
