Würzburg, 5. Mai 2018, Bericht: Constantin Kuhl

 

Würzburger RK : München RFC II
25 : 17

Die schlechte Nachricht vorweg: Die Zweite verliert ein hart umkämpftes und hoch spannendes Spiel in Würzburg.
Der Spielverlauf wiederum zeigte zwei Mannschaften auf Augenhöhe. Die Gäste aus München zeigten sich gegensätzlich zu einem holprigen Start in die Reise nach Würzburg von Anfang an hungrig und legte nach 4 Minuten einen Traumstart hin. Patrick Schenk tauchte ins Malfeld ein, Adam Popherwell besorgte die Erhöhung.
Leider verwaltete der MRFC diese Führung dann zu stiefmütterlich, vielversprechende Chancen wurden nicht genutzt, Strafkicks fanden das Aus nicht und so konnten sich die Gastgeber in der 30ten Minute zurück ins Spiel kämpfen und glichen mit einem erhöhten Versuch aus.
Davon aufgerüttelt setzte die Zweite psychologisch wichtig kurz vor der Halbzeit nochmal ein Zeichen: Nach einem 5m Gedränge in der Overtime der ersten Halbzeit überquerte Pfeiler Mathieu die Linie mit roher Gewalt. Die Erhöhung durfte aufgrund einer Zeitüberschreitung nicht mehr ausgeführt werden. Eine interessante Entscheidung des durchweg souveränen Schiedsrichters.
Nach Beginn der zweiten Halbzeit verwalteten die Münchner ihre 12 : 5 Führung erneut fahrlässig. Würzburg gelangen 3 Versuche davon einer erhöht. Diese 22 zu 12 Führung konnte auch der verrückte Ivan nicht mehr durch sein geistesgegenwärtiges Kickchasing und dem dadurch verdienten Versuch wettmachen, setzte jedoch ein wichtiges aufrüttelndes Zeichen. Der neue Spielstand von 22 zu 17 mit 10 Minuten verbleibender Spielzeit verlautete: " Da ist noch alles drin".
Dementsprechend zeigten sich die Gäste risikobereiter, was in der Retrospektive jedoch unglückliche Entscheidungen und mangelnde Disziplin anstatt mehr Punkte hervorrief. Die Zweite vergab unnötige Straftritte. Der Letzte erwies sich dann als Genickbrecher: Der erfolgreiche Kick in der 79 Minute brachte den 25 zu 17 Endstand und nahm den Gästen den wichtigen Defensivbonuspunkt weg. 
Dick of the day: Der wohl umkämpfteste Titel an diesem Tag, während Coach Sam Cross und Constantin Kuhl ein Duell darin lieferten wie viele Minuten man zu spät sein kein bevor die Mannschaft ohne einen fährt machte am Ende dann doch Javier Gonzales  das Rennen (seine Kicks fanden oft das Aus nicht, ausserdem erwartet er ein zweites Kind - Herzlichen)Glückwunsch!)
Man of the match: Nick van Ingen (Rannte unermüdlich von einem Tackle zum nächsten und war über 80 Minuten ein Vorbild)
Hammer: Mathieu (lehrte die Würzburger durch mehrere krachende Tacklings das fürchten)

München RFC II : TSB 1847 Ravensburg
15 : 31

The MRFC 2.XV was playing home from the first time this year, against Ravensburg,  looking forward to get a win and show all the hard work we have been putting in training since January. Perfect weather, a huge crowd and a highly motivated Munich side set the mood for a great rugby day.
The game started with a high tempo with both sides trying to dominate the game. MRFC open the score with a penalty from Robin. The Ravens answered with a converted try and after that Munich show the best rugby of their season so far. Two tries scored by Adrian and Javier (after a really nice play with lots of offloads) and a conversion leave Munich with 15 points. But Ravensburg never stopped fighting and score some tries to leave the scoreboard 15-19 at halftime.
The second half was tougher for the home side. The Ravens attacked almost constantly and the Lions defended really well but a few mistakes and miss tackles let Ravensburg score more tries and finish with a victory. Tough game for MRFC who finished with 14 men after Javier was sent off with a yellow card on the last minutes.
Lots of work is coming up in the next training sessions to step up and win the next games of the season.

Nürnberg, 7. April 2018, Bericht: Adam Popperwell

 

TSV 1846 Nürnberg : München RFC II
31 : 8

It was a perfect day for rugby. MRFC were scheduled to play Nuremberg away. The weather in Nürnberg was a warm 21 degrees, paired with a gentle breeze, making the conditions brilliant for fast attacking Rugby. The game kicked off with Munich dominating the play, with clear attacking purpose. However, Nuremberg's defence held strong until they capitalised from a turn over in the ruck, creating a decent counter attack which led to the first try. Munich were quick to respond from the kick off. Placing pressure on Nuremberg in their own 22, until they conceded a penalty, which Jamil converted, putting Munich on the scoreboard. Nürnberg managed to score another counter attacking try, in the form of a kick chase. Munich were again, quick to respond. With strong line breaking runs from Patrick Schenk, Tobias Le, and Ramathan, Munich gained brilliant field position. Munich's try was a result of a strong line out and forward play, allowing Ramathan to crash over the line. The rest of the first half was frustrating for Munich, who would position themselves in try scoring areas, only to miss their chance through errors. Halftime- 14:8.
The second half was a true test for both teams, with the heat of the day and the intensity of the play, tiredness took its toll. Regardless of the heat, Munich played some great rugby in parts. Unfortunately, only to be let down by Errors. Nürnberg continued to attack at Munich's organised and tough defence, to score 2 further tries. Although it was not a win for munich, the scoreboard does not show how close the game was at Points.

Augsburg, 11. November 2017, Bericht: Alexander Marka

 

RFC Augsburg : München RFC II
5 : 10

It was a cold, rainy and stormy day, however all players including around 10 supporters met punctually at 11am to catch the train to Neusäß. After a short hike through the suburbs of Augsburg we arrived. We got changed and had a short talk before warming up. Warm up went very well, with everybody focusing on their jobs. Coach Warner and Steve Harries took us back to the changing rooms and held such passionate speeches that the players didn’t notice the icy winds until the end of the game. Kick Off for MRFC. The forwards Barik, Dobson and Vogel put a lot of pressure on the opposition with their chase, forcing Augsburg to kick the ball to touch. Line Outs worked well with Kritzer throwing precise balls and Martin and Delgado Lifting our jumpers up high. MRFC continued to push forward, playing some good phases. The support play was strong and the rucks were secured well by Pfältzer and the forwards. Pretty soon Lefherz was popped the ball and he scored a try right under the posts. Fly Half Popperwell easily converted the try. After that Lefherz decided that he had done a good job and didn’t have to play anymore, especially because he dislocated his finger. Lienhard replaced him and continued to work hard throughout the game. The ball went back and forwards, nevertheless, MRFC continued to put pressure on Augsburgs backs, with Gonzalez, Marka and Schranz shutting down space and forcing Augsburg to kick to touch over and over again. Kenison and Mies stopped any threat coming in from the oppositions wing. MRFC received a penalty, which once again was easily scored by Popperwell. Half time and it was 10:0 to München RFC.
Tackling was strong in the first half, however we wanted to do better. In the second half we had less possession and had to rely on our defensive abilities. Despite, a strong start to the second half, Augsburg scored a try in the corner, but did not convert. This is when we realised, that we have to switch back on and play like in the first half. We started subbing players off, as we needed fresh energy with all the defensive work we were doing. Michelfelder came onto our Wing and had to deal with many of Augsburg’s clearance kicks going behind the defensive line. Kuhl, Mannhardt and van Ingen came on to strengthen our Pack. The team showed great mentality until the final whistle. Making one positive tackle after another, forcing Augsburg to make simple handling errors, due to our line speed. When we had the ball, we made quite a few meters, however we didn’t secure the ball enough, which we will work on in future. The last 10 minutes were just pure defence by MRFC. Roberts-Harry, who had a great game, made Schranz jealous with a shoulder dislocating, try saving tackle. We were lucky to have the MRFC Treasurer Ehlers to replace him and play for the rest of the game. I was very proud of the team and still am. It was great to see the passion in everyone’s eyes and as the final whistle went you could feel how happy every single MRFC player was. We celebrated the rest of the night, especially on the train.
