Positives despite one-sided scoreline


Match report from Jason Clarke

There were so many positives in Yatton’s play in this return fixture that it was hard to understand how the scoreline was so one-sided. For a start the attitude and commitment at the breakdown and in the tackle was tremendous for large parts of the game and by comparison to the last time these teams met Yatton showed huge improvement across the board. Unfortunately, it is also true that within five minutes at the start of both halves Yatton conceded two converted tries that gifted the guests 28 points in return for very little effort which made any sort of comeback extremely difficult.

Probably Yatton’s best period of play was from ten minute into the first half. By then they had appreciated Clevedon’s game plan and managed to get defenders in close, making big hits and often turning over the ball for good measure. The ball was swiftly moved away from the breakdown but all too often the attacking player found himself isolated and turned over in the tackle either losing or knocking the ball on in the process and taking all the momentum out of the Yatton attack. This was probably the biggest difference between the sides. Clevedon’s attack looked to maintain momentum from the breakdown or tackle for two or three phases drawing in the Yatton defence after which they would move it wide and Yatton were then unable to cover across in sufficient numbers.

Significant milestones from today included the successful return from injury of captain Jake Damaral who had been out since September and the introduction of new squad member Adam Weaver who showed huge potential during his second half contribution.
