The day had finally arrived when it was time to kick off this season’s 7’s competition for the Uppsala Ladies. Rugby teams in the northern division group on both men’s and women’s side had gathered at the countryside-inspired pitch in Sandviken. The day treated us with all seasons in one day when it started out a bit chilly and overcast, the sun came out to warm us up in time for the second game and at mid-day it was a full blast snow storm!
Uppsala ladies had a strong squad with a good mix of new and experienced players and took on Enköping in the first game. Even though Uppsala didn’t bring their best play out on the pitch, lacking in speed and “working in threes” our girls were fast up and stressed Enköping very well, which lead to Uppsala having control of the ball during most of the game. Uppsala could break through in the middle as well as using good hands and getting the ball out wide to score on the wings. Final score after 2x7 min was 7-48 to Uppsala.
In the second game our ladies were up against Stockholm Exiles and could unfortunately not pull through and play as calm and organized as last week in Vänersborg. Exiles could break through too easy and Uppsala did not manage to get their own play going. Game ended 0-25 to Stockholm Exiles.
Determined to get more points on the board and end up in the top two of the day, Uppsala went on the pitch for the third time to play the new team Stockholm Berserkers. It was a quite unstructured game with the ball flying in all directions at some points. But Uppsala kept it cool and took the opportunities when they opened up. It was great seeing some of our new girls taking initiative and score a few tries. The whole team gave their all and our more experienced players lead by great example in the rucks and by stealing the ball back. Final score in the third game 45-0 to Uppsala Ladies.
The last game of the day on the ladies side was a final played between 1st and 2nd place (Stockholm Exiles-Uppsala Ladies). The game was played outside of the league competition, therefore not resulting in any points in the table. Uppsala knew what they were up against and even if the final score doesn’t show the improvement, Uppsala played much better and stopped the Exiles ladies from breaking through in the middle. Unfortunately we weren’t quick enough to cover Exiles fast support play on the wings. The final ended 37-0 to Exiles.
Despite the losses Uppsala played good rugby and showed that the progress curve is going straight up. Our ladies have three weeks to go home and work on the some improvements and then show what then can do in round 2 of the 7’s competition, this time played in Enköping 15th May 2016.
