Slovakia Juniors U18 National team Nov 2015

SK

Piešťanský klub po roku a bratislavský po troch mesiacoch existencie poskytli hráčov pre juniorský národný tím U-18.

Prvý zápas zorganizovaný Slovenskou Rugbyovou Úniou, vedenou Vladimírom Kubalom, sa konal v Piešťanoch – centre vývoja juniorov.

Náš tím zažíval chvíle napätia v šatni pred zápasom, keď im Vladimír Kubala predostrel očakávania od nadchádzajúcej udalosti, vysvetľoval postavenie hráčov, stratégiu a výhernú taktiku. Tím TJ Sokol Mariánske Hory nastúpil pripravený ukázať svoju silu a využiť
svoje skúsenosti proti neskúsenym Slovákom k získaniu dobrého výsledku.

Prvý polčas bol pre Slovákov náročný avšak ukázali sa odolní v udržaní defenzívnej línie. Diváci mali možnosť vidieť niekoľko premyslených a rýchlych akcií, napriek tomu, že tím bol zložený len nedávno. Naša predná formácia mala problémy v mlyne, ktorý sa veľakrát zboril a za to boli proti nám nariadené trestné kopy. Avšak nakoľko slovenský tím počas tréningov zapracoval na autových vhadzovaniach, bol schopný pripraviť českým Sokolom krušné chvíle.

Druhý polčas bol vyrovnanejší pre obe mužstvá. Trestný kop prinesol prvé body a nakopol domácich, ktorí v opdovedi začali tlačiť na súpera. Slovensko položilo päťku, premenilo a povzbudení hráči doháňali bodovo súpera. Na koniec žiaľ prehrali, ale len tesným rozdielom 12-15.

Férová hra a velký deň pre slovenské rugby.

After less than a year for Piestany, and only in three months for the new club of Bratislava RKB, the two newest clubs provided Juniors U18 for the Slovak National Team.

Under the great organization of Slovak Rugby Union, led by Vladimir Kubala, the first Rugby match of the Juniors U18 National team took place in Piestany, center of development for Juniors in Slovakia.

A deep pressure could be felt inside the changing, before the kick-off, while Vladimir explaining the expectations of this main event, the strategy to apply, the position of everyone to respect, and the gameplay to develop and hopefully win this match. TJ Sokol Mariánske Hory competed against the Slovak National Team, and expected to show their strength and use their experiences for a good result, in Slovakia.

The first half was tough for Slovakia, and the youths showed an impressive resistance, to hold the defensive line. The few balls got were played very quickly and with such a clear view, regarding the fact the team was recently set up. Slovakia got trouble in the scrum, falling down many times and got penalties against for it. At the same time, the line out proved a great improvement, and the backs were dangerous many times.

The second half was more balanced for both teams. Scoring the first point for Slovakia by a penalty kick, the squad got their motivation stronger, for surprisingly pushing back their opponents. Slovakia scored one try, transformed, and lost finally with such a tight difference of 15-12.

Fair game, and great day for rugby in Slovakia.
