U18 Slovakia vs Malta 15 : 7

A first victory for Slovakia in this competition, after two close defeats against Bulgaria and Bosnia. At the end, the Slovak squad got quickly more experiences and makes it profitable to increase the gameplay. Less balls dropped, better support, may be the best scrum of this group with a reliable line out are the ingredients of the success.

Malta started well with the first half by scoring a try, and Slovakia answered back with the same, but the try was not transformed for the 2 points. As expected, I knew Malta was heavier and Slovakia lighter to have the ability to move around and to launch the game on the wing. It made the difference opening gates and the backs had few opportunities to go through.

The fighting spirit during the game was amazing, showing boys have a strong strength and are able to resist to the pressure.
