We struggled more this week than probably any match this season, the game was played over three 10 minute games. The format was different to normal as each team had only six plays before handing over possession.

Kirby started stronger as our game for the last couple of months has been about good skills and ball retention not out and out attack.

Kirby attacked more aggressively than we did and it took us several minutes to attack with the same vigour. We went into the final game 9 – 8 down but produced some of our best work of the season to win it comfortably in the end. It is good for the kids to play different formats as it can only help there development.

We would like to than the Kirby players and coach for a great game and hospitality,we look forward to some hard fought matches in the future.

Match score Carlisle won 14 – 11.
