U12’s Storm into the season!

The Rugby League season must have started as we finally had some half decent weather and none of that wet stuff.

Saturday saw Catterick Crusaders u12s make a start on their 2024 season with the Spring 6’s festival held by Gateshead Storm.

Having 18 players named for the day it was set to be a fantastic day of rugby. Head coach Adam had put out two teams and a few subs for each team. Catterick A was made up of, Iyzaak, Oliver, Callum, Henry, Bobby, Harrison, Steeno, Noah, Cameron. Catterick B was made of, Ben, Sam C, Sam K, Archie, Flynn, Henry F, Sam H, Caleb and Jack.

The first game started off with a mostly new set of players from Consett. Consett were a bottom age side (mainly U11’s) but that didn’t put Consett off, as they put in a good game against us, tackling and running hard.

With tries coming in from most of the players for Catterick, it was a good game in attack, With everyone working well together, completing sets, tackling and supporting each other.

Next up was Catterick B’s first game against Cramlington. Catterick B took a little time to get started with it being the first league game for most of the players but they did fantastically well. A lot grit and determination came from our debutants. Sam K and Archie stepped up to give our debutants the help needed to guide them on the pitch. There was great tackling and runs from all of Catterick B and they never gave up. Cramlington took the win in this game.

Catterick A against Gateshead Storm was also under way at the same time. This proved to be a tough game initially but soon Catterick A were all firing and putting in a great shift. Henry P who was also a debutant for Catterick played a fantastic game, getting fully stuck in.

The day pretty much carried on the same for Catterick A who didn’t lose a game all day, showing off their skills and determination to keep up the good work for the day. Each player crossing over that try line. Showing off their new skills which they have been working hard on with coach Adam.

Catterick B made a few changes letting Noah and Steeno, step up to give them guidance and a confidence boost.

There was a lot of determination shown from the B team, who didn’t let their heads drop and keep showing what they can do. Being guided by Coach H throughout the day.

Catterick B showed such confidence as the day went on. A lot of support running, ball handling and great tackling. Finishing off their day with a great game against Consett.

A fantastic start to the season, with everyone playing in great spirit. Such fantastic sportsmanship from everyone and making sure we support each other throughout the day. Every single player played outstanding.
