    Did you have a mentor/assessor? If so, what did he think?
    He trudg’d along unknowing what he sought,
    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.

    Now you have done it, I will confide that I think that's a tough first game. It can be very tricky indeed to get the tone right at those games . On the one hand everyone thinks it's a bit of fun, but on the other hand its a rugby game and tempers can be lost

    Well done ! I think you will find regular games more straightforward to handle

    @ OB - I didn't have an assessor/mentor with me. I wanted to get a feel first myself. I usually have a feeling if I've done well myself. I contacted the Club after wards and the feedback from them was good. I think I need to get into better positions, faster at breakdowns. Also be more aware for the defending player (who was on his feet but who has went to ground to the side), and what he's doing with his hands.

    I just let them play rugby, there were a few things that I could've blown up for sooner but was quite happy for them to figure it out for themselves. There was a couple of hands in the ruck (from defending team) for example that didn't involve a big delay in the ball coming out.
