Bell Block Gladiator’s Rugby Team Fall on their own Swords

The 2015 Rugby Season is over for The Bell Block Gladiator’s Rugby Club. After going unbeaten all season in Taranaki Rugby’s Lowest Senior Division…Senior 3rd’s, they lost their killer touch when it mattered. After a brilliant 1st try from Bell Block, Spotswood United, (Spotty Dogs) took control of the first half to lead Bell Block 17-15 at half time in perfect weather conditions at Bell Block’s Hickford Park.. The 2nd half was a mess for Bell Block. The goal kicker for Bell Block was embrassing, wasting chances to put Bell Block ahead,. Bell Block’s half back passes of the ball were more Netball passes than rugby passes, so many times the ball was dropped by team members and wrong options taken with kicking the ball. Add to that, some excellent defense by the Spotty Dogs, which kept Bell Block unable to score the whole 2nd half, with the Spotty Dogs running out deserved winners 24-15. So 2016 sees Bell Block Gladiator’s Rugby Club back at the bottom level in Taranaki Rugby. Perhaps they need to look at the fitness levels of the players next door at The Bell Block Marist Rugby League Club?
