Today saw the first round of the SM series in sun drenched Vänersborg. The conditions were tough for everyone but that didn't stop Borås grind out 2 great results through good old fashioned hard work. Against a strong Gothenburg side Borås earned a 12-12 draw a game that the ladies knew they could have won but for one or two wrong decisions and a very long first half that saw Gothenburg take the lead. Great tackling and a simple but effective game plan brought boras back into the game and earned them a well deserved draw.
The second game saw the Ravens face the formidable champions Vänersborg, for the first 5 minutes Borås stuck to the game plan and took the lead towards half time. A visibly shocked Vänersborg had to adjust before eventually hitting their stride and chalking up a 30 point lead by full time.
Stand out defensive performances from Haglund, Axebrink and Björklund lifted the team through both games and laid a platform to attack. A try from Oscarsson and 2 from the ever dependale Axebrink earned the Ravens Great results and guarantee a fantastic second round on Thursday.
"The work rate from every player was fantastic, we competed at every ruck and tackle and stuck to our game plan. As a coach all you can ask is that players give 100% and produce on a game day what you know they produce at training. Today I saw players click and take control of a game they have taken the next rugby step forwards i'm very proud and cannot wait till Thursday"
