away vs PLO
Genève PLO (36-13) GC Zürich (HT 29-3)
Match report by Jean-Baptiste Flüeler
After the cancellation of the preparation tournament in Schaffhausen and a preseason with some facilities problems, it was difficult to say how the team was going to perform in their first game of 2017. Geneva Plans les Ouates, the unbeaten leader of the NLA, already played a game against Cern, which they won comfortable with a bonus point.
After a 3.5 hours train ride the squad arrived at the new facilities of Geneva PLO. The team knew that they had nothing to lose and had a great start in the game. PLO was stuck their 22s, but Zürich couldn’t convert the domination in to points. PLO capitalized on Zurich mistakes and scored five tries in the first half. First Half Score: 29:03
The second half saw Zurich scoring two wonderful tries, after the forwards and backs built multiple phases in front of the try line. Despite a 36:13 loss, there are a lot of positive things that can be taken out of this game!
See you all for the first home game of 2017 on the 2nd of April.
