Little mistakes cost Country under-18s • By Andrew King THE DEFENSIVE handbook was thrown out the window as Canterbury Country under-18 lost 46-31 to Tasman under-18 in West Melton on Saturday. Country coach Glen Dunseath said little mistakes crept into their game, which let them down. “The simple fact was that both sides didn’t deal with the restart well in the first half. We would knock on, then they would score, then they would knock on and we would score,” he said. With 15min to go in the match, Country were well in the game, but a couple of tries at the end blew the score out, Dunseath said. “Look, Tasman are a quality side. They have three really high performing teams in the UC Championship and it shows, “ Dunseath said. Country have a bye in the South Island under-18 competition this weekend, but will play the New Zealand Area Schools team on Saturday. “(New Zealand Area Schools) are not to the same level of competition we have faced in the past two weeks, but they will be tough,” Dunseath said. He said everyone in the Country team were sore but came through the weekend free from major injuries. ELUSIVE: Country’s Conner Smith flies through the air.
