Blues in Charge But ...
Written by John Methven   
Sunday, 22 November 2015


The Blues turned on the style  last Saturday at Fort Matilda  running up six tries in the first half then retreated into a casual mind set for much of the second forty. This allowed the league's basement team to gain some respectability, outscoring their guests by twelve points to seven.

Early signs looked good for the Blues, clearly outmuscling the home side while handling confidently and establishing themselves in the Greenock 22 and then  winning a series of penalties. It was just a matter of time before they took the lead.  From a penalty five metre scrummage flanker Dayle Turner picked up and drove over.  Finlay Smith converted.  From the re-start the Blues found themselves stuck in their own territory before allowing home scrum half Andrew McDougall to scamper away to score an unconverted try.

Three tries from Kirkcaldy in five minutes either side of half time  turned this game on its head.  Whitecraigs, dominating ball possession and territory, controlled early proceedings and deserved a 6-0 lead from two Stephen Gillies penalties. Nevertheless there was heart in Kirkcaldy defending and even with Dayle Turner binned in the 17th minute, their try line remained intact for most of the first  half.

Whatever deficiencies the Blues have had this season, try scoring has not been on one of them.  After being stuck in their 22 a telling break up the left win piloted by Sasa Tofilau and assisted by Finlay Smith earned a penalty  ten metres out.  Quick thinking set up a tapped play and there was little Whitecraigs could do to  stop George Mangalo's twenty three stones crashing over the line.  Smith added the extra points for a 7-6 home lead.

George Mangalo dives over to put the Blues into a short-lived lead

Still looking to pick up their second win of the season,Kirkcaldy came close to snatching an unlikely win at Lasswade last Saturday. After going 17-0 down after another indifferent first half showing they pulled themselves together later in the game and indeed went 18-17 ahead with ten minutes left  only to concede a try from a driven line-out maul.

Lasswade were certainly not the All Blacks in disguise but they made Kirkcaldy look distinctly second rate in the early stages as  they dominated possession and handling comfortably. The Blues did not help themselves with the loss of a succession of penalties all too easily incurring the displeasure of the exchange English referee who eventually binned two of their players.

Kirkcaldy Colts 19 Glenrothes 12

Winter conditions arrived with a flourish for this closely contested game against two evenly matched teams. Steady morning rain gave way to a heavy downpour 10 minutes before kick off, producing a heavy pitch and difficult handling conditions.

The first half was played almost exclusively in the Glenrothes half of the pitch. Kirkcaldy shaded the forward encounters and produced good ball for the backs but a cutting edge was lacking. Several promising attacks broke down in the opposition 22 and the ball was turned over, allowing Glenrothes to clear their lines. The Glenrothes fly half played some intelligent rugby firing high kicks towards the full back. For the most part Harry dealt with these admirably in testing conditions.

Introducing Sasa

It says some thing about the stamina of twenty year old Sasa Tofilau that less than twelve hours after a twenty four hour flight from Melbourne he was on the field for his first Kirkcaldy game against Preston Lodge on 24 October.  In that game he quickly endeared himself to Kirkcaldy supporters with a sumptuous off load which produced a Quintan Sanft try.

Like Quinny he is a Samoan, born in the village of Leulumoega on 9 May 1995, one of a family of four. The Tofilau family, like so many Samoans emigrated to New Zealand in 1999 settling in Auckland. Sasa emphasised just how important the family unit is to him and wanted  his gratitude to his single mother recorded
