Both sides feeling a bit of pressure and making mistakes. They need to regain their composure.

It has been a really tough first half for both teams. They have been so close to their try lines on a few occasions but have not managed to get over the line. Both teams defending so well. Lets hope for points in the second half.

Unfortunate missed penalty as the ball hits the post and bounces back.
Good defensive play by both teams at present, making it difficult to get points on the board.
