Aylesbury Under 12s - Land Rover Cup U12s Plate Winners
The U12s started their Land Rover Cup campaign with a huge match against Kings RFC, who were the winners of the recent Harlequins U12 Land Rover Cup. Faced with the need to come out of the blocks with all cylinders firing, the Aylesbury forwards won lots of ball, dominating the contact area. When Kings did secure possession and manage to get the ball out wide, the A’s backline worked hard to keep them out to secure a hard-fought win.
Possibly overconfident having just beaten Kings, the boys then contrived to lose 1-0 against a Cobham side who just did not allow Aylesbury to get their game together. However, stung by that result the boys picked up their performance to secure a comfortable win in the last pool stage game.
Heading into the Plate semi-final, and a big start pretty much secured the win by half-time and so the door was open to the final. A’s went into a quick 2-0 lead and looked comfortable. However, Marlow came back strongly and threatened a nervous finish by reducing the gap to one try with 3 minutes to go. Thankfully the boys stepped up a gear and managed to hold out.
