Belper travelled to Burton this weekend for a highly anticipated outing against old rivals. The first game of 2011 was played in very windy and blustery conditions, but the weather didn’t stop Belper from producing a great team performance, where the forwards dominated the match throughout. The control of the pack created the space for Frank Watson
to leave the opponents standing with darting runs from the back of the scrum.
Fantastic support play from the whole team created tries in the first half from Scotty and Jamie Wayne, and the pressure continued in the second half with further tries from Jake Holmes
, Jake Brewster
and Josh Gwillam.
Merv Holmes, Director of Minis and Juniors Rugby at Belper RUFC, said “What a great way to start the New Year. This team has trained hard this season and the all the hard work really paid off today. I’m really proud of them all and this win is justice for their commitment”.
Training next weekend, followed by a home game on 30th January against Belgrave. KO 11am
