Into Wales for 1st leg of Tour against Caldicott

by Paul Regan

U15's Hunting Dragons

The first stop was the services on the M4 for some breakfast before the first match against Caldicot.

The squad were up for a match after their 4hr journey West and quickly got into their stride.


Conditions were good, a society ref from Gloucester set out the rules and we were off.

A good first period saw us dominate, first with a scrum close to their line after 3 mins, pickup from Tom Regan at 8 who was tackled with two yards to go, great support play from Will Foster at flanker saw him pickup and dive over for our first try - score 0-5.

We were starting to move the ball around and scrum half Ben Lawrence offloaded to number 8 Tom Regan who took it and sidestepped the defender before scoring the try close to the posts conversion from scrum half Ben Lawrence was good, 0-12.

Shortly before the end of the first period prop Dan Kent went for a great individual run from almost the half way line and scored in the corner, 0-17.

We then made 12 changes with some new partnerships and people having to play out of position - Caldicot never gave up and their little pocket rocket of a hooker ran in a great try running around our winger. Another Caldicot try arrived just at the death. Final Score 10-17.

Post Match presentations and Lemonade & Mars bar "Boat Race" competition followed.

Like on Gavin and Stacey we were treated to chips with curry sauce..Yum!!

We gave our pendant to the club and awarded our blackheath hoody prize to our Caldicot player of the match, their hooker.

A great start to out Tour and a big thank you to Caldicot for hosting us so well.
