Gosport & Fareham 64 - 0 Aldershot & Fleet
An exciting game for Gos as all the squad players were given the chance to gain valuable 'game time'.
Wasn't it refreshing to see all our squad players getting game time? Every single player contributed to the performance and the result. Squad members are so important to the overall strategy and balance of a rugby team. Injuries are common in our game and having players who can step up to the mark at a notice is what makes strong sides stronger.
It would be quite wrong to mention any highlights by naming names and leave out any of the players - such was the team effort. So I apologise for mentioning:
Tyrel Morris-Wilson (Strong, good scrummaging and tackling)
Billy Strachan (Good game at hooker, and very good tackling)
Mesha Solanki (Strong, good scrummaging and good line-out throwing)
Lewis Haines (Excellent game, line-outs, running and handling)
Sam Goodsell (Outstanding running performance, personal best?)
Dale Thompson (Very good in the loose, good tackling and running)
James Holstead (Strong, good tackling and always supporting)
Sean Pitt (Class)
Harry Pye (Outstanding, another option at scrum-half)
Dom Philo (Outstanding, showed he can comfortably play at 10)
Dan Sparshott (Everywhere in midfield, good tackling)
Owen Brown (Very good game, handling, passing and what lines to run)
Jack Gander (Good performance, strong running and tackling)
Kieran Corless (Strong in defence and attack)
Albie Pannell (Good game, reliable and fearless)
"Well done today, good game" Billy Strachan

"Great morning of rugby today" Emma Brown
"Great day at the park today lads, nice to see some good team spirit. Well done to ALL the Under 15s" Tracey Haggard
