Chess Valley RFC vs Hertford RFC U13Bs – Sunday 16/9/18

One Big centre vs One Big Team performance

New season, new opponents. The U13Bs adventured into the unknown and travelled into deepest, darkest Rickmansworth to play Chess Valley RFC away, and what a game the spectators and players enjoyed.

This was the team’s first experience of a youth game and started with the ceremony of handing out the official numbered team shirts. Lots of congratulations and fist pumps within the team as these were handed out. Great to see the pride in taking on the shirt.

After some negotiations the game started at 11 and Hertford suffered an early setback as a rather sizeable opposition No 12 ran the first score in. Hertford soon got their act together and there was a very competitive scrumming contest throughout the game. The boys did well in one of their first competitive scrums as they learn the pushing technique. Good tackles were being put in all over the pitch, however the rather large No12 managed to slip through a further 2 times and two other Chess tries bought Chess’ tally to 5. Hertford scored 2 in the first half. Can’t remember who for the first try, as the virgin match reporter hadn’t got their pen and paper out…someone please claim it … and Archie Nicklin scored the second. So the first half ended 5:2 to Chess Valley.

The second half saw a much more competitive Hertford team and the standard of tackling was much better as Hertford got to grips with Chess’ bigger players. Some excellent technique shown by Harry Cannon sticks in the mind. Some excellent running rugby and energy on the ball as it swung from one side of the pitch to the other.

Great barrelling runs from Finn Bloomer, Joseph Saunders and Archie Nicklin had the spectators stirred. Hertford’s efforts were rewarded with 5 tries; 2 classic drives from close range from Finn Bloomer, one following a lovely series of passes across the width of the pitch with a lot of players involved, a darting effort from Jason Tsangari from the base of a ruck and two good wingers tries from Freddie Morris and Finlay Nelson.

The Chess No12 scored another 2, which by the spectators agreement, left the score 7 tries each for the match.

A great match to watch, really competitive, a brilliant team effort from Hertford, which had everyone involved and playing their part. Thanks to Robbie Morris and James Bailey for their coaching efforts.

Chess Valley 7: Hertford 7 (Freddie Abbot, Archie Nicklin, Freddie Morris, Finn Bloomer x2, Jason Tsangari, Finlay Nelson)
