It Started with a Hinckley Kick and it ended with a Hinckley Kick.


Local Rivalry

When Hinckley play Bozzy it's always a good hard game as the local team from down the road.

It Started with a Hinckley Kick and it ended with a Hinckley Kick.

All in all it was our first game back after a long time off or what seems a long time off.

We kicked off and put in the first bone crunching tackles soon to win it back. I thought that was going to be the tempo for the hole game ...... but i was mistaken. We soon slowed the pace. To sum up the first half we started slow giving away some stupid penalties which lead to Bosworth knocking one over for 3. Outside centre G.randad slotted one back making it 3 all but then Bosworth followed by an unconverted try. But like a true captain Ash Jones he lead it from the front to carry one over for the team after some top forward rucking and straight out brutal work. Half time it was all to play for at 10-8.

Second half their was some good rugby played by both sides and poor hooker A.Mongers face dropped when he got not 1 try but 2 tries disallowed. Bosworth got lucky when they caught a lucky interception from Hinckleys 10 in their 22 and ran most of the length of the pitch also converting. Then from some good all round play Loose head prop N.Arg bowled over bringing it to 13-15 in the last phase. With a tad pressure put on G.randad to convert he was told to wait for the 2 touch judges to get behind the post after a few minutes of them finally getting their it skimmed the outside bar.

Finally result 13-15.
