We turned up with 13 boys so Wimbledon kindly lent us two wingers who ended up on the winning team! Another great performance by the tight five – (front row James O’Sullivan/Price brothers & Luke & Benoit 2nd row) totally dominated the scrums to create a fantastic platform to play off and Benoit (best forward) in particular used some great footwork to make valuable yards. Felix at No.8 dominated the lineout and the all the back row (Jimmy & Jacob) carried and supported well to break down the Wimbledon defence. Jacques had a great first session at SH before turning an ankle (we wish him well) and Tom Williams stepped in from FB to make a big impact, distributing and nipping around the fringes. Pete controlled the game well at FH using the forwards to bust holes before releasing the backs. The two centre Theo & Riley (best back) had a barnstorming performance, repeatedly breaking through and were rewarded with a try each. An excellent performance across the team that will set us up for the U21 Cup Semi-Final at Easter (date tbc). Thanks to all the supporters, Jotty and Richard for coaching support and Neville for the team photo.
