Great end to the season against the touring Dutch team EZRC
For our last 15 a side game of the season we played EZRC a touring team from Holland. Unfortunately the touring squad were carrying several injuries and could only field 11 fit players . Thanks to a great turn out from our team and some kind players volunteering we were able to have a fantastic evenly matched 15 a side game .
The game was split into 3 parts and the first 20 minutes showed there was nothing between the two games ending up 0-0.
In the second hard fought 20 minutes the Marlbrough team pulled slightly away thanks to a single try and conversion ..
The final quarter once again proved very closely fought with the combined Dutch and Marlborough team scoring two tries but neither converted and Marlbrough also scoring two tries with no conversions.
The final score was therefore 17-10 to Marlbrough and everyone agreed it was a fantastic game of sportsmanship and skilled rugby which players and supporters all agreed .
The Dutch team went home very happy and offering us to visit them in the future for a return match if we ever go on tour to Holland .
Marlborough scorers were :
