Reading 12s' Festival
On the hottest October day in living memory, Newbury 14’s also turned up the temperature at Reading on 2nd October.
At a well organised Reading festival, Newbury U14’s won all four of their pool B matches against Tadley (12-7), High Wycombe (19-12), Reading (19-0), and Bracknell (19-7).
Newbury played well as a team with some great runs by the backs and some good scrum and lineout work by the forwards. Tackling was also much improved throughout the squad.
Tries were scored by Barney Serruya, Rhys Thomas, George Biggs, Ollie Harris, Lewis Rawlings, Seb Kennedy-Compston, Jake Runacres and Peter Fairnington.
With the four straight victories, Newbury triumphed over their old adversaries Bracknell who also went into the match unbeaten, to become the U14 ‘B’ winners. Presentations followed and the boys received ‘winners’ T-shirts from the tournament sponsor Imperium as well as a handsome trophy which will be displayed with pride at NRFC.
Well done NRFC U14!
