We needed to be at our best against Brackley

by Stephen Melville

Fantastic weather for a change today, made for a great mornings rugby.

The first game against Brackley was a close run thing. Both teams played some superb defensive rugby. Mens Owns constant pressure was rewarded with a slim victory.

Match 1: Mens Own vs Brackley (2-1)

Tries – Ethan, Jack B

The second game was far more open and Mens Own had wised up to a couple of Brackleys training ground moves from a dead ball. Again constant defensive pressure gained the ball and superb support play by the whole team paid off.

Man of the match this week goes to Ethan, tasked with holding the centre of the line and ensuring we kept our width Ethan performed brilliantly. The icing on the cake – two superb tries. Well done Ethan.
