Great Clash for the U12s at Hornets
Over 50 boys in action
North Bristol U12s made the trip down the M5 to play a Hornets team that they had never met before. It was great to see a large squad and two pitches marked up so all the boys, just over 50 in total from both clubs, getting a good amount of match time. Both teams separated into two even squads and two games of 15 minutes each way were played.
Hornets gained an early advantage using their experience of players in specific positions but North Bristol used their skills and team work to move the ball into space to score some great tries. In the Reds Bobby's tackling was outstanding and George P continued his recent good form. George V also enjoyed his best game of the season so far, standing strong in the tackle and Will and Ellis were at the powerful best.
In the Blues Morgan was at his fire-cracker best, scoring three tries and also in that team Chris stood out too with some great team play and support.
Overall it was a superb mornings rugby, highly competitive but played in an excellent spirit. Hopefully we can welcome Hornets to Oaklands later in the season.
