Old Hales v Worcester
Great Rugby from Old Hales Colts to Stay Top
Old Hales Colts 50 v Worcester Colts 0
An excellent display of rugby from Old Hales Colts made it four wins from four League matches to keep us at the top of the League Table.
After heavy rain overnight we were blessed by the sun for the afternoon and a 1st team pitch in great condition to play on today, although with a strong breeze.
As the match started, Old Hales were immediately on the offensive playing great rugby and keeping Worcester pinned back. Surely enough, after only three minutes Joel Keenan had scored the first try in the corner, followed by a great conversion, against the wind, by Luke Fenton.
After the re-start it continued in the same vain, with great rucking and fantastic pace in the backs which saw Luke Fenton score to the side of the posts, and then convert with seven minutes played.
The next ten minutes were similar with Worcester desperately defending, but eventually unable to prevent another try and conversion by Luke Fenton after 17 minutes. Score 21-0 and we all knew the game was ours.
After the restart Worcester found their selves in the Old Hales half for the first time and had a short period of pressure. A penalty was conceded on the 22 but Worcester missed the kick. Worcester again had a short spell of possession, but solid defence by Old Hales lead to a turnover and our backs used pace and accurate passing to get the ball out to the left for a further try by Keenan.
Hales Colts resumed their dominance and further tries were scored by James Griffiths, Jack Elliot and Adam Babb. Three of the four were converted by Luke Fenton to take the score to 47-0, at half-time, where-upon with another injury for the Worcester Colts they conceded the match.
Final Score Old Hales Colts 50 – Worcester Colts 0 (Conceded at Half-Time)
An outstanding performance from everyone today. Let’s keep this momentum going for the big Halloween showdown with Sutton
