OC's 29 OH 35
OH survive mud bath scare!
I though this would be a difficult game and so it was. OC's turned out to be much stronger than their league position suggests and could have easilly won this. It was a very heavy pitch which really suited their strong direct runners whose caused us problems throughout.
This turned out to be a real test of character for OH as we behind for much of the game and I am proud to say that we came through it!
Everyone played really well with Charlie and Max leading our comeback from the front.
After a disasterous period either side of half time when the game threatened to run away from us we stomed back to score 3 really good trys. OC'S then came back with 2 which lead to a very nervous last 5 when they could have pinched it
It was great to see young Billy "son of Steve" Zander playing and well done to Florent who really helped to turn the game when he came on and dominated the line out to the point that OC's declined the chance to catch and drive.
Well done guys as this was a real test and a hard fought win which is always more satisfying.
