Last try wins.
The Juggers traveled to Deeping to take part in their memorial game, on another very hot Saturday.
With the hosts lending us some players, we set off, at 100 miles an hour, and this lasted for very nearly a minute.
A lot of cut and thrust from both teams, and great defence, with both teams getting tries. Our first was scored by one of the loanee Deeping youth. Sean scored our second when he was able to scamper over following a scrum pick up from our no 8.
Half time, no idea of the score. Warm orange froth (no jugs) and an opportunity for Deeping to arrange some more players for us.
We struggled a little bit in the second half (I'm blaming the heat and long grass), but we had a few highlights. Stu Roddis
getting a second run out, having started on the wing, saw him finish the match at blinsdside flanker, a position he was born to play. A neat (?) restart when Clint asked me to grubba the ball into the open spaces away from the forwards, which worked. I like to think that it was from that well executed move, we scored the last try of the season, when from a penalty in the hosts 22, Andy was able to smash his way through to the line.
Final score, who knows, we lost, but were able to keep our heads held high.
Thank you to Deeping for the game and the loan of a lot of players, and our match official Andy.
So as 2017/18 finishes we have our end of season dinner to look forward to, Friday 8 June. Let Squeak know if you will be there (preferably before 8 June).
Thanks to all who wore the Juggers shirt this season.
