Hegians run out of steam at Wetherby
From Jim Malia
Hegians and Wetherby fought out a cracking contest at Grange Park today. Both sides missing important regulars played some entertaining rugby. Hegians led 12-10 at half time with a good try from Xander after Tom W stole a line out on the Wetherby 5m line, and a super individual try from Will who showed pace & power to surprise the home defence. Home No 8 Briggsy scored 2 well taken tries for the hosts.
The second half was hard work for Hegians after they allowed Briggsy to score his hatrick shortly after half time. Hegians hit back with a 2nd try from Xander after good work from Ewan & Jacob. 17-17. Unfortunately our small squad of 15 ultimately succumbed to the power of the hosts pack who ran out 34-17 winners.
Great to see Jacob back in the front row, credit to Seb for a couple of smart breaks, Luke for some big hits showing off his improved fitness, Oli who had a confident match against his old club, Jack who was back to his best in the back row and Captain Conor who led by example as always.
