Brilliant squad performance

A short 45 minute drive on the Centennial Armistice day down to Brackley, one of the longer journeys in our rugby calendar. On a day when we remembered fallen heroes would the Denboys erase the memory of their home loss earlier this season to the Brackley lads.

As the squad entered into changing room 3 with the exclusions of Mr Mattison who apparently has got himself in trouble showing his school teachers his middle finger injury, Fin who clearly is having the same issue as Courtney Lawes as in this bed is too small and a late withdraw of Mr Puk due to illness. The 23 strong eyed the pristine coat hangers awaiting the revenge snapping the same fate that had been dealt to us at Manor Park, but that must wait it’s was game day.

20 minutes in the Denboys had conceded over 30 penalties to their 2 and were 10-0 on the score board. Time to wake Mr Gayle....

Aaron sped in with 2 try’s in 4 minutes plus a conversion the only thing stopping him hogging the scorecard was Mr Stenson also kicking between the posts. Half time, 14-10 to us and the Brackley Players looked a little shell shocked.

Big games need big game players and today Facey, Jinga, Hinchon, Kabi and Stenson started to move through the gears whilst Mr Jones went about his business like Sam Underhill against the Kiwis. These lads lead by example and the whole team started to up their game with Aaron added a really well worked team try 7 minutes into the second half.

Callum then finished off a lovely move 12 minutes later which saw Stenson slide the ball cleverly out of his hands to the floor, then placing a well thought kick through to send Day through for a score.

Stenson then managed to place his hands on the hot headed Brackley captain who wanted to scrap with everyone and anyone. With Facey blowing a well timed kiss at the red faced Brackley boy and it looked like the game may descend into chaos.

The game was won and they knew it as much as we did. There was time for Aaron to run another try in and it was goodnight, god bless!

There is nothing better then avenging a defeat with a strong team effort, using brute force with a covering of skill and a sparkle of pace. Everyone of the squad played their part today and when we closed the door on the cleanest dressing room I have every seen. One word sprang to mind...respect!

See you next year Brackley, lest we forget.
