Walden u16's win a fantastic games against Sudbury 43-24

Walden produced their best all-round team performance to win 43-24 against our friends from Sudbury

A very warm welcome to all the players, coaches and parents from Sudbury, a fantastic atmosphere on and off the pitch and all set for a cracking game of rugby!

Both teams started well with not much gained by either team in the early exchanges. Sudbury's 12 took a superbly timed intercept from the middle of the park and cantered over to score under the posts for a 0-7 lead. Walden didn't panic, continued to play to the game plan and worked the ball around all areas of attack. With our forwards carrying well and competing hard at the breakdown we had options in attack and started to mix up those options well. Hugo adapted really well to playing at 12, working out the moves and allowing variety. Ryan was fist to score, Alex converting to draw level. More hard work across the pitch before Finn finished well in the corner, shortly after Ryan took his second with a trademark powerful break, shrugging off defenders to score under the posts, Alex adding the extras for 19-7. However, a superb and quick response from Sudbury just before half time took the scores to 19-12, all to play for.


Walden had to tweak a few areas and continue the way they had already played. Shortly after the restart Ryan was off again, another break and under the posts. More phase play with the ball in the Sudbury half, a good break and Olly so close to scoring but inches short, Kaelen in support to take it over for another try. Then it was the turn of the backs. a goof break from Alex to score under the posts. Sudbury had a great response though, winning the ball shortly after the restart, knocking it on, winning it back and then Ali Meadows at 10 beating defenders out wide to score after a long run in the far corner. Walden were straight back, a long break from our 10 this time, Alex also scoring in the far corner. 43-17 with a few minutes, fittingly Sudbury were on the case and took the final score under the posts to make the final score 43-24.

Anther great game of rugby between two quality teams, a good challenge for all players both physically and technically. We loved hosting Sudbury and look forward to seeing them soon. Well played Walden, a super team performance, we really mixed it up well and controlled our possession well. Our tackling was crisp, all back row players heavily involved in the breakdown and tackles. Alex Benn was excellent, winning a turnover and carrying well. Aidan won MotM for a terrific performance but was close run by Olly who was immense. Beau was highly effective and made excellent ground after a few technical tweaks. Ryan had a hattrick, Alex two tries and four conversions. Oisin had some great runs out wide and was unlucky not to score. James played like a flanker and put in a very memorable tackle towards the end. Excellent work lads!
