Tadley U15s lose away at Bracknell
Tight and entertaining match at Lily Hill Park
Tadley Tigers U15s and Bracknell Bs have had some entertaining and closely fought encounters in recent seasons and Sunday's friendly at Lily Hill Park was no different. Bracknell got off to a great start with a well-chased kickoff and a scrum against the head leading up to a try. Tadley fought back with a great team try which was eventually scored by Tom with George's conversion taking the lead. There was some great attacking play and determined defence on show from both teams and the first half was a very tight thirty minutes with just one more try from Bracknell making the score 12-7 at half time to the home side.
The match continued with eye-catching attacking play, solid rucking and counter-rucking and Tadley retook the lead through a penalty try as winger Calum was high-tackled as he dotted down out wide. A lack of concentration from the kickoff though allowed Bracknell to score their third of the morning and then a breakaway try and conversion made the final score 26-14.
The U15s team have a few training weeks coming up before the next league match at home to Eastleigh in November so if you or someone you know would like to play rugby then Tadley Tigers Under15s are always looking for new players. Training is every Thursday and Sunday if there is no match.
