Hungerford U16s 41 v Tadley U16s 5
Tadley travelled to Berkshire rivals Hungerford
Coming off a very tough game away to MK it was a major achievement to find enough fit players to get a team out, the U16s were very thankful to Ben & Josh from the U15s for coming along and helping and again doing their age group proud by having great games.
A very tricky wind going diagonally across the pitch made for tough conditions and Tadley could barely get out there 22, Tadley made it tough for the home side in the beginning with some good tackling but after 12mins Hungerford went over.
Hungerfords forwards have definitely improved and held the edge at set piece for most of the half and with their lively backline they scored 2 more tries but having the worst of the conditions Tadley would have settled for 3 tries down at the break. It was a hammer blow when what looked like a clearance to touch was knocked forward into play for a Hungerford player to pick up and score.
Tadley never really used the conditions in the 2nd half and generally had an off day, Hungerford continued to score tries and Tadley only showed what they were capable of in short bursts, one of these was when after a good break fast ball went to Jon Warwick and the big No.8 went over for a consolation try.
