True Rugby Spirit at Hyde Park
Taunton victorious but Wellington show true grit
Battered by low numbers, injury and illness Wellington U14's arrived with just 7 players on Sunday morning, every boy a real credit to their team as many teams would have called off but these boys just wanted to play. Taunton had good numbers so a game of 13 aside was agreed and 6 players from the home team pulled on Wellington RFC shirts, the game was well balanced and both squads moved the ball well, Taunton scored early tries which was quickly answered by a blistering run from a Wellington winger, with a clever chip through gather and try under the posts,
Taunton swapped in 6 different players into the Wellington team for the second half. A game played in the true spirit of rugby.
