The Colts welcomed West Bridgford from Nottingham who were on tour this weekend to Hyde Park. Straight from the off (despite arriving in the best fancy dress seen for sometime!) WB were intent on playing rugby as well as having a great time. They put the Colts under pressure from the start and continued to do so throughout the game. Both teams were equally matched with their backs and forwards with WB probably looking the more dangerous when they moved the ball.
Some resolute defence and fast attacking counter breaks saw Taunton eventually take the lead and start to build a scoreline. WB countered with their own tries after some good hands and pacey running from their backs. Eventually Taunton held on to win 26-12 despite continual pressure from the Nottingham side.
It was a great afternoon's rugby played in the best rugby spirit against a well coached, well disciplined and very entertaining squad who were a credit to their Coaches and Club. We wish them every success for the reminder of their season.
