A great encounter and closely fought friendly against SCC
More fun and some champagne rugby moments today not least when Max Graham sprinted the length of the pitch beating several defenders along the way, only to be tackled 10 yards short of the line. Great support work by Mateo Alfonso paid off however and he was on hand to take the pass and score a lovely try!
Another great learning experience where we came back from 3-1 down at half time to level at 3 all... we got close a couple more times with clean breaks from Palani and storming runs from Ben Grant, Jack Ryan and a nice blind side break from Max but the SCC defence was solid. Even then the game was pretty even until the last 5 minutes when the boys ran out of steam and SCC ran in a couple more tries to close the game out...
Lots of good rugby and lots of improvement still to make which is what these friendly's are for.
Well done Azy and Max who got on the score sheet again also.
Max is deserved Man of the match for a great all round performance, the above mentioned assist and one great try of his own.
