WASPS Occys 17 vs H&F Vets 58
A good run out and a top day out too...
Playing into the gentle winter sunlight was pretty poetic but the pace set aside any musings. It was a blistering start to a very busy game and in open play this pace largely endured throughout. Some very sharp use of space by the centres on the left about level with halfway led to Bish being unleashed and he duly did the dutiful.
Dan E contributed a characteristic sniping try - finding gaps where by rights there should not have been any. Unfortunately for us the Oppo had some very well thought out plans. And how. By the halftime they had clocked-up 4 tries to our 2.
In the 2nd half there was an all too fleeting revival of fortune with Marc, Guillaume and Danny combining emphatically to score with plenty of support. However, the Oppo continued to pile on the points with one cove clocking an enviable 5 try tally.
Marc later produced a seet little grubber with just a touch too much on it and G did a number of snake charms through packed defence. Brendan V played his most convincing to date, well done. Match also saw a debut for Johnny Cahill.
A really impressive turnout and great fun. Well done one and all.
