UNDERSTRENGTH COLTS BOW OUT OF NATIONAL PLATE - 17-12
With only 2 U17 forwards as replacements and a No.8 playing in the centre, the Colts suffered the Sunday Syndrome again.
With key players unavailable or injured, a young Colts side containing 6 U17s faced a very physical Barkers Butts side and gave as good as they got for 80 minutes. Eventually BBs had their loose head sent off (red) for punching and their 7 yellow carded, but it was too late despite, a late try and conversion. The Colts were never in front in this game but now look forward to finishing off the league and on into the N Mids Cup.
