Another victory

The Veterans in Magenta and Black complete another victory as the undefeated run continues....

Another Stirling effort from the lads produced a valiant and
defiant win at Leighton Buzzard on Saturday.

The Squad was a bit of a last minute coming together (thanks those from the 3's) and certain players had to play out of position.
The team gelled quite nicely thou in the first half with good fitness levels by everyone to get around the park ensured some good moves with multiple phases to score some good team tries.
Aylesbury went into half time with 10-0 lead, which should have been a bit more to the good if were honest.

After changes in the second half and some good play allowed Howie to score in the right corner and it seemed to be plain sailing for us from then on.
When the buzzards upped the work rate and improved it started to get much tighter and has the half worn on the Rugby started getting scrappier and towards the end it to turned into a nail biter.

We allowed them to score two tries from our mistakes and numerous times
allowed them to escape when we were camped on the their line. Giving away stupid penalties in our frustrations! (Forwards!)
In the end a 15-12 win was a fair result.

Highlights
Julian's Tap Penalty knock on
Chris Bulpett's was it/wasn't it knock on over the line
Simon clearing out his own man (I think you owe Gordon a pint!)
Martin & Brian playing in the Backs.
Good Tackling all game.
Lineout.
