This wasn't what we expected. After two late nights and too much tour high spirits some of the boys looked as energetic as hibernating hedgehogs as a glorious sunny Sunday beckoned. Some of us doubters had our money on a narrow win for hosts Burnham, but as Brucey used to say: "Didn't they do well?"
You could criticise some of their tackling and anyone who ran more than 30 yards seemed to want a lie-down afterwards, but there was no doubting the commitment of the team or some of the handling that put the hosts to the sword. A good test of team spirit is to think how well they do the dirty work in the rucks and off the ball, and by and large to a man they did that superbly well.
The early stages did seem quite tight, but as Evesham took a grip with Josh A rampaging, Oli A sniping and Theo cutting through the gaps (including one try-of-the-season contender), it was Burnham who faded as the game went on and the touring parents who took to giving referee Howard some friendly and good-natured "encouragement."
As with Weston on Friday, Burnham's hospitality was excellent and much enjoyed and the morning proved a fantastic finish to a very successful tour which everyone thoroughly enjoyed.
