Tough opposition held to 10 all draw


Sunday 8th saw us travel to the fantastic facility that is Newbury RFC. 23 players were available for the fixture along with our ever enthusiastic support.

After a few amendments to the schedule, the day was spilt into 4 short games with a 2 minutes silence at 11 `o clock which was very well observed.

Perfect conditions for rugby resulted in a very even contest between the two squads. The forwards drove well and fought hard providing the backs with plenty of good clean ball. Frustratingly some of the passes did not stick and as a result, the expansive running game we have witnessed of late went missing. Encouragingly the players stuck to their guns and supported each other through a pretty tough day.

The final result for the four matches was an honourable 10-10 draw. A number of players put in good performances but our Player of the Day was Rhys. Congratulations all and well done and thanks again to our travelling support.
