After last weeks disappointing display Bicester U14’s travelled into Warwickshire determined to make amends against Harbury. The game was just a few minutes old when good handling found Dan W on the overlap to run in to score 5 - 0. This set the tone for the rest of the match where it was mainly one way traffic with Dan T taking the ball in his own 22 from the kick off and racing the length of the pitch to score 10 – 0. Then the ball was moved into the backs who executed a No.1 move to put Benjamin over which Dan W converted 17 – 0. Ben L took the ball on and drove with the forwards deep into the Harbury 22 from where Josh peeled off the back to drive over 22 – 0. Mark was the next to get involved and with two dummies glided through the Harbury defence untouched to score with Dan W converting 29 – 0. Harbury were trying but just couldn’t get their hands on the ball and after a series of rucks the ball was recycled for Garin in support to score converted again by Dan W 34 – 0. To end the first half the backs spread the ball for Tom C to go over wide out 41 – 0.
The second half started with Harbury determined to keep the score down and putting in some good tackles, however Bicester worked their way into the Harbury 22 and Garin made a break from the back of a maul down the blind side to run in unopposed 46 – 0. It was then the turn of Grant to show some speed to outstrip the defence going so fast that he nearly tripped up but managed to keep his feet going to score under the posts with Christian converting 53 – 0. Some more good movement of the ball out to the wing saw Cameron put in a strong run with an excellent hand-off to score, Christian converting 60 – 0. Wanting to do more than just kick conversions Christian turned on the speed to score in the corner 65 – 0. Bicester again pressed and from a ruck Harrison reached over to score with Christian converting again 72 – 0. There was time for one last move and from a scrum Ieuan went blind and fed Benjamin who raced away for his second try making the final score 77 – 0.
The boys played really well and kept their discipline together to play as a team, but there is still plenty to work on and with less lateral running the score line could have been even more.
