Lions Beat Unicorns 34-19 in First Ever League Match

Lions Beat Unicorns 34-19 in First Ever League Match

A baptism of fire for the Unicorns at their inauguration into the League


First ever encounter between the two teams with the Unicorns arriving in a wet Cardiff ground.
The weather conditions were good with light, scattered showers before and after the match. Overcast with a light breeze.

A physical game was felt by both teams as the wet weather dictated a forwards oriented game, with many big carries from the Lions keeping the pressure building in the Unicorns own half.

The Unicorns capitalised on some Lions mistakes to counterattack and score, utilising the clearance kicks and experience of their fly half.

A few casualties were caused, including Martin Plant ending up in A&E (again)!

Game ends 34-19.

Well done and well played to Berkshire Unicorns for their inaugural IGR League match.

Lions now prepare for their next League match away against the Bisons on November 9th.
