Home versus Thornbury

A very fresh start to the day for the boys this morning against a strong

Thornbury side who came out on top today in this physical encounter.

With Thornbury a player short and having to borrow a Fram player for each

quarter the game started slowly for Fram and following a kick out the ball

was caught by Thornbury whose player ran through to cross over for the

try to open the scoring in the very early stages of the game. Then shortly

after following some broken play the ball again fell to Thornbury to score the

second try of the game, with both conversions being missed the score ended

10-0 to Thornbury after the first quarter.

A more even second quarter saw Thornbury score again following a scrum,

which was worked wide and following the conversion made the score 17-0

to Thornbury at the half. Fram found it difficult to work the ball wide where

Callum and Ben were waiting to exploit any space.

Fram fought back in the third quarter and got on the score sheet following a

penalty which Charlie tapped to George who ploughed his way over in typical

style and after converting his own try narrowed the gap to 17-7. Thornbury

fought back however and would have scored again but for a great tackle by

Marcus right on the Frampton line.

The fourth quarter saw some competitive play from Fram and some strong

runs by Gabe and Jamie saw them pressurise the Thornbury line but it was the

visitors who scored again right on the final whistle to make the final score 24-7

to Thornbury.

Well done to the boys today in difficult conditions and for the Mums and Dads

for braving the elements to cheer their team on.
