Away at Yatton

You’ve heard of a game of two halves, well this was a game of two games !

Both won by Fram in a very entertaining, fresh and foggy February morning.

Game 1 - Yatton 5 Frampton Cotterell 20

With both teams adjusting to changes of rules for this game Frampton took

the opportunity to rotate players in different positions. Ben taking lineouts and

Leo at scrum half for the start of the first game.

An even start saw both teams sounding each other out before Lewis broke

the deadlock with a try in the corner. The scores were soon level though when

Yatton pressure paid off with a try through the centre.

Frampton got their noses in front again when following a scrum Lewis passed

the ball out to Jamie who powered his way over to score. Some great passing

saw another try for Fram, again a scrum, Lewis to Matt, Matt to Gabe, picked

up by George and over for the try, it was poetry in motion ! Another score

followed, this time from a penalty to Fram, taken by Jack, a short pass to

George and there was only one outcome, to make the final score 20-5 in

Frampton’s favour.

Game 2 - Yatton 5 Frampton Cotterell 25

It was very much of the same in the second game and an identical move

to the first game when following a penalty, Jack passed to George who

bulldozered his way through to open the scoring. Yatton quickly got back on

level terms though when after a scrum and some good passing saw a try

through the middle. Fram fought back though and when the ball was stolen

by Jamie, a strong run saw him break through the Yatton line to score in the

corner. A great run by Jack saw him advance well into the Yatton half and

following the tackle the ball was picked up by an ever alert Gabe to cross over

for a score. Confidence was high and Jamie scored again right at the end of

the half following another great passing move to make the score 20-5 to Fram

at the half.

The second half was a more even contest and the only try scored was again

by Fram. Another penalty by Jack was again passed to George and a string

run resulted in Lewis picking up and going over for the score. Fram were

unlucky not to add to the score though as several powerful runs by Finn saw

him unlucky not to break through and an ever persistent Charlie made some

vital tackles and runs to keep Yatton out. Great support as always from Ollie

ensured that Fram stayed strong throughout.

It certainly seemed that the training over the past few weeks had paid off and

the boys were encouraged by the vocal support from coaches Ned, Adam,

Steve and Brian and parents alike, smiley faces all round, well done team !
