Harborough Colts visited Dunstablians for their first match in the National Colts Competition and came away deserved winners.


Harborough Colts visited Dunstablians for their first match in the National Colts Competition and came away deserved winners. They still look like a team that is trying to gel but they have strength in all positions and that showed as they outplayed and out thought a strong Dunstablians team. The initial play was even with the home team having more of the territory. Harborough looked dangerous with the ball in hand but all too often their passing and support let them down. The first score came mid-way through the first half when winning possession from broken play they surged forward and when the ball reached Harvey Slade he was too quick for the defence and touched down beneath the posts for a try converted by Jake Noble. Harboro gradually began to get their game together and just before half time drove over the Dunstablians line. The ball was held up and from the third 5 metre scrum the ball was picked up by number eight Ed Parker who stormed over the line with the additional points added by Noble to give Harborough a half time lead of 14-0. The second half continued as before and was very much an even contest but the visitors defence was outstanding and the home team could not find a way through. The next try was the best of the game coming from basic rugby; the forwards winning the ball and releasing the backs to pass down the line for Laurence Joel to touch down in the corner. The conversion was missed but a fourth try followed when the ever-present Parker charged down a kick to touch down and the conversion by Noble resulted in a final score of 26-0 to Harboro
