Harborough U18 Colts returned to league action at local rivals Lutterworth and despite having a number of key players unavailable came away with a well-deserved win. Lutterworth playing with the slope were initially in the ascendancy camped in the Harborough half but the Harborough defence has been outstanding this season and held firm. Harborough once again conceded a number of early penalties, one of which saw them losing a player for 10 minutes for a deliberate knock on. This however seemed to galvanise Harborough into upping their game with the front row of Matt Snutch, Alex Wright and Alex Adams making huge hits on the opposition and Harry Bissett have arguably his best game of the season. In the backs, scum half James Stubbs harried his opposite number and despite a lot of possession the Lutterworth midfield which is their key threat was snuffed out by the tackling of Harvey Slade, Joel Nance and Fraser Harrop and if they did manage to get the ball wide there was no way past Jack Batkin and Andrew Carr with Batkin having an outstanding game. The second quarter saw Harborough start to play the better rugby and they looked much more dangerous in attack. The pressure eventually told when a slick line-out move saw Timmy Waterfield crash over for a try that gave Harborough a 5-0 half time lead. Harborough were more dominant in the second half and added another score wide out through Sam Noble with a Fraser Harrop penalty making it 13-0 for what at the end was a comfortable win for Harborough that keeps them at the top of the table although they have played a game more then their nearest rivals, Leicester Forest.
