NMRFC 1XV vs Norwich Union 1XV


A tough day at the office. We started slow and gave them too much time to run at us. Against a big pack on a narrow pitch your defence gets tested, and after finding ourselves in our 22 for too long we let in 4 tries in the first half to our 1 try and a penalty to make the HT score 28-10.

The second half was back and forth until the closing 10 minutes. A highlight was a length-of-the-field try from Marc Lyons after scooping up a loose ball. We had left ourselves too big a job, but playing with nothing to lose, we put together some incredible attacking play in the last 10 to score 2 tries and finish 45-27.

Besides Marc, Ethan got 2 tries and Jay got 1. It’s a shame for this league to finish on a negative result, as we have had some incredible results and have earned our place in the top half of the table. But as ever, there was a lot of heart shown by those that wore the badge.

MOTM - shared between Ethan and Jay. Both led by example on their last league game.
DOTD - Christian, a silly yellow.
