After Buckingham III being unable to field a team for our BBO 3 league game, we travelled in our longboats to Slough II to play a friendly as they too had been let down by their opponents. The game started with lots of pressure from the Vikings, led by big carries from the returning Michael O'Toole at 8. But the Slough defence stood strong and we had to settle for 3 points from the boot of skipper Iain Lindsay after Slough had been penalised at the breakdown.
The next score of the game didn't come until 12 minutes from the end of the game with Slough's impressive and elusive fullback weaved his way through our defence to touchdown underneath our posts, the extra points were not collected crucially for us as 4 minutes later we regained the lead after another penalty conceded at the breakdown from Slough and Lindsay slotted the kick to give us a 5-6 victory.
SLOUGH III 5 (Tries - 1)
