A cold blustery day took the U8's rugby to Hull to play Hull Ionians and Otley.
With 3 games of 6 aside scheduled the first team to tackle was Otley. Scunthorpe got off to a great start by taking the lead by 2 trys. Along with fast tagging from Ollie Chant, George Waldron and Theo Price and a great collection of trys from Jonas Richards (6), George Waldron (2), Callum Shaw (2), Coel Gosling (1) and Theo Price (1) a fantastic attacking team managed a 12/10 win for Scunthorpe.
A very hard fought second game saw the greens taking on Hull Ionians. This was a very close match against a strong aggressive Hull side, but the greens held them with some inspirational defensive work from Coel Gosling, Theo Price and George Waldron. Alongside this, again the attacking skills were awesome bringing in 9 trys - Callum Shaw (4), Jonas Richards (2), Ollie Chant (2) and George Waldron brought the score to a 9/9 draw.
The final game saw the U8's face Hull Ionians for a re-match. There were exceptional flourishes from each player, but the Hull side sneaked in with a 6/5 win.
Player of the Week George Waldron and Tagger of the Week Ollie Chant.
