In fabulous conditions both the Tows and Rugby SA lads produced a very competitive and entertaining game on pitch one today.
Tows came in ahead at half time leading by 22-14 after having most of the possession and territory and taking a 15-0 lead after some excellent attacking plays in the first 20 minutes. RSA took a couple of opportunities well, with Tows maybe switching off a little thinking it was going to be easy but eventually responding to extend their lead with the last try of the second half.
The second half saw Tows dominate scoring some great tries with some excellent all round support play and team work. Extending the lead and the result to 48-21 for a well deserved win.
This was all in all a great game of Rugby with our opponents competing very hard and physically up front and having some pace in the back line. But overall Tows played some mature and attacking rugby working very well as a unit both with and without the ball.
Result: Towcestrians 48 - Rugby St Andrews 21
Tries: Harvey (2), Stephen, Fin, Ike, Ollie, James, Sammy A
Conversions: Ollie (4)
MOM: Harvey Houghton - Some excellent go forward, two great tries and a number of heavy tackles in defense. Brilliant stuff.
