A tough day at the office for Tows against a full strength Bedford Blues firing on all cylinders

This was a tough encounter for Tows U18s who were in defensive mode from the start against a well drilled and skilful Bedford Athletic/Blues side. Many lessons can be learned from a team that crossed the gain line with every carry and threatened with every attack. Tows tackled and defended manfully but were out muscled by the hefty Bedford Pack who provided abundant possession to the voracious half backs. Tows stemmed the tide in the second half with the wind in their favour, threatened on occasions, but failed to breach the Bedford line. a fracas in the second half led to a Bedford red card and a Tows yellow, the only dark incident in an otherwise bruising but generally well tempered encounter.
