Witham Under 13s booked their place in the Cup final with a 70-0 win
This squad has come such a long way this season. Today's win showed what can be achieved when great attitudes and hard work come together. Benfleet were short of numbers but still had some big lads and skilful players. Jack Hobden kindly agreed to play for the visitors to even up the numbers. From the start, Witham were the more aggressive attackers, prepared to drive in to the opposition, recycle and go again before sending the ball wide for the backs to finish. Benfleet has a strong scrum but were pressured the moment the ball came out. Each time there was a chance of a turnover, the Witham boys were quick to take advantage. As a result, the half time score was 35-0.
Another benfleet injury meant that numbers were evened up again but the home side were relentless. Another 7 tries gave a final score of 70-0.
