Result: Won v Brooke and both Witham Hall teams
We arrived at Brooke Priory unbeaten this year and the boys wanted to keep it that way! The first match was against Brooke and we dominated from the start. Some excellent runs, particularly by Max, Rupert and William set up a convincing win by 7 tries to nil. We then had two matches against Witham Hall, who had brought two evenly matched teams. We needed to tackle well in the first of these games and we were particularly good at defending close to our try line. Rupert and Charles used the off-load very effectively and scored some impressive tries. Toby, Elias and Fergus were also making impressive runs into the Witham Hall defence; we won the game 6-4. The final game, against the other Witham Hall team, proved the most challenging and we were soon down 2 tries to nil. They had a very fast, strong player who was running through us, but when we decided not to give him any room or time on the ball we came back into the game. Some inventive passing by Charlie and Euan and excellent tackling from A-J set up a couple of tries and we were soon up 3-2. We eventually won the game 5-4 and continued our unbeaten season. Well done to all the boys and thank you to all the parents who travelled to Oakham to support us.
