Match Report

Result: Drew 8-8

The first match of the season for the U10 rugby team was at Ranby House School. Due to the restrictions on tackling last season this was the first game of contact rugby for nearly all the boys.

We started strongly with Sam running through to score a try, and were soon 3-1 up with Rory and Ben also getting on the scoresheet. Although we ran well with the ball we were a little hesitant in the tackles and Ranby had one tall, fast player who kept running through us to score. We improved later in the game when we decided to have two boys tackling him rather than one! The score remained very close with Ranby edging ahead into the last minute, but we scored our final try just before the final whistle to make it 8-8.

Tackle of the match goes to Sam and Try of the match was Noah. Well done to all the players.
