Match Report

Result: Lost 5-4, Won 6-2

The match against Wisbech was not one for the faint hearted! Wisbech have quite a lot of boys to choose from and their team contained a number  that competed with Charles B for height! Both teams ran really well with the ball, whereas the tackling was a little tame at the start; tries were exchanged and the score was 3-3 at half time. As the game progressed, both sets of players became more determined and the tackles became more forceful leading to a couple of ‘good natured’ disagreements, which only lead to more determination with the tackles! In a very competitive second half Wisbech scored two tries to one from St Hugh's giving Wisbech a narrow victory, however I was really impressed by the way the St Hugh’s team played.

The second game was against Ranby and we played a more attacking, open game allowing us to score a number of tries with runs from the wingers. We also tackled extremely well to prevent Ranby scoring many. The final score was 6-2 to St Hugh’s.
