We hosted a Burton Hathow team that consisted of a mixture of year 5s and year 6s. We agreed to play a game of touch rugby as Burton Hathow had not had any exposure to tackling this term. It proved to be a good game; we had more possession and made more passess than the opposition but struggled to make decisive runs through their defence. Too often we ended up making a lot of ground sideways and not much forward. Burton Hathow did make more forward runs and had a couple of very fast Year 6 boys who managed to run through and score tries. We improved after the half-time team talk and scored three tries in the second half through Sam, Rory and George.
