This was our first home match of the season and it was great to see so many parents on the touch line supporting the team. Lincoln Minster had a couple of very strong rugby players and it was clear from the start that it was going to be a close match. Both teams kept possession of the ball well and ran strongly. The revised rules this season means it is difficult to turn over possession unless the opposition make a mistake.
Tries were scored frequently by both teams and there was never more than two scores between the teams. With 10 seconds to go and St Hugh’s trailing 7-8, Charles B managed to run through the Minster defence and score the equalizing try. 8-8 a great game and a fair result.
