Match Report

Result: 

Lost v Copthill and Brooke

Won v Oakham (3-2)

A great day of rugby, the rain stopped for the matches which was a bonus. Three tough games v some good schools who had obviously had their Weetabix for breakfast. The St Hugh’s boys put up a strong defence against all of their oppositions, many players from whom were significantly bigger but some gutsy performances all round were great to see. Matthew was captain for the day and led from the front and strong running from Aydin, Jensen, Euan, Ted and Wilf put us in some good positions on the pitch. Supported well by Will who led the charge in the contact areas and Arthur who followed up effectively, everyone played their part in the games and it all came together in a really well refereed game against Oakham which left the whole team buzzing with confidence as they cut through in attack and rucked hard in defence. Toby and Raul were especially involved in this last game as it was more open and allowed them a chance to get their hands on the ball and run in space. A very determined and resilient performance all round was lovely to watch - the benefit of these festivals is the opportunity to play, review, learn and address for the next one so there was clear development through the course of the afternoon. Well done and thank you to the parents who made the chilly journey to come and watch.
