A small Tranby side arrived at St Hugh’s and were greeted by our boys. We provided Tranby with two players in order that all the boys could have a meaningful fixture and get as much game time as possible. We rotated these players regularly throughout the game and the boys showed great sportsmanship being happy to represent the opposition.
Tranby had the additional player, so St Hugh’s had to work exceptionally hard in both attack and defence to cover this. That said we ran in some quick tries in the first half, but Tranby stepped up with the support of our boys to match our tries scored.
Both teams showed some great attacking play and some good tackling at points. We kept pulling ahead and then Tranby would respond with another try, some of which coming from our own players. It was a great afternoon of rugby with a nice evenly matched game. The boys played well no matter which side they were representing, which was fantastic to see. Well done boys.
