Report

The game started very evenly with neither side managing to score in the first 5 minutes. Possession of the ball changed frequently with good interceptions made by both teams. LMS then managed to break through for a couple of successive tries. However, St. Hugh’s fought back with some strong running and a try by Charles. Our catching was improved today though we were still a little hesitant with some of our passing. Similarly our defensive shape was better than last week and we thwarted several attacks with some concerted tagging. LMS had two experienced tag players who dominated their running and scoring. However, we showed great character to keep persevering and we were rewarded with two more tries; one more from Charles and in the final minute a mazy run up the pitch by Aidan looked to have been halted before he played a lovely pass outside for Euan to run onto down the flank and score a spectacular try.
