Copthorne 15 St Aubyns 20
Try Scorers: Oliver, James W and Duncan.
Our first match of the rugby season went fairly well, though we were disappointed to lose in a closely contested game. The boys have made some good progress, but are still learning some of the key skills needed to succeed in a match situation. We went down one try after about five minutes, but soon replied with one of our own, thanks to a good show of pace from Oliver. James N made some good tackles, and helped to set up our second try with a strong finish from James W. After going into half time trailing by one try, we opened strongly with Duncan running straight through the heart of the oppostition to score. Unfortunately we conceeded a further try and narrowly lost the game, but the boys have made good progress, even in the space of one match! Well done.
