1st XII Rugby v Hazelwood

8th February 2018

Snow on the ground in the morning and bright sunshine in the afternoon meant that the game was on. For once we were at full strength however we were somewhat negated by the dimensions of the pitch which was close to square. With our usual generosity we gave Hazelwood a 3 try start. It was a strange game with the wide pitch exposing some indifferent tackling and the score seesawed throughout the afternoon. 8 all at the. Lose was perhaps a fair result on what we saw but I genuinely believe that we should have come away with the win. As with last week we were a bit disjointed but there were some pleasing bits with Alex scoring a couple of well worked tries. Thanks for all the support on what was a pretty chilly afternoon. A decent result in the end against a very strong rugby school.
