We always end the Autumn term with a game against local rivals, Cottesmore, and what better way to go into the Christmas break than with a win. As with last week it was our handling that let us down and cost us some early tries. However, we had enough quality to see out the game comfortably without reaching top gear. Chris opened the scoring followed by Jack F doubling the lead just before the break and with Chris adding the extras we took a 12 nil lead into half time.
We camped in the Cottesmore half of the pitch for the whole of the second period and began to put phases together. The forwards took charge with some “trailer ball” runs and the backs began to get the ball through the hands. Gabriel finished off a forwards drive to open his account for the season before Jack F wrapped it up from close range; Chris added 4 further points from the tee.
It was a solid performance from the Colts but one which highlighted areas for improvement; lots of hard work to get in before Christmas. Well done boys!
