U10 Rugby v St Christopher’s 

27th November 2015

The first game of the season is always an interesting affair and with the new rule changes that have been brought in for this age group recently by the RFU the encounter with St Christopher’s proved to be no different. As this was their first outing as a new team is was pleasing to see the way that we started the game, Antony lead from the front scoring a couple of tries in the first half which were added to be Luca and Ali. We did concede a try through their captain. We quickly realised that if we concentrated on putting our strongest tackler against their captain we could limit their success. We ended the first half in a dominant position 4-1 up.

The second half was a more even affair as both sides ran in two tries apiece, ours coming through Antony and Ali. So a good 6-3 win to start the season. Areas to work on i) straighter line running ii) forming a solid ruck. Big pluses from this afternoon. i) great handling ii) good teamwork iii) strong leadership from Antony.

Well done to all boys plenty of effort stars. IP
