After an enforced mid-season break the boys were very pleased that we managed to dodge the rain and play this afternoon.

This was a match of two halves, both of which we won, but the second half display was as good as we have played for a while. We ended the first half 3-1 up through tries from Sam, Will and Nicholas but we were not really playing in top gear. All this changed as we ran in six unanswered tries (Wesley x 3, James, Archie and Nicholas) despite going up the hill. The boys were organised in defence and showed a real fluidity in attack supporting each other and really playing as a team.

The result was even more pleasing because we were had to shuffle the pack in both the A’s and B’s squads today and shows that Copthorne has strength in depth at this age group which is always great for the future. #copthornesportontherighttracks
