U11A IX Rugby v Shoreham College

17th January 2016

A new fixture on the card so a new venue find. We were greeted by a lovely school tucked away in the side streets off the Shoreham High Street. The match itself didn’t really get into any real rhythm as the game was broken up on a number of occasions as the referee quite rightly stopped the watch to explain infringements that been made at the breakdown. The stop start nature of the game made it difficult for our boys to develop the skills that Mr Ansboro had taught them. We had the majority of possession but missed a couple of clear cut chances as we knocked on as we were about to put the ball down for a try plus we also misjudged the try line on one occasion. We eventually lost 3-2 with tries scored by Ben and Luca. Their games master commented that our boys were very well drilled and deserved more out of the game and I agree with him, just a shame we couldn’t win it for Teddy Ansboro! IP
