Hard-fought local derby matches against Wymondham ended even-stephens with the school winning three matches and losing three, though we could, perhaps, claim the encounter on points count-back, 87-68.
The team of the day was the Under 13A XV who put on a very encouraging performance. At times, we completely dominated the game and ran in 6 tries (Adam Fox, Elliott Wang, Harry Montgomery, David Barclay, James White and Max Mian). The whole team contributed to the victory and the style in which the game was played bodes well for the future success of this side.
The 1st XV were worthy 18-9 winners. In a bruising encounter, both sides traded penalties before Wymondham pulled out a decent 9-3 half-time lead. After the break, we began to string some passages of play together and Billy Clayton (Player of the Day) and Aaron Murphy scored well-worked tries to secure the victory.
The 2nd XV match was a closer affair; at times, we soaked up enormous pressure, but staunch defence meant we were only 0-5 down at half time. A bright second half saw Cameron Johnson barge over for a converted try and Tristan Vince picked up from the base of the scrum 10 metres out and powered over in the corner. The 12-10 win was most encouraging with the whole team showing tremendous spirit.
The Under 16A XV came off second-best in a scrappy encounter, while the Under 15A XV paid heavily for a 10-minute period in which we conceded 17 points having been 13 points ahead at half-time. This was a game we should have won, but we should be the stronger for the experience. In an error-strewn game, the under 14A XV lost 7-15 though a much improved second half (which we "won" 7-5) suggests that the team has considerable potential.
A senior squad of players travelled to St Albans on Sunday 5th September and acquitted themselves very well again some very tough opposition. We defeated Ravenswood 1st XV in our first match thanks to a try from Billy Clayton after some quick thinking in the midfield.
We lost our next two group matchs by narrow margins and, in fact, were leading the Saracens Academy side, Oaklands College, until the last few minutes with Tom Ramsay forcing his way over from close range.
In the semi-finals of the Plate competition we went out to an early lead against St Albans 1st XV, thanks to two unconverted tries by Billy Clayton and Ben Place, however, their late surge proved too much and they managed to convert their two tries.
The final match saw us bounce back after a sluggish start, Billy once again found himself on the score sheet. Peter Larwood levelled things up with the last play of the game. Final score was 12-12. It was a very positive day all round and bodes well for the season to come.
Players of the day: Tom Ramsay and Billy Clayton.
