A spirited performance on Sunday saw the Under 15 A team score the same number of tries as Reeds Weybridge but ultimately lose their first Waterfall Cup game by 22-17.
This was the best performance from the team for a while, with some sublime rugby at times. The team were well supported by a mix of mini stragglers from the earlier session, under 14s and enthusiastic (but very well behaved) parents and put on a good show.
Some stand out performances from Ollie Burnett (a tackling and jackling machine), Bennett with some powerful running and Lucas Westley with a Beauden Barrett’esque chip and chase. As a whole though, the team showed signs of gelling together and putting the training into practice.
Special thanks to Dave Paynton for reffing so well and for the catering team for the wholesome match teas.
Plenty to work on (assisted by the video footage from the VEO – thanks Carl), but very much enthused and buoyed by a strong performance.
