Shield

County Champions 26.03.14

The Under 14 XV crowned a fine season by defeating Welland Park School at Syston Rugby Club to become County Champions.  The opposition, as expected, were a formidable team with a big pack and a couple of speedy backs, but some resolute defence and flowing movements allowed the lads to score 22 unanswered points.

The early exchanges showed that we were in for a hard game, but two very well-worked tries gave the team confidence to move the ball.  The tackling was superb and, despite their best efforts, the big Welland Park forwards could not make inroads.  A third try just before half time allowed some breathing space before we had to play up the slope in the second period.  Again, excellent defence kept the opponents at bay and after a period of prolonged pressure the fourth try was secured.

Well done everyone who has represented the Under 14 XV this season.
