So near, yet … 25.04.13

On 18 April the Under 15 RugbyXV  lost a very close-fought encounter with John Cleveland College in the final of the Leicestershire County Cup.  Unfortunately, the final had to be held over from last term due largely to the weather and some teams not completing their fixtures up to the semi-final stage.  Our opponents had played their semi-final during the previous week and this certainly appeared to have a bearing on the result as Loughborough were certainly rusty having not played for some six weeks.  Nevertheless, we came very close, eventually going down by 20 points to 24 after John Cleveland scored a late try.
