Rugby - 1st XIII vs Felsted (H), Wednesday 10 September 2014

The season got off to a good start with a very competitive match against the  Felsted U13 B team.  Holmwood were lucky to start by scoring 2 tries from interceptions, thus putting the boys in a strong  position of being up early on. The match soon became a very closely contested affair with both sides missing opportunities to score.

The boys played with  determination and flair which was wonderful to watch.  Holmwood eventually ran out winners of a very good game of rugby.  The only difference being that we were able to apply more pressure on our opponents than they did on us.

A big thank you to Felsted for creating the opportunity for rugby to win, by bring a well matched side.

The occasion was made even more memorable by the fact that Mr Michael Owen (Welsh international rugby star) was on hand to referee the game.

Result:  Holmwood won
