Rugby - U11 A XII vs Littlegarth (A), Wednesday 1 October 2014

Holmwood had a short warm up and started the game slowly.  Littlegarth had some excellent runners who made a large impact on the outcome of the game.  After Holmwood's performance last week, it was a shame to see the rucking had returned to the ‘nice’ approach by letting the other team step over and claim the ball.

Littlegarth were a strong team but it was excellent to see Holmwood have periods of strong attacks and tackling.  This was, however, only in fits and bursts and the final score represented the flow of the game.

Result:  LIttlegarth 40 - 0 Holmwood

Rugby - U11 B XII vs Littlegarth (A), Wednesday 1 October 2014

The boys were slow out of the blocks and soon went 2 tries down.  Finally, they began to win some rucks and spread the ball wide.  Arnav T scored after some decent play from the backs.  Littlegarth had some tricky runners and Holmwood needed to improve their open field tackles.  Joshua M collected 2 kicks and returned 1 with a sizzling run into the corner, only to be denied by the corner flag. 

Holmwood made a good start to the second half, with Archie S, Sam B, Tom Li and Tom La passing the ball a lot better.  Charley G scored in the corner.  However, Littlegarth recycled the ball better and won 35-14.  Charley G converted both tries.

Result:  LIttlegarth 35 - 14 Holmwood

Rugby - U11 C XII vs Littlegarth (A), Wednesday 1 October 2014

An excellent away victory by the C team.  They tackled well throughout the match and made some excellent runs to score a large proportion of the tries.  Their handling and passing were also very impressive.  Cole S scored an incredible 7 tries during the game.  Captain Lance L played a pivotal role in the game and scored 4 tries.  They were ably assisted by Oscar C and Nicholas B who also both scored 2 tries.  Finally, Archie L and Noah T both scored a try each.  Peter M, Elliot W, Oscar D and Oliver S made significant contributions in support play and defence.  Well done to the entire team!

Result:  Littlegarth 10 - 85 Holmwood
