Rugby - U11 A  XII vs St Cedd's (A) - Friday 14 November 2014

Holmwood seemed to be asleep in the first half of the game and St Cedds very large strong runners battled through the defence. The pitch was muddy and the ball was hard to catch.

In a sloppy game that was lost in the first half, some positives were evident – the scrum was won every time and there was determination from some player. Stand out players were Leo. S, Robert. W and George. L.

Holmwood competed well in the second half and spent alot of time in the St. Cedds half. They unfortunately were unable to convert the possession into points. St. Cedds scored most of there tries with single handed runs by their three main players.

Final score: Holmwood 5 – 50 St Cedds

Rugby - U11 B  XII vs St Cedd's (A) - Friday 14 November 2014

Another thorough and comvincing win was produced. St Cedd's scored first but Holmwood responded with improved ball retention and strong running by the backs. Again it was closely fought at the breakdown and solid defending by Holmwood only allowed two tries.

Holmwood handling and lively running proved too much for the opposition in the end. Well done to all the squad. There were no conversions and the team is really starting to express its' growing confidence. Keep it up!

Try scorers: Matt B - 3; Arnav T - 3; Max M - 2.

Final Score: Holmwood 40 - 10 St Cedd's
