Rugby - U11 A & C XIIs vs Ipswich Prep School (A)


Holmwood had not had a training session since their last game at St. Cedds. Holmwood arrived at Ipswich and had a short, but intense, warm up.

Holmwood were dominant in the first half and spent most of the time camped in the Ipswich 22. Unfortunately the time spent there did not get converted into points! This seems to be a trend that is forming in the team – the ability to pressure the other team in their own half, but not score any points. Ipswich managed to sneak one try in the first half.

It was a similar story in the second half. The differences between the two teams were the running lines. Ipswich backs were keen to run forward towards the try line, Holmwoods backs just ran across the pitch, away from support only to lose possession.

Final Result:  Holmwood 0 – 19 Ipswich Prep


This was the last match of the season for the UII 'C' team. The team gave the best performance of the term. The backs and forwards played extremely well using the full width of the pitch to pass the ball. The backs made some great attacking runs and tackled well in defence. The forwards won all their scrums and competed well in the line-outs as well as in the break down area.

The 'C' team completed an undefeated season. Well done to the match Captain Archie L and the team: Cole S, Joshua M, Noah T, Lance L-R, Cedd R, Oliver S, Elliot W, Nicholas B, A-J P-S and Peter M.

Final Result:  Holmwood 19 - 0 Ipswich
