Rugby - U11 A XII vs OBH (H), Wednesday 24 September 2014

After the morning's rain, we were treated to a lovely afternoon of sunshine which made for perfect rugby conditions.  Both teams were solid defenders and players, leaving spectators and sports coaches aware that the game would be won by the team dominating the breakdown.

Holmwood demonstrated good structure and passing from the start, alongside some ferocious tackling of OBH’s strong runners.  Holmwood were dominant for most of the game and had OBH camped on their own line for most of the first half.

Well done to the Holmwood players!  It was very rewarding to see you use the skills learnt in training and watch you develop as a team!!

Result:  Holmwood 21 - 14 OBH

Rugby - U11 B XII vs OBH (H), Wednesday 24 September 2014

Holmwood U11 B won an even game with two good team tries.  The forwards won plenty of ball and the backs tried to spread the ball wide.  Good recycling saw Arnav T score and Charley G converted. 

OBH made some good runs but some good runs but some team tackles by Oliver R, Archie S and Max D prevented a touch down.  Matt B should have scored, but Archie S secured the win scoring his first Holmwood try after a good scrum. Sam B, Oliver J, Yaqeen P and Jack G deserve a mention, with Charley G converting the final try.

Result:  Holmwood 14 - 0 OBH
