Rugby - U10A vs Felsted Prep School
Lost seven tries to six.
An entertaining and exciting game was just shaded by Felsted. 35-30.
Holmwood turned the ball over from the opening possession to go behind. The boys, however, began to play as we know they can and produced some skillful passing rugby to allow Jude S to score in the corner. Solid tackling and spirited defence kept the score at 2-2 until Holmwood knocked on, allowing Felsted to score on the stroke of halftime. Britton F had to brave the rest of the game due to a knock he received just after he scored a good try.
After the break, we were caught napping and conceded three quick tries. Never giving up, we again managed some good breaks from Edward S, Toby P and Jude S. Theo L’E could have scored but stopped before the line! Toby P, Angus M and Harry H scored good team tries from quick offloads and snappy passing, often from a jinky Edward S break. Jack E also made some good offloads and half-breaks. The team conceded a soft try near the end. Well done to the whole squad to an improving standard of rugby.
