Rugby U12 B XII vs Felsted

With an unbeaten record thus far, the boys were keen to keep this record going, despite playing against a physically bigger Felsted team. Felsted started the match with a very quick try from kick-off and despite the boys’ toils, we found ourselves 30-0 down at half time. During the break, the boys were asked to focus on their defensive lines and to pay special attention to their spacing and lower tackles. The team showed the team spirit that they conveyed throughout the season and some true grit and resilience as well as more focus on defence, resulted in Holmwood scoring an unanswered try to end the match in a 30-5 loss. The boys were gutted by their first defeat, however true character was shown in the second half. Well done boys.
