Wednesday 8 November
Rugby - U11 A IX vs Finborough
On a bitterly cold and slightly breezy Barbers Piece the Holmwood boys were excited about the prospect of their first game back after the half term break.
The Finborough team were a very good side, one of the best that we will come across. It was evident from the kick off that it was going to be a physical contest. The tackling from both sides was outstanding. As we are now half way through the season and the Holmwood boys have now bonded as a team it is good to see some of their individual flair come out. Some of the attacking play was good, although more supporting players would have helped with our ball retention.
Holmwood were the better tackling side. This seems to be how they spent most of their afternoon - in defence and tackling hard.
Well done to the players for sticking at it on such a cold afternoon.
Final score: Holmwood 0 - 40 Finborough
