Rugby U11 A IX vs Littlegarth

Despite the cold and windy weather the pitches on Barbers piece were in excellent condition. The ground was firm but took a stud well. This was a very high tempo match from the first kick off. It was a pleasure to see the Holmwood players stepping up the opposition from the off. Holmwoods defence was tested throughout the game and it stood firm from many a solid Littlegarth attack. With the ball in hand Holmwood were spreading the passes and identifying the space. Unfortunately they just couldn’t finish the move to convert the pressure into points.

This was one of the best performances that this team have put together this season. Well done to all involved and the improvement that has been demonstrated this season so far has been incredible!

Final score : Holmwood 0 - 20 Littlegarth
