A resolute performance for the U12A vs Cheltenham College Prep School (a)
After a physical warm up, the Abberley boys certainly started with a bang. Despite not having much ball, the first half was a very physical encounter with impressive tackles being made all over the pitch and the tackle area being hard fought. Seb T stopped several certain tries with great tackles on the wing, Max V and Ed P kept the centres at bay and all of the forwards did their best not to allow any momentum to gather amongst the opposition forwards. It was unfortunate that with the last play of the 1st half the boys switched off whilst Cheltenham took a quick free pass and scored a try against the run of play.
The second half continued in the same manner, although with more possession Ed L, Ed P, Hector G and Will H made powerful runs into the oppositions half. Unfortunately, Abberley could not finish their fine efforts - whereas Cheltenham shifted up a gear and scored a couple of quick tries. Abberley were not finished however, and with the clock in the red Ed P managed to finish off a great team effort and score an impressive try.
A very impressive performance with plenty of positives, keep working hard!
