Colts A v Hymers College on tour
Colts A v Hymers College
Tuesday 7th November
It is always exhilarating to play teams that are on tour. The mystery of playing against a school that we had never faced before brought the usual mix of worry and excitement. And, having thought that this was going to be a tough game, we were not at all disappointed. To face some boys who played both Rugby Union and Rugby League, meant that we would be facing a type of physicality that we had not faced before. It was hard and intimidating! A couple of our boys nearly lost the plot at times, unable to deal with the ferocity of the tackling. However, sense prevailed and we passed and ran our way back into the match. Having been 3-1 down, we played some sublime rugby at times on a wet day, to score the 2 tries to equalize the match – well done Will R for scoring, but well done to Ed for controlling the game from the middle of the pitch.
A fair result in the end – but what a challenge the boys had faced! Well done to all for not taking a backwards step!
