U10 v The Elms (H) Won 8-6
A super team performance saw every player make a telling contribution to the cause. If there were headlines, they would have been grabbed by Henry and Yohan. Henry’s dazzling footwork spearheaded many an Abberley attack and he scored several tries. Others were scored by Yoan, more direct in his running and quite superb in defence on three occasions. Guillaume made one try-saving tackle on the wing and popped up on Henry’s shoulder to collect the shortest of scoring passes after they had both crossed the try-line unopposed. Oscar proved formidable at the breakdown and played for some of the match with similar effect for The Elms. Gabriel also threw himself enthusiastically into the fray for both teams. John ran with power and enthusiasm while both Darcy and George carried the ball effectively. Dylan performed with the consistency he has shown all season and the upshot of all this strong play was a really exciting game. Abberley appeared the stronger team to begin with but our guests had the better of the second half.
