A Tale of 2 halves
Derby day victory
It was Derby day the club today as we welcomed North Bristol.
The 1st half started brilliantly with 2 quick trys from Tom W. The whole team played very well; we had total control with the forward pack, Tom DC and Harry running the show in the backs. Charlie Shipp, Tom DC, William and 2 from Logan made the half time score 7-1.
This was probably the best half of rugby we have seen so far from the team; BUT.......
The second half was a completely different story. North Bristol started to play very well and probably our boys feeling a little bit complacent after a fantastic first half, we started to concede trys.
In the end there was a lot of relief as we won by the skin of our teeth 7-6. We will learn from the second half, but we cannot take away from the great display in the first half.
Harry was man of the match, showing an outstanding performance playing in a different poisiton to usual as outside half.
It was also our duty day at the club, so thank you very much to everyone who helped out. In particular those who did over and above their usual call by doing more than double shifts and to those who turned up to help even though their boys were not able to play today.
