U14s fight hard against Gosport & Fareham
The U14s played a good match on Sunday 28th January, away against Gosport & Fareham.
The boys started strongly with the forwards making good ground and looking after the ball, but failed to convert to points. Nil all at the end of the first 20 minute third.
In the second third, from our kick off their number 8 sliced through the middle and ran in a 50m try under the posts. Unbelievably, from the next kick off, exactly the same happened again so we were suddenly 14:0 down. Some food for thought on kick-off tactics, the chase and also the tackling.
But the boys were not downhearted and fought back in the last third, scoring 2 unconverted tries to make the final score 14:10. Our hosts looked after us well in the clubhouse - food for coaches etc and man of the match selected by the players. We will definitely invite them to SRFC next season for more of the same competitive rugby played in great spirit.
