U15 v Bradford on Avon
Result: SRFC 5 - BoA RFC 17
In torrential rain and cold conditions SRFC put out a squad of 21 players (well done players and parents) against a Bradford-on-Avon (BoA) RFC side low on numbers. With training cancelled for most age groups the U16 SRFCs stepped in to the breech and filled the slots missing from the BoA Team (many thanks).
The condictions dictated the style of play and SRFC started strongly taking an early lead 5-0 through Arthur Gilruth at centre. SRFC continued to dominate the game and led 5-0 at the break.
BoA came back strongly in the second half as the BoA players and SRFC U16 started to understand each other better and quickly scored to make in 5-5. Replacements for each side reflected a loss of structure and the cold and wet sapped the resolve a little. BoA scored 2 more unanswered tries to run out 17-5 winners.
Well done to everyone, SRFC U15s, our players that also stepped in during the game to fill BoA numbers, the SRFC U16s players, BoA RFC, all the parents and Sean for Reffing... See you on Wed at training! Warm baths and hot chocolate required this afternoon!!!!
