U10 Rugby drew with Clifton Hall

U10 Rugby drew with Clifton Hall

An absolute try fest!

On a blustery September afternoon our U10 entertainers headed west to take on Clifton Hall. After a brief warm up, the boys won the toss and played down hill for the first half. Our U9’s linked well with some slick handling from Wilfred, Hamish and Jamie for Toby to crash in for the opening score. There was a back and forth that resembled a game from the NBA, with some fabulous attacking rugby, alongside some pretty soft defence, which led to a rather interesting halftime score of 45-40 to the hosts.

After the hairdryer treatment from both defence coaches, both teams stepped up their defence in the second half. This was in part down to Leo, JamesX2 and Arthur who brought an abrasive physicality all afternoon to contain Clifton Hall’s large ball carriers. However, the day belonged to our most reluctant, yet wonderfully talented rugby player Theo who jinked his way through the Clifton Hall defence to drag the Barnton boys back into the game. A fantastic game that ended up in a 65-65 draw.

Final Score: Clifton Hall 65 – Cargilfield 65

POTM: Theo & Arthur

Try Scorers: Lost count….
