Womens Division One: Vicious, Delicious and Ambitious 27 v 0 Old Edwardian

ON AN OVERCAST start to the day, there was a great display of rugby by Vicious; delicious and ambitious. A good run by the no. 11 for V.D.A led to the 1st try. They then turned up the pressure after a scrum and led to a try for number 7. Although their play was quality, perhaps they were trying too many passes and by-playing too much. A good crash ball led to try for no.10 and there was good phase play too. A good run led to a try by no.16 and then to top of the match another try for no.14

There was also a try for Rolfe again and for Dan Simcock. A notable mention for Rob Clark for his great work in the scrum.

 

Division Two Cup Final: Budgie Smugglers 10 v 19 St. Peters

An excellent run by no.4 scored a notable try for St. Peters. The eventual winners then lost their discipline for two yellow cards for no.18 and no.7. Then Budgie Smugglers scored for a consolation to make the game 19-10
