Venue: Away

U14A v Tiffin

A biting wind, greeted us on arrival in Kingston, west London, luckily the sleet and snow held for the duration of the match but still the ball was slippery and hands were cold and we knew it was not going to be the free-flowing spectacle that we have seen in the past. With the wind at our backs for the first half, we held them deep in their own half, some excellent handling and running, with a dominant scrum. Jack Brand demonstrated his ability with the boot, chipping over their line which was then scooped up by Isaac Clarke putting Ollie Collins in for an easy try in the corner, the third of four we scored in the first half. The second half, with the wind in our faces, we struggled to make passes stick but excellent tackling from Fraser Awberry and Man of the Match Billy Nieland meant we were able to keep them to just two scores as we ground out a determined win in difficult conditions.
