Reading Blue Coat School Boys-U14B vs  Shiplake College
On: Saturday, 15 Sep 2018
Venue: at Home

The U14B team got off to a fantastic start in the first game of the season against local rivals Shiplake winning 44-5.

RBCS started the game well and demonstrated some good handling and running. RBCS took control of the first half and used the space well as they pulled Shiplake’s defence from one side of the pitch to the other. It wasn’t long before RBCS were able to capitalise and scored their opening try through Jake Gaines. Tries then followed from Henry Temple, Will Thompson, Ollie Thompson, Harry Armstrong and Jake Gaines got his second before the half time. The rest of the first half was much of the same with RBCS going in to the half time break 32 -5 ahead.

The second half was much more of a closely fought contest as Shiplake were much more proactive in the breakdown and tackle areas. Some strong running from Shiplake along with some missed tackles allowed Shiplake to cross the line again. Henry Temple and Harry Armstrong scored their second tries of the game securing the win for RBCS 44-5 at full time.

Tries: J. Gaines (2), H. Temple (2), H. Armstrong (2), W. Thompson, O. Thompson
