Man of the Match – N. Tawse

Special mention go to H. Blackham, J. Stevenson, A. MacPherson who stepped up from the C team and rose to the challenge very well in a physical game.

RBCS preparation before the game cost them. A slow start from RBCS allowed Claires Court to take control and dominate the first 15 minutes. They had some very strong runners and quickly went 12 points ahead. RBCS couldn’t really re-gain control of the first half and went 5-12 down into the break.

The second half was more of a tightly contested game, RBCS came out strongly and quickly scored 2 tries and put the pressure on Claires Court. Claires Court were able to eventually break RBCS’ defensive line with two kicks behind and scored on both occasions. RBCS were camped in Claires Court half for the last 5 minutes of the game, but were unable to convert the territory to points.
