Brief summary-

This game was not for the faint hearted- it was ferocious, ungiving, brilliant and there did not deserve to be a loser. Having started well- we nipped over for two tries and looked in control of the game and Churcher's looked a bit sleepy after their long coach journey.

After half time however we had an extremely poor 20 minutes conceding one try and 3 well taken penalties from ill discipline at the breakdown and failure to listen to the referee. With 10minutes left and losing 21-10- the boys suddenly switched on again with their never say die attitude and clawed our way back in the game after Jack Ruston scored and Joe converted to make it 21-17 with 3 minutes left.

Now crazy time began and we must have kept the ball for what seemed 40 phases camped in their 22 and inching our way forward. 8 minutes into injury time Christian breached the defence to set of jubilant celebrations. What a game.
