Match Report
Reading Blue Coat School Boys-U13B vs  RGS, Guildford
On: Saturday, 13 Nov 2021
Venue: Away

The u13B team lost 5-4 in a highly competitive match vs RGS Guildford.

Blue Coat got off to a flying start, pressuring Guildford into mistakes and moving forward with the ball at pace. Murphy Watt opened the scoring with a typically strong run before Zac Neo scored two tries, both of them intelligent bursts through gaps close to the line.

Guildford woke up and replied with two tries of their own, going through space outwide after spells of pressure. Blue Coat added a 4th as Byrom Crow bundled over the line to keep up his scoring form.

The second half was a different story as Guildford completed a fine comeback, they rallied and kept Blue Coat in their own half and managed to be clinical when they had the ball.

Blue Coat couldnt stem the flow of tries and couldn't find any rhythm going forward. Guildford took the lead with 5 minutes to go, Blue Coat got close several times but it wasnt enough.

Another good performance in a very close and physical match which will serve the boys well going forward.

Man of the Match: Zac Neo

Honourable mentions: Finn Briggs, Joe Woolhouse, Kailen Patel
