U12 Rugby- St Leonards 29/11/17

On Wednesday we boarded the coach for the journey to St. Andrews in Fife and a match against St. Leonard’s. Due to their school structure, this would be an Under 12’s match and hence, our 6th formers would not be included in the team. Luckily, they could be replaced with new recruits from the 4th form who would get their first chance to play with slightly different rules such as hand-offs being permitted in play.
The game started and Ardvreck were clearly hungry for the ball. It wasn’t long before Curtis M broke through the hosts line for his first of two tries in this half. He was soon joined on the score sheet by Kerr B, Jamie LM and Raphe P after some blistering runs and hard hits. After halftime, the home side came out of the blocks fast and scored first but it wasn’t long before Ardvreck were able to control the game again, dominating the breakdown and applying the pressure whenever St Leonard’s gained possession. Xan A, Dougal J and Jack H all scored and Jamie LM increased his tally by another 2 tries. All in all this was a very successful outcome for a team that had only trained together a couple of times. Things are looking good for next season already! (Mr Roberson)
