A tough day of rugby against some good teams with the following boys representing us:
BLACKMORE, SATRETTIN, WILLIAMS, DALTON, CHABOISSIER, BEAUFOY, KEENOR, DIXON, SUMNER, LATROBE, LENAGHAN, STRATTON, WALLER, HEAD, DUNCAN
We got off to a slow start and then got in our stride, with the last two games being absolutely epic performances.
Our first match was against Westcome Park, where we started slowly and got into the game in the second half. There were two excellent runs from Lenaghan giving us a 2-1 Win. Man of the match was Sean Lenaghan scoring both tries.
Our second match was against a well drilled Edenbridge team. We ground out a 2-0 win with tries from Dixon and Dalton. Good offload by Satrettin to enable Dixon to score the first try. Man of the match goes to Dixon.
Our third match was against a big group of boys from Beckenham. We really stepped up a gear in this match with a faultless display in powerful attacking rugby. We closed the opposition down and it really showed with a 5-1 win. The scorers were Waller, Sumner, Dalton and Beaufoy. Man of the match goes to Fin Duncan, for the most amazing tackle against the largest player in the tournament, superb!
Our last match was against a physical Whitgiftians team. This was an excellent and well disciplined game against tough opposition. Our boys stepped up a gear from the last match and played incredibly well winning 2-0 comfortably. Our defensive play was excellent and we were unlucky not to make it 3-0. A great kick from Satrettin enabled the lightning quick Keenor to latch onto the ball and score our second try. Man of the match goes to Satrettin, for good tackling, ripping the ball and offloading to team mates. Try scorers were Beaufoy and Keenor.
Seven different boys scored tries and all the boys got really stuck in. There was some strong tackling and some excellent pressure put on to the opposition which nullified their attacking play. We chased down balls, got in hard and played really well as team. There was strong running from Beaufoy, Lenaghan, Waller, Stratton, Dixon and Sumner. Some great all round displays from, Dalton, Chaboissier, Blackmore, Latrobe, Williams and Head.
Well done to all the boys, you were an absolute pleasure to watch and a credit to our club.
