Sevenoaks U11 Tigers attended the final festival of the 2016-17 season at Westcombe Park on a glorious day for some fantastic end of season rugby. The Tigers were represented by:
FRANCOMBE, GENTRY-POTTER, HEWITT, KILLICK, KITCHEN, LAY, MAYNARD, MILLETT,
PEARL, SATRETTIN, SAYERS, SMITH, TRUSTY, WILLIAMS
Our first match against Harlow saw us play some dominant, commanding rugby, scoring nine tries in total and conceding none. Our try scorers were Smith (2), Millett (2), (2), Lay (2) & Trusty. A great solid attacking performance and the perfect start to the tournament.
Our second match was against an excellent Blackheath RFC team. After going one-nil up in the first half, Blackheath responded in the second half with some excellent pressure which resulted in a try against us. Our boys put in a masterclass in defending and then pressurised Blackheath on their own try line to eventually score and win the match in the last play. Superb rugby played by both teams in the right spirit. A fantastic performance by our boys. Try scorers, Lay & Killick.
Our third match saw us up against a well drilled and physical Medway team. Our boys succumbed to two tries in the first half in a well matched game. We played a high-paced, physical game and we saw some of our best play and offloading, especially in the second half. The boys upped their intensity and played for each other resulting in two well earned tries to overturn a loss in the second half. A draw was the right outcome with our try scorers being Kitchen & Hewitt.
Our fourth match saw us play against a spirited Old Alleynians squad. Our boys upped their game and ran out 8-0 winners. Our tempo, game-play, passing, offloading and rucking was absolutely superb! Our try scorers were, Smith (3), Trusty (2), Lay, Gentry-Potter & Maynard.
Our final match was against Beckenham RFC where our boys continued where they left off and totally dominated in a one sided affair which saw us winning by five excellent tries. Our boys were now tackling very hard, rucking superbly and scoring at will. Their offloading and team play was quite possibly the best rugby they have played all season. A fantastic performance by all, with our try scorers being, Smith (2), Kitchen, Millett & Maynard.
