Match Report
Oundle School Boys-U12A vs  Oakham School
On: Wednesday, 01 Nov 2017
Venue: at Home

Oakham School

The team started determined to win the first match of the new half term, and as soon as the match kicked off we were on the front foot, scoring a great try. The try was made by passing until we saw a gap and pouncing on our opportunity. But after 5 to 10 minutes we were caught off guard, and Oakham equalized. Another try from Oakham meant we were behind.

At half time Mr. Meadows gave us a few points to work on, and the team really listened and played much better in the second half. We were passing the ball to the wings a lot quicker so people like Monty Drewett, Thomas and myself could run forward at pace. I saw some great off-loads from Will C, Jack, Rory and Monty Jones. I think Joe was playing very well, getting the ball and looking for the pass, if the pass wasn’t on then he would run forwards and gain us many yards.

Nathan and Orlando were running at pace which really helped the team attack. We lost the game but the whole team should be proud of themselves, and I think the next time we play Oakham, I am sure we can win.
