Colchester U15 35 vs Woodbridge Warriors U15 5
9 Sun Oct, 2016
Lost 35 : 5
An entertaining match at Colchester and much closer than the score line suggests. Woodbridge were comfortably thrashed in the same fixture last season, and an improvement was all that we asked.
With just 13 fit and available players, kindly bolstered by 2 from Colchester, Woodbridge were an even match for much of the game today. Our forwards were dominant in the scrum, faultless in the line out, and dealt with most of the Colchester attacks. Our backs took the game to Colchester but just couldn’t unlock their defense and make the possession count. One less penalty and better ball handling were the only real difference, and who knows how it would of ended with a full team available.
Many thanks to our hosts and for a well contested game , and for their kind hospitality afterwards. We look forward to the rematch and a chance to even things up with a Woodbridge win.
