An excellent result away in Norfolk against a strong Crusaders team. Sam Wainer (captain) opened after sustained 10 mins opening pressure before 2 fine efforts from Haydn Sykes before Half time giving a 19:12 at the break. Scores in 2nd half from Ben, Tom, and 2 more from Haydn ensured the victory. A great team performance with controlled possession and accuracy, a solid defence was required throughout as Crusaders constantly threatened to get back into it. Some great kicking from Charlie Eaton who slotted in 6 from 7 conversions.
Forward and Back of the day went to Haydn and Adam Hateley (Adam playing his 1st game at full-back this season). A special mention to the U16’s who were given the opportunity to experience Colts rugby, to both assist with their development and involved with the larger squad. well.
A big thank you to the coaching team – splitting the team over 2 venues is not ideal, but new to us all. And finally a massive thanks to our 1st aid team as always ~ Kerri and Vicki at home, and a big respect to Tracey Hateley for travelling up to Crusaders.
