3-3 Great last minute tackle by James K to stop a certain try in the corner shortly after the referee blows for full time.
Final score 3-3
Great effort by all with the game being played in great spirit with the boys sharing some friendly banter throughout and a special mention to Jacob (Under 12’s) who put in some great tackles and did not look out of place playing a year up ” Well done Jacob” , THE big positive for all the boys today was not putting there heads down when at 0-3 so a great fight back well done to both sides with a couple more boys from the school showing interest in playing for OC’s…Watch this space.
A big thank you to the school for their hospitality today with hot drinks and food laid on for all. Look forward to playing them again soon.
