Today saw Tewkesbury U12s play the ninth match of the season at home to Old Richians.

This is always a tough and quite even fixture and today was to be no different.

As it was a hot sunny morning we decided to play the game over four 15 minute quarters to give the boys chance for drink breaks.

The first quarter was very even with both sides playing good rugby. Tewkesbury’s back look good when the ball was played through the hands and made some good ground.

The second quarter was dominated by Old Richians through the the rucks and scrums which paid off with them scoring a a try to level the games.

In the third quarter Old Richian carried on where they had finished and through some powerful forward play scored a second to take the lead. However Tewkesbury dug deep and scored again through the forwards to level the game.

In the final quarter Tewkesbury started to play the ball through the hands and were rewarded from retaining the ball through multiple phases with two tries.

Tewkesbury won again making it 8 out of 9 games this season and unbeaten at home.

Final Score was : Tewkesbury 28 – Old Richians 14

We are proud of all the boys at Tewkesbury  on another  great performance. Well done boys.

Man of the Match was O. Osbourne (Players) and B.Roberts (Coaches)

Tries scored by : W.Wallace (2),  B.Roberts (2)

Conversions by : S.Thomas, T.Leggett, O.Osbourne, B.Roberts
