Fairford  5 – Tewkesbury 7

This game was part of a three way set of games against Stow and Fairford.

Tewkesbury were hit in the morning with the loss of five players due to illness and injuries and came to Stow with the bare minimum of 12 players with quite a few playing out of position.

This game really was one of two halves. Fairford applied pressure on Tewkesbury right from the start and scored early after 2 minutes but missed the conversion. They then dominated play for most of the first half.

After  half time Tewkesbury woke up and after a strong period of maintaining possession scored through N.Knight and converted through T.Legget.

This was a close game  with both sides showing some great skills at times and good flowing running rugby.

Try :  N.Knight

Conversion :  T.Leggett

Team :  N.Knight, J. Brinn, W.Alonso, A.Newing, T.Leggett,  C.Janes, S.Thomas, C. Stone, J. Carter, O. Osbourne, E.Perry,  W.Sayers

M.O.M. – E.Perry
