Excellent first club win of the season today. The lads were asked to play with an intensity and a competitive edge and that’s exactly what happened. Despite the opposition turning up with 29 players, including a handful of fringe first team players, we took the game to them and were the better rugby playing team. Only downside was the penalty count that pinned us in our own half for large parts of the game, if not for that the score count would have been higher. Old Covents looked to be coming back into the game until an amazing try by Martin (Captain) Thompson secured the first win from an Earlsdon team this season.
All in all a great platform for the club to build on.
MOM: Matthew Priest and Jim Wood
