On another wonderful afternoon, our first team travelled to Oakham. Both teams deserve great credit for treating a large crowd of excited parents and grandparents to a thrilling match.
Stoneygate began the better and following a series of rucks, George burst between their centres for the opening try. However, Oakham fought back and at the end of the first quarter had opened up a 3-1 lead. The match ebbed and flowed for the next 30 minutes until final play was called with Oakham leading by 9-8. Showing iniative, Siddarth took a quick tap following the award of a penalty, fed to Kian who seemed to take the entire Oakham pack with him before going to ground. A quick ruck followed, allowing George to sprint over and bring the scores level. What a game!
Scorers: Siddarth 3 tries, George 3 tries, Will M. 2 tries, Will Mc, 1 try, Kian 1 try.
