October 21st 2012 Broadstreet Festival With drop outs diminishing the U10 age group at the Broadstreet festival with only Old Leamingtonians in attendance the day looked lost. With agreement from OL’s we decided to make a day of it, OL’s with 14 players and Street with 21 players we split them into 4 teams with Street providing players for each OL fixture to even up the sides. 2 OL’s teams and 2 from Street
Broadstreet Warriors v Old Leamingtonians 1
Broadstreet Wanderers v Old Leamingtonians 2
Old Leamingtonians 1 v Old Leamingtonians 2
Old Leamingtonians 2 v Broadstreet Warriors
Old Leamingtonians 1 v Broadstreet Wanderers
Broadstreet Warriors v Broadstreet Wanderers
Firstly Warriors v OL’s 1 street who started the day very well with scores from David, Ben & Max (R1) gave the warriors a 15-0 win.
Then the Wanderers took on OL’s 2, the game was an even matched contest with OL’s scoring with the last play of the game drawing 15-15, with scores from Ryan x2 and Reece
OL v OL sorry no match stats from this game (I believe OL’s won)
OL’s 2 then took on the Warriors, who simply outclassed them winning the game 30-0, with scores from Max R, David, Ben T and a hat trick from Ben I well done boys. One of OL’s best players went off injured
OL’s 1 then took on the Wanderers who won the game 25-10, The OL’s team bounced back from the Warriors game in style, with the injured player returning from OL’s 2 for the last game, he played some great rugby scoring most of their tries. Scores from the Wanderers Will i am & Ryan
Then the final fixture saw Warriors v Wanderers, Warriors needing to win the game to win the U10 age group in the festival. The game was played in great spirits with either team not giving any ground, the deadlock was broken by a reliable Ben I using his guile and pace to score the opener, Josh (new lad) went in the corner scoring a maiden try so half time was 5-5. The second half with another 3 break away tries seeing the Warriors win the game 20-5. Another superb hat trick from Ben I and 1 from Max (R1)
The rugby that was played impressed the coaching team and parents alike so another great performance from the whole team. This weekend the 28th October the team travel to Rugby St Andrews.
Remember folks the clocks go back so an extra hour in bed, don’t get there to early!!
