Rugby: 1st XV v Ipswich

17 Sep 15

What a fantastic start to the season! Fast and frenetic (no, not furious!) from the start, the intense pressure Woodbridge imposed on Ipswich paid quick dividend, and it didn’t take long for James Bellhouse to power over for the first score. But Ipswich responded well and replied very quickly to score in the corner.  A moment of reflection and regrouping: normal service resumed: our boys executed some nice phases to work deep into Ipswich territory. Then James Cherryman, second row, brilliantly chipped the ball over the defence and chased down his own kick to score under the posts. Ipswich stayed in touch, though, making the most of penalties to regain ground and the initiative, and score again. But back came Woodbridge in their turn: this time it was Felix Kibble who ran a hard line to bulldoze over for a debut try at the end of a fine phase of team play.  The first half ended soon after, with Bertie Nicholson hammering home our advantage with a penalty kick.  The second half did at least afford Bertie the chance to add to our score and our lead with a final penalty to complete his tally of five successful kicks.

Score: Woodbridge 27-12 Ipswich
