Woodbridge may have been the more diminutive of the two sides, but right from the beginning of the game the U14s showed that they were neither daunted nor intimidated. What they may have lacked in size they made up for in heart. Indeed, the boys sprinted into a three try lead, literally in the case of Phillip, who turned on the afterburners and twice ran the whole length of the field when Wisbech were looking for their own try. In defence, the Woodbridge tackling, particularly from the three Archies, was courageous and despite conceding some tries of our own we never looked like we would choke. We soaked up a lot of late pressure but successfully ran the clock down to achieve the boys’ first rugby win of the season. The spirit and resilience shown in this encounter highlights the opportunity tantalisingly close for an incredibly competitive team. Some of the boys are new to rugby and have had to pick up the techniques and tactics this term; others are more seasoned campaigners and this win will have given everyone confidence for the rest of the season. Well done to the entire squad – you deserved your sugar-coated reward!
