Match won by 43 – 26.
As the scoreline suggests, this was a very open and entertaining game of rugby played on a large pitch; both teams were eager to make the most of free running rugby. Woodbridge decided to do the hard work up the slope in the first half; Bergholt had three strong, athletic runners and took an early lead. However, as the game wore on it was clear that Woodbridge had the stronger all-round team and by half time we found ourselves with a seven point lead. Wise old heads reckon that with intelligent play the slope on Tollers is worth 10 points. Bergholt seemed to run out of gas and eventually space opened up enabling John Hendry to open his legs scoring 4 of our 7 tries. That said this was a much-needed morale-boosting team victory; yes, we still have work to do to be at our best but now we feel our season has truly started. Well done to everyone involved.
