Tough Win at Chew Valley
By Mike House
Defence dug deep.
St Brendans took a big squad to Chew Valley today to play in perfect conditions. No warm up required since the walk to the pitch got the heart rate up!
We played 4 quarters of 20 minutes so there was a lot of rugby. In what was an intense physical game of rugby we needed the whole squad.
We went two tries up with a try from Ethan on his debut in the first quarter and then Chew came back strongly with some good passing rugby and getting the ball to their wings. It was 3-3 at half time.
Both teams continued to play good rugby . St Brendans were put under a lot of pressure and it was some individual moments of attacking rugby from Will and Archie that kept us on top. Kian , Jonathan and Benji also scored tries.
St Brendans knew they were in a tough game and the reaction from the boys at the end told the story. A great defensive effort and moments of brilliance won us the game by 7 tries to 4.
Chew were a very good team and we thank them for hosting us today.
