U13 lose to a strong Taunton
By Mike House
Opposition pack too strong
St Brendans hosted an unbeaten Taunton side this morning at the Portway. The opposition were much bigger than us but the boys played well throughout and had to put another strong defensive effort in.
We started strongly passing the ball around and was rewarded with a great try from Harry Y. Taunton came back into the game slowly with their big runners , The game was finely balanced at 2-2 after a fantastic break from Kian and support play from Benji who went over.
St Brendans were losing some scrums and coming off second best at rucks but we managed to stay in the game. We unfortunately lost Charlie D to a fractured collarbone and wish him a speedy recovery.
Taunton size and direct running eventually told and they pulled away as the game went on but not before another try from Ethan helped the scoreline. St Brendans can be proud of a great effort in defeat.
We thank Taunton for making the trip up the M5 and will look forward to further fixtures next season
