Double over Minchinhampton
By Mike House
Hard fought win!
In cold windy conditions Minchinhampton made the trip to the 3G at Coombe Dingle.
Both teams matched up well and the scoreline may seem a little flattering.
The match was tight initially with SBOB having a lot of possession but no score for it. The pressure eventually told and the boys went 4 tries up.
St Brendans defence stayed strong throughout the game.
A match will always have swings of play and Minchinhampton came back strong through their big centre and scored 2 tries.
As the match went on players became tired and the spaces opened up and it became a little chaotic like sevens.
SBOB went on to score 3 further tries for a final result of seven tries to two. Tries were scored by Archie, Gwil, Jack F, Harry Y and Will.
It was great to see some players return from injury today to bolster the squad. Both teams scored tries by playing running rugby in what was an entertaining game.
Thanks to Minchinhampton for visiting today. We will look forward to the challenge again next season .
