SBOB draw against Broadplain!
By Mike House
SBOB show strong character.
On a very windy but dry morning U13 entertained a big physical Broadplain team at the Portway.
It was the first time we have played for a while and it was a very tight game. Both teams tried to play running rugby but the wind made handling very difficult. Broadplain used their forwards effectively to gain ground and it was only for some last ditch defence from SB that we stayed in the game.
Archie made a strong run to open the scoring before Broadplain came back to score 2 tries. When SB ran the ball we made good ground only for handling errors and small inaccuracies to halt try scoring moments.
Our second try was scored by Harry Y after a pick and dive. Broadplain scored a great try through their front row forward who showed great speed to almost run the length of the field.
SB went into the final quarter with a makeshift team after all our injuries. Rory scored a try with a couple of great sidesteps which set up a tense final few minutes. SB could not find the final accurate pass though to finish off any moves.
St Brendans showed great character and determination in the final quarter and the boys will take a lot out of the game.
Great game considering the conditions.
We look forward to playing Broadplain in the reverse fixture at the end of the season.
