Nuns U16’s maul the Leamington U16’s Lions !

On a day when overcast, muddy and very cold conditions set the scene for a “down-and-dirty!” game, the likelihood of handling and running rugby was, perhaps, not on the cards but Nuns U16’s had other ideas!

From the warm-up, Leamington looked good and well-organised but it wasn’t long before first blood was taken by James F. barrelling over in true fashion which prompted a wake-up call tsunami of points for our team with Nick, Charlie M (twice) and Lewis all going over for tries, all ably converted, bar one, by Jonesy taking us to the half time break 0-33 up.

The Nuns back-line defence was stifling (commented on (post-match), in particular, by the Leamington coach) which Leamington found difficult to live with and even when they had possession, Nuns soon turned over for another large bevvy of points, including multiple interceptions as the ball held up in the wind on the Leamington 9-to-10 distribution.

Jack L commenced second half proceedings followed by Will, and then three further glorious pacey forays up-field by Lewis to score his hat-trick. Wide-out kicks and deteriorating conditions made kicking all the more challenging with only one conversion being added but complete credit to Leamington who battled to the last and not finishing the game without going over for a consolation try and conversion but a hefty day at the office for the boys in Blue, indeed.
