A really close game against a strong Telford team
A great game against two very different teams.
Whitchurch were the better rugby team but were pressed very close by a Telford team blessed with a couple of exceptional players.
The game was split into four quarters. The first set the scene for the game. It finished 3-3, all the Telford tries were from the same very fast back player whom we could not put a hand on. Whitchurch tries came from Big Tom H, Zac and Charlie.
The second period finished 6-5 to Whitchurch with trie from Roux, Tom H and the pick from Ben C who showed exceptional pace after great work from Dougs. Marcus's try saving tackle at the end of the quarter in torn boots should not go without mention.
The third period was our best. We finished it 10-6 up with scores from Freddie, Charlie, Matty and Tom E. Also notably the boys finally got to grips with the two Telford players, tackling them early in a much higher line.
The final period belonged to the away team, the match finishing 10-9 to Whitchurch thankfully.
Another hard fought win against stron opposition.
