St John's School, Leatherhead Boys-U12B vs Eltham College
On: Saturday, 03 Dec 2016
Venue: at Home
Saturday 3rd December
Home to Eltham College (65-0 Loss)
After a few weeks without a fixture, it wasn't a great day for St John's U12B side on this pleasant December morning. The lack of match practice showed; Eltham were very strong and ran in a good number of tries early on. St John's did improve as the game went on but at half time, the score was 50-0. The decision was made to carry on in order for more game time and the boys were definitely getting better. St John's came close to scoring a try but were caught out when the ball was turned over and at 65-0, the referee called a halt to the game.
The scoreline may be poor but the boys tried their best, their heads stayed up despite the score and whilst this wasn't the greatest game of rugby in history, there is definite improvement in the boys compared to what has been seen previously. We shall look to regroup ready for next week's local derby against the enemy.
