St John's School, Leatherhead 3rd XV vs King's College School (KCS), Wimbledon
On: Saturday, 26 Nov 2016
Venue: at Home
After what has felt like an eternity, the 3XV finally played the game they've been threatening all season. A strong start from the kick saw the boys impose themselves on the opposition early on, with tackles being made and the ball held. Reward came with a try from the forwards, taken over the line by Ben Greenbury, who's fine commitment and strength saw him later awarded Man-of-the-Match. The backs were not to be outdone and a beautiful chip into space by James Robinson set George Edkins up for his maiden try, duly converted by Ben Gadsby for a 12-0 lead at half time. Such was the depth of the team, rolling subs meant fresh legs and strong impact from the likes of James Biggar and James Walker but it was Harry Edwards who broke the deadlock of the second half, followed by a cleanly taken penalty by Gadsby to take the score to 20-0. Injury saw the match down to 13 men and moved to a smaller pitch, which suited Ollie Attard perfectly, diving into the corner to score a try, before the opposition hit back to score a consolation try to make the final score 25-5. The last five minutes saw the U6th playing their last ever home game and the passion was evident. Two games to go and it looks like we've started to add flair to the usual workhorse elements of the team...
