The U11 rugby team played away against The Elms.The Elms always have a strong team and we knew it would be a challenge for our young U11 side. The match started well although the pack were pushed off the ball in the set pieces and out jumped at the line outs but the defence was strong with Paddy, Charlie and Nick all tackling extremely well. In the second half although the pack began to win the ball in the scrums, we lost most of possession in the ruck with the players not going into the rucks and mauls with much conviction.  Also the backs lost their formation making it hard to defend and although the tackling was good The Elms won convincingly.
