The team in pool B, which for majority of the team they were getting their first taste of competitive rugby, did very well winning one, drawing one and losing two (by just one point) against some tough competition which included clubs like Rosslyn Park and Amersham & Chiltern (who they drew with 5-5 following 4 sterling tries by Jacob Knowlton). They competed very well with the coaches from Henley applauding their hands and ability to keep recycling the ball through many phases of play and score tries, which bodes well for future fixtures.
The team in Pool A, which had a couple players new to competitive rugby too, won their pool in 4 straight games with 5/6 tries being scored each game and only leaking a handful of tries in all. In the Final against Old Guildfordians, the Winners from Pool B, WRFC M.A.D. ran in 6 tries, one from their own try line following a sprint the length of the pitch by Jack Owen, who had fighting been fighting a raging temperature all day but played on regardless.
The winners trophy was awarded to the Captain Sam Mason by ex Welsh International and current Welsh Coach Rob Howley.
Both the coaches and the Club are very proud of all the kids who competed on Sunday and look forward to their next fixture against Bognor at the end of October.
Pool A Team - Sam Mason (C), William Taunton, Charlie Evans, Patrick Nally, Tom Fisher, Leon Morgan, Jack Owen, Josh Ramsden & Nathan Leal
