Rugby Report – Marlow

On Saturday the rugby club hosted Marlow from Cradock. The U14s started the day off really well with both their teams winning comfortably. The U15s had a tougher day with both the As and the Bs losing. Our U16s had a mixed day with the Hawks (16As) losing narrowly 14-15 and the Bs winning 38-3.

The 4ths won 33-12 and the 3rds had to fight hard for their 26-21 win. The seconds had a really good game and won 43-0.

The firsts were up against a very spirited Marlow team. The half time score was 19-19 with tries from Charlie, Matt Royle and Chris Poole and 2 conversions by Murray Wilson. Marlow then went ahead with some excellent tries. They managed to keep the scoreboard ticking over with some excellent long range penalties and put 39 points on the board. The College boys kept trying and managed another 2 tries from Bame Malesu and Alex Menage to take the score to 31-39, but couldn’t catch Marlow on the day. The 70 points scored showed that both teams wanted to play rugby, however the College defence and error rate was too high and Marlow deserved the win.
