Dane Court 24 - 5 Wellesley House
The U12's first encounter on the rugby field proved to be a successful on as they overcame the more experienced Wellesey House team on Wednesday 22nd February on a dank and cold afternoon running and passing with a slippery ball was difficult and the many mistakes were indicative of a side learning the game and getting used to dealing with how to play in the wet. However there was a huge effort from those in the scrum and we made some good tackles when we needed to defend, Ed Baker, Dan Adams and the impressive Jo Wyatt led the forward battle and Lewis Doyle and Tom Halfpenny made the most of any space. Halfpenny scored three excellent tries, one of which was converted by Doyle who went over for our fourth try which he then also converted. Although Wellesey scored near the end it was merely a deserved consolation.
