U15 Rugby - Gosfield 28 New Eccles 12

Tuesday 3rd October

New Eccles came to Gosfield a vastly improved side from last year. Our boys all looked resplendent in black Gosfield rugby shirts and played some fantastic rugby to win convincingly 28-12.

With some Year 10 students not in school due to a gruelling Duke of Edinburgh expedition at the weekend, the Year nine students stepped up to the plate and put in some spectacular tackles. Max Patmore, new at scrum half did a sterling job at getting the ball out to our back line who did most of the damage. New Eccles had some big, physically strong, boys and going through the middle was hard work. Over time the boys wore the opposition down and gaps started to appear. Just about all the boys on the pitch put in a fantastic run, and there wasn't a hot potato in sigh the whole game. Of particular note was the ferocity in contact of Ben McQuillan, the dancing feet of Ben Wyss, the quick thinking of Max Patmore and the face first tackling of any number of boys including a memorable one by James Middleton in the second half.

A particular mention goes to Kai Murphy who went in the scrum at second row and did a fantastic job, and Max Bartlett who took on the biggest person on the field front on and lived to tell the tale!

Well done to the all the boys, who showed resilience when going five points down and playing brilliantly to come back and win.
