Academy v Biggleswade 25th September 2016





LBRFC Academy v Biggleswade 25th September 2016
















On Sunday the Leighton Buzzard Colts side run out winners in a highly entertaining game of rugby against Biggleswade. Biggies started the stronger and took a well earned lead before Buzzards clicked into gear midway through the first period. Suddenly 0-7 became 12-7 as two well taken tries gave Buzzards the upper hand. Biggies also started the second period well and quickly tied the scores following some powerful forward play. In the second period the expansive Buzzard game finally started to reap rewards as a tiring Biggleswade were undone by some slick handling and excellent support play as Buzzards started to go through the gears and extend the scoreline. The visitors added further points of their own but  in the end Leighton took a deserved 33-17 win and go through to the next round. Notable on the day performances by Noah Heath for some strong ball carrying, Max Thomas for a fine display at full back and for Craig Stephen for two well taken tries.
