Academy Match Reports 2017-18

Under 15 v Ampthill 7th January 2018

First match back after christmas for the Junior Academy players in a friendly against Ampthill.

Ampthill made the better start scoring 2 tries in fairly quick succession in first 8 minutes of match but Buzzards soon struck back with 2 of their own. The first quarter of the match was a tight affair with neither side getting the upper hand. Then, the floodgates opened with the Buzzard pack winning ball at every breakdown allowing the tries to come thick and fast.

The second half saw more of the same as LB scored 7 unanswered tries and 4 conversions to take the game beyond the reach of a tenacious Ampthill side.

The way that the Academy players played their rugby was at times sublime with every member of the squad contributing to a fantastic display.

Next week sees the U15’s away at Old Scouts in the East Midlands Cup.
