Peterborough Rugby Club’s Under 10 squad flew the flag for the junior section today (October 14), notching up some memorable victories against the cream of Northamptonshire at the Kettering Festival.
“Both our teams in the event played really well,” said head coach Rod Barnes. “We had some great possession that we turned into tries. On the whole, it was a great performance in terrible conditions.”
The Under 16s went down today 47-17 in a hastily arranged game against a strong Huntingdon side, with missed tackles proving costly.
Prop Matthew Waitman scored all three tries, to go level with Brandon Tacticos as the season’s leading scorer, with seven apiece. Harry Hudson added a conversion to the tally.
“It was a tough lesson as Huntingdon are one of the best teams in the whole of the Midlands,” said team manager Spencer Lloyd. “But, ever valiant, Borough stayed tough until the bitter end in horribly wet conditions.”
The Under 15s were also in action, losing 25-5 at home to West Norfolk with Mo Gabiee crossing for their only try.
