Match Report Y8 Rugby - Tuesday 8 October

Oxted v raas
final score 46 - 17


The game started well with James Bruce, making one of many darting outside breaks to touch down in the corner.  Sam Regan added the first try of his hat-trick with a powerful burst through the opposing centres.  RAAS replied with a try of their own making the score 10-5 to Oxted.  Both Sam Regan and James Bruce scored again, and were causing endless problems for the RAAS back line who were struggling to contain them.

Half time score – Oxted 27 RAAS 10.

The second half got underway with Oxted again looking proficient at the breakdown and being able to string together a number of phases.  Owen Hulme powered over for 2 successive tries, before Sam Regan secured his hat-trick from a lovely midfield break by Harry Hardisty, who picked a superb line to beat several defenders before kindly off-loading to Sam.

A great performance from the Oxted team who rucked and supported each other throughout the game. Our best performance of the season so far, although I am sure we will face tougher opposition in Howard of Effingham in the Surrey Rugby Cup.
