Mr Turner’s Weekly Sports Review
U11- Year 6 Rugby v Manor Lodge and Duncombe Prep.
On Wednesday the Year 6 boys travelled to Manor Lodge for a three way tie against the hosts and Duncombe Prep. It was a great opportunity for the Year 6 boys to play on a fantastic afternoon. Due to illness and injury the Keble squads were a little depleted but all of the boys were up for the challenge.
The C team played against Manor lodge in a fantastic game with lots of direct running, great passing and assertive passing. The C team have really developed in the last for weeks and the match could have gone either way. The match finished 12 tries to 13 to Manor Lodge . It was a great spectacle which all of the boys enjoyed immensely.
The B team played their first game against Duncombe Prep. All of the boys were fired up and looked good with the ball, more organised in defence. This, again, was an end to end battle with both teams playing well with Keble taking the match 4 tries to 4. In their 2nd match the B team continued with their positive form, tackling well and making good ground. unfortunately Manor Lodge took the game 4 tries to 2.
The A’s were raring to go, there were a few B team players who had been called up and this was their chance to show what they could do. In the match against Duncombe all of the Keble boys showed tenacity in the tackling, great hands and outstanding rucking in the tackle area. With ex England player Keiran Bracken refereeing, the boys played extremely well. As the final whistle went the score was tied 3 tries to 3. In the second game it was a very close affair with both teams playing well. Unfortunately Manor Lodge score 1 more try than we did.
It was a great afternoon of Rugby and, as a spectacle, we saw some fantastic games.
Well done to all of the boys who played.
