We took our U10 side to the Middlesex B Festival at Ruislip, on what proved to be a gloriously sunny day. There were 20 teams competing in the B Festival, out of a total of 54 teams attending the event.
The pool games saw us scoring 13 tries and conceding 5. Winning two games and only losing to Grasshoppers 1, the ultimate winners of our pool, 2-1 following a disallowed Chiswick try in the last play of the match, for a foot in touch??
Finishing 2nd in our pool we progressed to the Plate Semi-Finals where we met Harlequins 1. Chiswick U10s put up a brave fight, ultimately losing 2-0, to a very strong Harlequins team.
The team represented the Maroon and Blues extremely well, bringing many of the skills they have learnt during Sunday training sessions to the matches, with some exceptional off-loads, good passing, strong running and tackling. Our rucking is an area we need to work on, starting this Sunday!
