We fielded three teams today in the Middlesex U7s festival. 2 x A squads and 1 x B squad. 15 motivated Chiswick boys turned up as expected!
- Team A1 lost 9-10 to London Scottish and 8-10 to Teddington. Then lost against Wasps by 1 try in the bowl quarter final despite being 2 tries up at half-time.
- Team A2 drew 9-9 against Wasps (with a disallowed try in the last second) and lost 7-6 against London Welsh. In the quarter finals A2 lost to London Scottish 8-6.
- The B1 Team drew magnificently against Harlequins 6-6 in the first game followed being outclassed 3-12 by Old Grammarians 3-12. In the final game we lost 5-6 against Twickenham.
So narrow defeats and a couple of encouraging draws against famous opposition. In attack and in our handling, we are as good as anybody. In defence however the boys will learn from the experience. We must defend as a flat line and as a team. We will work on that before the end of the season. We are a young club and we are building our confidence. Despite the disappointing results today, we will grow stronger as a result.
