It was a hard fought but deserved victory for the 1st XV in an actual game of two halves. Some amazing D on our line, outstanding turnovers around the park, using the conditions when we had them and 8 minutes of hammers at the death all contributed to the win. BOG went to Rory “cannon boot” Davis and Kyle “it’s clobbering time” Clarke.
OBs 18 - 12 Chipping Sodbury
With a mixture of old heads and young guns, an exciting OBs 2nd XV turned up to play Bristol Saracens in horrendous conditions on Saturday. A solid defensive first half display coupled with a poachers try from Adam Coates meant OBs went in at half time 12 - 5 down. In the second half injuries took their toll and with three back row forwards occupying 11,14 and 15, Sacarens spilled in for three more tries to leave the final score at 29 - 5. Great defensive display shown in what were shocking conditions. BOG Adam Coates on debut for some vital turnovers and a try from nothing.
Sarries 29 - 5 OBs 2s
Unfortunately we had to postpone the 3s this week due to lack of numbers, but that’s been the first time we’ve had to do it this season and the opposition also pulled out so it’s semi-acceptable.
Have lovely christmases one and all!
