Epic battle in the sun at Failand

OB's lose by 1 point in 77 point thriller!

What a great way to finish the 15-a-side season!

Sometime in high scoring games, it feels like defence is optional. This was certainly not the case today, as both sides defended well. But both sides also came out to play great rugby, and so they did.

OB's went in to an early lead, ahead by 3 tries to 1 after 15 minutes. However, Saints fought back strongly and lead 32-24 with 15 minutes to go, capitalising with 3 tries after a yellow card for a high tackle by OB's (not malicious but certainly dangerous and warranting the card). OB's then fought themselves back in to the lead but Saints never gave up and scored in the last few minutes to take the game 39-38.

But the result was secondary to the spectacle, and both sides showed great spirit and should be rightly proud of a good performance.
