Bees U10s enjoyed some great rugby, welcoming Banbury to play on the new marked out pitch, in some very pleasant October sunshine.
The teams got to further their hands on experience of working at rucking, mauling and the uncontested scrums during competitive matches. Also the pitches gave some much enjoyed width for some great running by both sides.
Good refereeing allowed the game to flow, which provided an energetic and end-to-end 3 matches to be played out. Several phases of play included most of both teams getting their hands on the ball, which was fantastic to see.
In the end the different between the sides was marginal, around the consistency of tackling. However, both sides showed their skills and enthusiasm for challenging for the ball at the breakdown, which both teams should take as a huge positive for the rest of the season.
