Under 14 Thornensians Away - Won 0-79

Match Report

It was another sunny and dry Sunday which saw Beverley Under-14's take the field against a big Thornensians side. They kicked off and Beverley took it forward through second row Vaux, From the resulting ruck charging No8 Rodgers was unstoppable brushing off tackle after tackle to score the first of Beverleys tries from half way.

The Thornensians pack sought to take back control and their big No8 and Loosehead prop went on several charging runs, only to meet a resilient Beverley pack, led by captain Hurst. They put the Thornensian runners down time and again and counter rucking by Bosworth and  Godfrey saw Beverley back on the  attack. The gaps began to show and the try count mounted. There was further tries from Rodgers and Captain Hurst - well deserved after his leading defensive work.

New signing, South African Liam Foreman had a great first game scoring twice from his centre position. It is testament to the maturity of this side that they managed to score 79 points in a game of less than 60 minutes. This was achieved by some excellently executed forward play, generous distribution by scrum half and man of the match Ashley and half back partner Prescott which saw both Beverley wingers Carling and Dugdale score four further tries each. In games like these some sides lose sight of teamwork, on this occasion the Beverley boys proved to have the maturity and rugby intellect to produce a great piece of rugby teamwork.
