Saracens 0 Letchworth 37

True rugby weather arrived today for the first time this season, with the U18s match at Saracens being played in pouring rain and a 25mph crosswind.

Letchworth welcomed Mel back into the team for the first time in 2 years but Charlie was sidelined for this match with an ankle injury so we arrived with 12 fit players. Fortunately, Hertford were able to help us out with the loan of 2 players so the match became 14 a side which is very pleasing as we see far too few games at anything close to 15 a side these days.

However uncomfortable the conditions, the girls on both sides didn't let it spoil the game which was a much more even contest than the scoreline suggests. Although Letchworth managed to run, kick or dribble their way to a number of tries, for long periods of the game Saracens were camped near the Letchworth line but could not quite breach the determined defence.

As these few pictures show, it may have been a gloomy day but Nikki appears to be trying out some new dance steps :

Many thanks to Saracens and Hertford for a very enjoyable days rugby in less than ideal conditions.
