Sydney makes it five!

From our South African correspondant

Sunday's planned U15s Thames Valley league match against Bucks Jesters could not be played as the visitors had only six players. However, as Letchworth Saracens were blessed with 10, an 8 a side friendly match was arranged so that all the players got a full game ... with the magnificent weather, it certainly was not a day to have players shivering on the sidelines!

Actually, the first half started with reasonably good weather and great rugby conditions. Letchworth Saracens had a rather bumpy start and fell behind as the Jesters no. 10 scored consecutive tries and our very own Sydney, who had sportingly volunteered to play for Jesters, added a further three unanswered tries. Then a bout of more typical British weather sent torrential rain to try to further dampen the spirits of the girls ... but neither side let that interfere with the match! Furthermore, the home side would not give up and with Ellah's positive captaincy pulling her team together they fought back. After two attempts and multiple phases, Letchworth Saracens were rewarded when their hooker crossed the line to open their account. With their spirits high, the home side took the game to the visitors.

The second half was played under somewhat drier skies and two different girls played for the Jesters. Letchworth Saracens kept fighting to close the gap in the scoreline with Sydney scoring two tries and new recruit Florence running in the first try of her career with a brilliant line to receive a well waited pass from the centre. However, Jesters then responded with two more tries to make the game safe. All in all a very enjoyable game for all.
