Berkhamsted U14 A v Haileybury U14 A

The Berkhamsted U14 A team trained hard last week and were looking forward to the final match of the season against Haileybury. Berkhamsted once again started well with the defence standing firm after a strong attack from Haileybury. In difficult conditions, both sides made costly errors and at half time there was still no points scored. Berkhamsted battled hard with the back row, all having an excellent game. Ben, who has been impressive all season, produced several important turn overs and ran hard in attack. Haileybury were fortunate to score from a well worked catch and drive putting them in the lead 5 – 0 with only 10 minutes to go. Berkhamsted came back strongly, showing good structure in attack to get within 5 meters of Haileybury’s line. With the final play the ball went wide to Toby who was bundled into touch a meter from Haileybury’s try line.

It was a disappointing way to finish the season, but the squad must hold their heads high despite the result. The team have worked extremely well and have looked like a well organised and structured squad. Playing against some of the top schools in the country each week has been a challenge that the boys have enjoyed and in doing so, every player has developed their all-round game and should be proud of the season. I have thoroughly enjoyed coaching the squad.
