Farnham Saxons at the Horsham Festival
Woo hoo, 3rd place.
Well done everyone, a fabulous team day out, and I do think we have gone up another notch. It was also a chance for some newbies to face the heat of battle, ( Ollie, Sophie, Fi, Chad). Amazingly 16 turned up to play which meant us old codgers could strut ourselves sparingly. With a marked improvement in the speed of recycling at the ruck as Saxons won all 3 games to lead the group. This pitted us against our old friends OGs and though we gave a good account of ourselves in the first half, sadly we were out manoeuvred in the second as white line fever took over. The day finished off with a cracking 3rd place play off which we just managed to win by 1. So 3rd place!!! (out of 9)
Lots of good stuff, just too much to mention, our ladies worked really hard out wide both in defence and attack scoring and stopping loads, Steppy seemed to be everywhere, I loved the team try in the corner that came from a wrap and some crisp passing for Lucy to score. I did score diving under the defender into the corner and for once not as dummy half!! Tom and Max marshalled the team on and off the field brilliantly, thanks to Phil for the shade and Gary for the warm up and photos. Looking forward to seeing them soon.
BEST move of the day was the History revision group, awesome.
TEAM: Tom, Max, Fi, Tilly, Sophie, Lucy, Ben W, Ben T, Steppy, Phil, Chad, Gary, Ollie, Dave, Archie, Jeffsy.
