Match Report
Bloxham School Yearlings B vs  Magdalen College School
On: Thursday, 07 Sep 2017
Venue: Away

Bloxham’s Yearling B team had a tough first game of the season against a large and well drilled MCS side. Bloxham found the first half tough going, and struggled to recycle the ball, meaning they spent most of the half defending, conceding five tries. Bloxham rallied in the second half and the defence was much stronger; Cameron Smith put in some good covering tackles on the wing, as did centres Ed Baker and Matthew Thompson. As a result of their improved rucking, Bloxham started to receive more of the ball, with Toby Bint carrying the ball particularly well, and this resulted in a deserved try late on through Sam Blake.
