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

A really encouraging start for all 21 players, with everybody playing for 2 out of the 3 fifteen minute thirds. Bloxham scored 3 tries in the first 10 minutes with plenty of possession and good recycling at the breakdown. However, MCS fought back when they gained possession and scored 2 tries before the break. In the second third MCS scored 3 tries to Bloxham's 1, as our tackling was less secure and we were slower to get to the breakdown. In the final third MCS scored 2 tries to Bloxham's 1, giving them the win. However, many boys with none or limited experience of the game got involved and did their best. Whilst others with more experience lead by example and with greater confidence. Our communication, especially in defence, and our positioning will improve. Well done to all players and thank you to our supportive parents who made the journey.
