Venue: at Home

Bloxham School 1st XV 47 Malvern College 1st XV 22

A spectacular game played in brilliantly sunny conditions produced 11 tries. Bloxham reacted well to going behind in the first five minutes and reached half-time with an 11- point lead. In the second half the home team pulled away with some excellent tries from a fast off-loading game that Malvern struggled to cope with, and there were two tries apiece for Dan Eckersley and Harry Fellingham, while Sean Baker kicked six from seven conversions. He also scored a controversial try from a five metre scrum, with Malvern understandably aggrieved that the move appeared to involved the obstruction of a defender. Other tries came from Oscar Hunt and Dan Turner. The basis of the side’s victory was some strong tackling against some big Malvern forwards.
