Match Report
Bloxham School Yearlings C vs  Magdalen College School
On: Saturday, 09 Oct 2021
Venue: at Home

The Yearling C team had a tough first ‘full contact’ match against an experienced and well-drilled MCS team. There was some impressive tacking from George Ashworth, Thomas Kingerlee and Ignacio Robinson Garcia, however Magdalen’s strength at the breakdown ensured a steady supply of ball for their pacy backs. After a tough first half, Bloxham really rallied in the second half following rousing half time speech from Mr Dann, with scrum half Daniel Little scoring a fine opportunist try, picking up from the scrum and darting past three Magdalen defenders. This really lifted the Bloxham players, and although the team scored no further tries there was much more purpose to their attack. Harley Gibbs, Alfie James and Micah Tumilty made a number of strong runs, and had there been more players in support then several more ties may have been scored. The boys should be proud of the performance they put in, and will hopefully grow in confidence as a result.
