U17's Win Against Chelmsford Colts
34-19 Win for our U17's against Chelmsford Colts.
With our original opposition. Harrow, unfortunately having to cancel, U17's found ourselves playing a hurriedly arranged Fixture against a Chelmsford Colts Team.
We hadn't played Chelmsford since early season U16!s, and with it being a Colts team, we didn't know what to expect.
It became evident we were playing a mainly U18's team. with a few U17's.
Brentwood started the First Half running down the slope on Pitch 1.
Within the first five minutes, our backs had broken through and put the first try over the line. Unfortunately, we failed to convert, not helped by the strong wind. At 17 mins, we were over the line again. our backs causing Chelmsford some issues with our passing and speed to the wings.Score 10-0, but again we failed to convert. Our 3rd and 4th tries came at 32, and 35 minutes. and we finished the first half on the 20 point margin, having failed to convert those two either.
Chelmsford started the second half by crossing the line and converting just after the 40 minute mark, with two further tries and one conversion coming from them in the second half.
This was a strong physical game against mainly older opposition, a good test,and our lads showed the high standard of Rugby they are capable of.
Unfortunately, the second half was marred by poor and unsporting behaviour on the part of individuals from both sides, which took the shine off a good match,and an important test for us.
This behaviour undoubtedly let down those not involved on both teams.
