Match Report
Saint Ronan's School Boys-U11C vs  Skippers Hill Manor Preparatory School
On: Wednesday, 05 Dec 2018
Venue: at Home

This contest will forever be remembered as The Battle of the Saint Ronan's 'Barbarians' v Skippers Hill. It was decided to merge the Saint Ronan's B and C teams to face Skippers Hill, who had been depleted by illness and injury. However, four quick tries (in four minutes!) to the visiting team left us with no option and reinforcements were called for. The first third of the match was clearly dominated by SH. With the Saint Ronan's line strengthened by some A team players, the middle third was an evenly-contested affair. It did, however, mean that the team was constantly being changed, using rolling substitution so frequently that it would have spelled the end of the career of any commentator! Mr Bruning brought an end to the substitution chaos , dividing the 27 Saint Ronan's boys into three teams. The teams were made up of players from the Colts A,B and C squads. They each played for 5 minutes in the final third, where Saint Ronan's, at last, gained the upper hand. The final score turned out to be 10 tries a-piece and an honorable draw was declared. Men of the Match: Hugo C and Jack S.
