Match Report
St James Senior Boys' School Boys-U14A vs  Howard Of Effingham School
On: Monday, 20 Jan 2020
Venue: Away

St James played against a well drilled outfit in Howard of Effingham U14A boys away at Browne's Lane.

The first half was a very close affair with St James playing structured, powerful and moving rugby, forcing the hosts to defend for long periods of time. The match was a very even affair in the first half.

However, the defence was strong and the Saints couldn’t find a way through, leaving the half time score at 0-0.

The second half saw both teams having relentless tackling and both teams were playing attacking rugby, and this wasn’t enough to hold back the tide and despite our best efforts, Howard of Effingham had a fortuitous intercept try towards the end of the game.

The boys shouldn’t be disheartened by the scoreline as there were lots of positives to build on in the season to come. The boys conducted themselves graciously and they can definitely hold their heads high.
