Match Report
Epsom College Boys-U16A vs  Hurstpierpoint College
On: Saturday, 01 Dec 2018
Venue: Away

Lost 5-33

A difficult afternoon for the Colts in which they struggled against an unbeaten Hurstpierpoint side. The driving rain and a strong wind against Epsom in the first half proved tough conditions and although both teams looked to play with ball in hand, it was a struggle on a very heavy pitch. Nevertheless, field position was controlled by Hurstpierpoint with a good kicking game and the driving maul. Epsom, who defended extremely well for long periods of the game, could count themselves unlucky when Hurstpierpoint went over for the first two tries. By half time they were too far away to play catch-up rugby in the conditions, and even though the team fought relentlessly throughout the afternoon, it was to no avail. The boys need to dust themselves down and look forward to the local derby against St John’s next week.

Try: Lynagh (F)
