Today Andover U12's hosted Winchester. Winchester turned up with two full squad's, their Emerging Squad and First Team. After 45 minutes of excellent drills and games we switched to matches.
Andover played Winchester Emerging first and showed complete dominance, running in 7 unanswered tries. This was just a prelude to the clash of Andover and Winchester A. This was a much closer game, were Andover dominated defence, which disrupted Winchester's game plan. Andover produced some lovely flowing rugby, to set up Lewis Williams for the first score of the match in the corner. And at half time the score was 1-0.
The second half began with Winchester renewing their efforts, but once again Andover's defence to a man was fault less. Andover began to build pressure through the half and was awarded a scrum from about 5 metres out from the line. A lovely pass from Otto Bartlett picked Joshua Beard running on a beautiful line to score.
This was a really good day and full of excellent rugby in both in attack and defence and plenty of positive comments from both Winchester and Andover parents.
Special mention to Tom Cox for referring all the games and doing a brillant job for allowing free flowing rugby for both sides.
