U8A’s Rugby vs Brookham
Score: Amesbury 10 vs 9 Brookham
The local derby against Brookham was an exciting spectacle for all who braved the wind. The opening exchanges were dominated by Amesbury running in some quick tries. It was clear that the speed of play and dancing footwork was going too much to handle. Credit for Brookham they did work hard to get back into the game. As half time approached the score line was slightly in Amesbury’s favour but with Brookham growing into the game. In the second half our defence was superb and on numerous occasions getting them to the five or six tags. Like true sportsman they closed the game out and enjoy a well earned 10-9 victory. Well done to all.

U9A VII Rugby v Highfield & Westbourne House

Score: vs Highfield 1-2, vs Westbourne House 1-4

It was cold and slippery underfoot when the Amesbury U9As took to the field for the double header against Highfield and Westbourne House.

The first game was a tough affair with both teams proving strong in attack and defence. Tackling was immense from both sides and Amesbury did well on many occasions to maintain possession in contact. Some great off-loading eventually led to an Amesbury score. Highfield manged to equalise and then go one try a head. The score remained this way until, at the very end of the second half, Amesbury had an excellent attacking play that took them within inches of the Highfield try line. Unfortunately the last off load slipped forward and the try was disallowed. A superb display of skill and commitment from the whole team. The final score was 1-2 loss for Amesbury.

The second game against Westbourne house result in a 1 – 4 loss for Amesbury, a score that did no justice whatsoever to the grit and determination on display from every single player. Westbourne House had some big, strong and quick runners however without fail and right to the final whistle, the Amesbury boys were putting their bodies on the line and going in for the contact. A fabulous effort from all concerned.
