Final Score: 54-19
Truro’s Under 13 rugby team made the four hour journey to Beechen Cliff in Bath to play the first round of the ‘School Sport Magazine’ National Cup last Tuesday. Beechen Cliff have some 180 boys in each year group and have been dominant over all local opposition in this age group during the last year.
Truro made an explosive start with the forwards in fine form and went into a 17-0 lead at half-time with tries by Allister, Hallam and French.
Beechen Cliff responded strongly after the interval but Truro’s defence was resolute and a further try by Allister 7 minutes from time secured a well-earned victory. Truro now play Richard Lander in the 2nd round after their impressive 54-19 win over Newquay.
