Rugby Summary – Week Beginning 25 November 2013

Monday 25 November

On Monday, the U13s hosted Helston in the County Cup and won convincingly 50-0 to book a semi-final away at Newquay Tretherras.

 

Wednesday 27 November

On Wednesday, the 1st XV were due to play Exeter School in the Nat West U18 cup Round 5 game. Unfortunately, Exeter conceded the game to Truro due to injuries depleting their team.

 

The 2nd XV played their return fixture against Penwith College, looking to avenge their only heavy defeat of the season. Despite being the better team for most of the match, the 2nds were not clinical enough in their finishing having created good opportunities to score and narrowly went down 13-15.

 

The U15s travelled to Wadebridge for a County Cup semi-final match and, after going behind in the first few minutes, came back strongly in the second half to win 31-5. The side now play Penair or Liskeard in the final at Truro RFC on Tuesday 10 December, with kick-off at 2.30pm.

 

The U14s also played a County Cup semi-final match at Bude, winning a very closely contested game 10-0 against a big and physical side. Truro now play either Callington or Redruth in the final.

 

Thursday 28 November

On Thursday, the U16 side travelled to Bodmin for a County Cup semi-final match and played very well to secure a 24-0 win against a physical side.

 

Saturday 30 November

On Saturday the 1st XV and 2nd XV played their return fixtures against Redruth RFC Colts. The 1st XV had a comfortable 47-0 win in a shortened game against a very depleted Redruth side, who were missing a number of their regular players.

 

The 2nds struggled against their counterparts and sustained several injuries whilst going down 12-55.

 

The U16 side played a rearranged home fixture against Exeter School. Suffering from a number of injuries and unavailability due to Duke of Edinburgh commitments, the side battled well but went down 7-24 to a good Exeter team.

 

The U14B and U12A/B teams hosted St Ives School on Saturday morning. The U14Bs won 36-26 in a very competitive game, whilst the U12s ran out comfortable 36-15 winners after going 10-0 down just two minutes in.
