Rugby Summary – Week Beginning 5 October 2015

On Monday 5 October the Under 15 rugby team had a comfortable 73-0 county cup win in a shortened match against Mounts Bay and now play Camborne after half term.
On Wednesday 7 October, the 2nd XV played a combined Redruth/Camborne School 1st XV and won 36-5, with the highlight certainly being James Stevenson’s first ever try for a school team!
Newquay Tretherras cancelled the Under 14 and Under 15 matches against us on the same day but in the surviving matches, the Under 12A side enjoyed a good 25-5 win and the Under 12Bs won comfortably 65-5.
The Under 13 report from Mr Baker reads: The boys won 28-7. Newquay were dominant all first half thanks to the boot of their fly half using the wind and running some good lines. Jack was great under the high ball on numerous occasions and saved a number tries. We scored in the corner on the half time whistle after some improved rucking. Milo converted to make it 7-7. The 2nd half was a different story, 3 good tries and much more energy was shown. Josh scored a lovely pick and go blind to reach for the line to score. Milo scored again and converted all kicks. The game was won with 15 minutes to spare after working out their rucking. Man of the match was awarded to three players, Brad for awesome tackling against his old school colleagues, Jack for great defence and pressure under the high ball, and Milo for awesome goal kicking and attacking running.
On Friday 9 October, the Under 13s were in action again in what proved to be a tough cup match at Mounts Bay. The first half was a tight affair, although Truro pulled away in the second half with some excellent play to win 22-5, with tries from M. Pritchard and two from M. Hallam who kicked a penalty and two conversions.
