U9s at the Ealing Festival
Saturday 22nd October 2016
Maidenhead Rugby Club sent one U9s development team to the Ealing Minis Festival on Saturday (22nd October), a London centric festival with some big name clubs attending. This was the team's second festival of the season (and for most of the team, their second ever).
After the mist rose, the players enjoyed almost perfect playing conditions to display their rugby talents. The team showed some of the best support play at the tournament, keeping the ball alive and scoring several well-worked and well-earned tries. This combined with some excellent tackling and great individual efforts, made for very entertaining rugby. The players can be very proud of their performance.
The team of Adam Bicker, Benjamin Duxbury, Finlay Hayward, Sonny Kellet Morris, Mohamed Moursy, Charles Parry, Mark Stylo, Chris Williams played five games against Grasshoppers, Ealing (twice), Wasp and Barnes, winning two, drawing one and narrowly losing two.
