Following their narrow defeat to Staines in the early season's league game Saracens arrived at Staines determined to win. However, a few of their players had cried off and they were down to 14 players, so well done to Adam for stepping in and playing for the opposition to make a game of it.
The playing conditions were much improved for this game and both teams set about trying to impose their presence. Saracens were the first score and with the conversion they were 0-7 up for most of the first half. Again the improved character from the boys came to the fore and they stayed competitive, scoring themselves just before half time. The missed conversion meant it was 5-7 at the break.
In the second half tactical substitutions and a better level of fitness allowed the Staines players to dominate and the two tries (one being converted) did not reflect this. That said a 17-7 win just before the Christmas break means we go into the festive period on a hugely positive note.
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year form the U16s
