12s fun in the Sun
Lovely weather , great opposition and fast game of 12s
Clifton arrived at Bath with 13 players unavailable due to holiday , injuries and other commitments but undaunted the 16 that turned up put in a committed performance against a sporting Bath side. Bath likewise had many players missing and areed to play 12s with regular rolling subs in hot and fast conditions on a hardening pitch, good preparation for our 7s and 10s tournaments coming up. An even first half closed with an injury to Jack (the first of many) and we wish Jack a speedy recovery. The second half was interrupted quite a few times with injuries to players and a special mention to Bath who agreed to go uncontested due to front row re-jigs needed and then in the final few minutes loaned us a couple of players. Undaunted Both teams carried on playing and great 2nd half tries from Ryan and Fin who is making a habit of scoring good tries. Bath came back hard and on other days could have easily have nicked it but well done to both teams and coaches who approached the game in exactly the right manner. Speedy recovery to the boys that picked up injuries in hard and fast conditions and a special thank you to Mike and his team for hosting us.
