Clifton 20 Taunton 10
Great match today! Everyone played really well and rose to the occasion. Taunton are a tough side and have some very skillful backs, their rucking is splendid which made it a tough match for us.
In the first quarter, we got an early try by pinging the ball out to George on the wing but we were struggling with the body position in the rucks.
In the second quarter Taunton got one back and the atmosphere started to intensify but our heads didn't drop and we carried on. The half finished at 1-1 but we were starting to improve the rucking which was mostly lead by Paddy and Will.
In the third quarter Taunton got one more which could arguably been held up but again we carried on and didn't give up. Theo and Sami made some smashing hits and rarely did they break our defence. Ben BM and Ollie B got 2 well deserved tries.
The fourth quarter was concluded by a try from Sami .
Taunton are a good side and we hope to play them again soon.
