Match Report

With Summertown turning up with only nine players, we kindly offered to give them a couple of players in each quarter. Thank you to all the boys that played for the opposition, apart from Oli, who scored for them! This did present some good parings within the game, especially the Lewis v Aaron one, with Aaron clearly coming out on top, I think Lewis must have had a hole in his pocket ;)

The game never really got going until the final quarter. This was mainly due to a lethargic MRFC, a hard bobbly uncut pitch and the regular switching of players. The poor surface was not one for a passing MRFC to ply their trade, but for a team with the over the top ball in mind and willing to not really use the middle third. This was to cause MRFC some problems throughout the game, come September this will not.

MRFC created a few very good moves in the game, but many were stopped before a clear chance was made. Given the surface, it was very pleasing to see them persist with the passing throughout the game and in the final quarter this style took control, ultimately giving them the victory. Well done boys.
