Sports Report - Year 8 Rugby vs Blake

Tonight the Year 8 boys played Blake in an entertaining game of rugby. Both teams started sloppily, often dropping the ball and knocking on in damp conditions. That said, O Manchip side stepped and offloaded well to J Gingell who powered over the line to register the game’s first try. 

Scrum half Manchip took a good whack to the nose from a flailing boot and required some time off to attend to the stream of claret pouring from it which meant a slight change in plans. However a gift of a floaty pass meant the ever alert I James grabbed it and ran through 6 players to make it 10-0. Just before the break a Blake student powered his way through some tackles and seemed destined for the try line only to be stopped by B Cresswell and A Higgins in two superb tackles. 

After the break Chilton had gained extra belief in their passing and were led ably by captain H Hambly who moved to scrum half in Manchip’s absence. However for all the finesse and guile of Chilton’s play, W Thomas grabbed the ball from his own half and bulldozed over three Blake students and trampled on seven others to score a great try, 15-0. 

Blake grabbed a try back as the changes were rung to rotate the squad and the game became more even. A Higgins scored a fantastic try down the wing showing blistering pace playing a year above himself to make it 20-5. 

More Chilton dominance resulted in the tireless V Marsh stealing the ball from a ruck and speeding through a huge gap in Blake’s defence to make it 25-5. Blake replied with another try from their powerful inside centre but immediately C Sell, a late addition to the squad used his power well to get over the line. Blake’s only try scorer made it a hat trick in the dying seconds to make it 30-15 in the end. 

This was a fantastic team performance from the boys who were all a credit to the school but special mentions must go to: B Cresswell at full back made some huge tackles. Hambly for captaining well. 

A Higgins for some fantastic tackles and getting a try in his debut for the side. 

O Manchip for potentially breaking his nose and still coming back and running the game (a year above himself!)
