Fordingbridge Under 13’s visited Chapel Gate, the home of Bournemouth Rugby.

A day of heavy rain and one in which the selected match day squad were going to be tested to see if they are truly a team or just a group of individuals.

The poor weather conditions, required a game of simple passing and looking after the ball, at times the 'Bridge did this well, taking an initial 4-0 lead during the first half, however a valuable lesson was learnt on the need for keeping focus and working hard as a team, with 'Bridge switching off and enabling Bournemouth to come back into the match.

The end result was a 7 to 6 deserved win for the 'Bridge and a credit to all the players, some of which are new to rugby, but also to current injured players and their parents for coming along either during training sessions or supporting the starting 13; a fantastic example of this team’s spirit and attitude.

Well Done All.
