There were four late cancellations last week, so not all teams had a run out prior to the Exeat weekend.  However, the fixtures played produced a mixed set of results for the Bedford School Rugby Club.

It was great to select a 6th XV to play Uppingham and the boys put on a fantastic display of running rugby to score a number of tries.  The 5th XV followed suit but the 4th XV suffered a narrow loss having fought hard to get themselves back to within three points of the opposition. Unfortunately the resulting fatigue meant that Uppingham were able to exploit a disorganised defence to score a try to seal the win in the closing stages of the game.

The U16 A/B and B/C teams put in strong performances against Wootton and Samuel Whitbread respectively.  With the C game cancelled, it was a good opportunity for boys to play up a team.  Some took this opportunity and have given the coaches food for thought on selection for Oakham.

With Rugby School cancelling the C and D fixtures, there were only two games at U15.  Both teams lost to very physical opposition teams.  However, on a positive note, both Bedford teams played with good attacking shape and just lacked the physical edge to capitalise on opportunities created.

The U14s faced a similar physical battle in St Alban’s.  The U14 A and B teams lost out by similar score lines.  However, strength in depth was a factor for Bedford as the C team won their encounter and the D team pushed the opposition very close.  The D team just fell off a few too many tackles in the latter stages of a game they perhaps could have won.
