Cambridge Rugby Shield

CRUFC U9s vs Shelford

Cambridge Edges a Victory over Shelford in Arctic Rugby

The Cambridge U9s and Shelford were evenly matched with a slight edge going to Cambridge with 4-wins, 1-draw, and 3-defeats on a cold and windy day.  All of the matches were hard fought with both teams struggling with cold hands and wondering what pulled them out of their warms beds on such a windy, cold (but dry) morning.  Shelford certainly tested our defences with some good strong (and big) runners who took the ball straight up.  Cambridge continued to build on our approach of support and passing and there were some fine movements with good passing and support going the length of the pitch resulting in tries.  Hats off to all the players for a good show on a tough day and particular thanks to Joe Brading, Alexander Humphrey, Alex Barker, and Findlay Brown for playing a 4 v 4 at the end to give the Shelford second team their third match.  Thanks to our friends down the road, the Shelford players, coaches, and parents, for a great morning and good solid rugby.
