Ampthill 2 10 - 7 Cambridge U15

An uphill start ...

Ampthill kindly offered to host us for a triangular series of short matches vs two Ampthill mixed ability teams and Tring

We were very happy to accept as the players are a bit short of match practice, and it was noticeable that the players improved on the day as a team against strong opposition, the sun was out and the ground firm and dry, Ampthill were good hosts, the opposition wanted to play rugby and the refereeing was good, what more could you want?

Ampthill 2 10 - 7 Cambridge U15
Scorers: Jamari Dowdie-Wright, Tom Sandercock (1 conversion)

We were slightly handicapped in the first match as the coaches had decided to look at some players in different positions from their usual places, and we played uphill, despite that against a strong Ampthill pack Cambridge dominated possession and territory early on, only losing out in the scrums and by running into contact too often with no support, Jamari eventually got his reward for strong and confrontational running, but Ampthill forced their way back into the game and scored two good tries capitalising on some missed tackles and the advantage of running downhill, the experiment with three hookers in the front row might have worked but Ampthill were just too strong upfront
