Cambridge v Ely V Sale


Cambridge v Ely V Sale - Where's the pitch ball?

Cambridge 20 Ely 0
Score: Cambridge 20 Ely 0
Tries: Toby Goodman, Joe Woods, Finn Hutchinson, Tommy McGuiness
Man of the Match: Toby Goodman
Cambridge started off the stronger and never looked like losing. A strong centre partnership of Sam Martin and Zac Jones saw the ball move wide for Toby Goodman. With still some work to do Toby scored a fine try in the corner. Strong direct running soon saw Joe Woods power over for the second try. Finn Hutchinson then danced over to score under the posts. Finally after a good mauling, the power of Tommy McGuiness added the final try.

Cambridge 5 Sale 25
Tries: Finn Hutchinson (disallowed by the ref, but should have been awarded)
Man of the Match: Finn Hutchinson
An impressive touring side from Sale played Cambridge next, with a rather large prop with size 15 feet and some other massive players. This was a test and Cambridge never gave up. Finn Hutchinson scored an excellent solo try. The markings were non-existent and Finn put the ball down on the 5-meter line. He would have clearly reached the try line. Had it been visible. The ref who was a “rules are the rules” type of man disallowed it. With all things considered this was the wrong decision, so Finn gets the try.

Cambridge 5 Shelford 25
Real Score: Cambridge 5 Shelford 5
Tries: Sam Martin
Man of the Match: Sam Martin

Cambridge went behind to an early Shelford try and then got back into the game with a try from Sam martin. Cambridge then looked the stronger of the two. Alex Birkby is the Shelford coach. He is an excellent coach, a good man and a friend. However, when you are playing Shelford Alex is the most competitive man in the history of rugby. With Cambridge looking to take this game, Alex then bought on his Shelford/Northampton selected players. As Alex pointed out each individual was only on for a few minutes and then taken off. Although, in each case the player was only taken off after he had scored. It is only a game of rugby and our players didn't appear to care and they also said they enjoyed the game.

Thanks for reading.
