Dursley U13s vs. Cirencester U13s
12th November 2006
Match Date: Sunday 12th November
Venue: Cirencester RFC
Cirencester 15 Dursley 5
A very close game which could have gone either way.
Early pressure from Dursley saw Allison and Thompson make some telling runs into the opposition 22 but they were both closed down before they could make their territory gain vital. Slack passing across the backs allowed Cirencester to put Dursley on the back foot.
The defence held out well with a couple of important tackles by McKay.
Deep into the first half Cirencester managed to break through on the wing to lead 5-0 at half time.
With Dursley loosing two key players to injury, Cirencester quickly ran in two tries down the wing. It was then Dursley’s turn to pile on the pressure. Flankers Dinnage and Camm both had an outstanding game for Dursley foraging for the loose ball in the breakdowns and making several big hits throughout the match.
On a number of occasions some last ditch defending kept the Dursley forwards from scoring, but eventually Allison found his way through to score. Frenetic attacking saw Dursley try to score again but Cirencester held firm to win a very close and exciting match and inflict a first defeat of the season on Dursley.
Dursley won the second match featuring those who hadn’t played with tries from Vick and Rowe. 10-0
