Stevenage Town Rugby Club V Datchworth
By Michelle Amos
Tight match ends in victory.
Sunday the 17th of March saw Stevenage welcome Datchworth for one of the last games of the season. There would be four quarters and the boys knew only too well that this is always a tough fixture.

Luke, Joseph, Dylan.
Stevenage got off to a great start taking a 3-0 lead. Luke’s pace was too much for Datchworth as he opened the scoring. Joseph got the second with some strong, direct running and Dylan got the third with a cheeky chip and run which caught the Datchworth defence off guard.

Quarter 3 was low scoring but there was no lack of physicality. Both teams rucked hard and the tackles kept flying in. Joseph scored the only try, powering his way through to give Stevenage a two try lead going into the final quarter.

The boys were eager to finish the season on a high. The team spirit was excellent and Luke added another two tries to his tally. His speed proved too much for Datchworth again and although Datchworth scored at the end to win the quarter Town had done enough!

It was a solid performance by the boys and a thoroughly deserved win. A special mention goes to the three boys making their debut against a strong opposition. They really got stuck in so well done Jack, Owen and Charlie.
See you all next week at destination tryline.
Coach - Adam Amos - 17.03.19:
Another victory at North road. What a great team we have become, nobody can handle our physicality. We play with aggression and also a lot of heart, when we have the ball we are direct but when we dont we become hunters and work together to get it back. We rucked hard today and they couldn't handle us. All the Datchworth coaches were full of praise for the way you played and you should be very proud of yourselves. Just the Herts festival to go now; we all know what the standard was like last year so we need to be ready for some tough matches to finish off another supurb season. Well played lads.
