Wendens Ambo rugby

U7

Despite the muddy conditions, the U7 teams played some positive attacking rugby, winning 11 of the 16 game, drawing one and losing just four. Each team’s defence continues to show improvement, although will remain a key focus for the remainder of the season.

Wendens Knights – Won 4, Lost 0; Wendens Warriors – Won 3, Lost 1; Wendens Crusaders – Won 2, Lost 2; Wendens Musketeers – Won 2, Drew 1, Lost 1

U9

Wendens played two Royston teams and a team from the Cottenham Renegades. Royston were very strong and Wendens went down 7-2 in the first game and 11-1 in the second. The Cottenham match was much more closely fought, Wendens running out 8-7 victors. Man-of-the-match was George Glasson.

U10

Wendens fielded two teams and took on Cottenham and Royston. Wendens Knights beat Royston 11-2 and Cottenham 20-0, and Wendens Knaves beat Cottenham 10-0 and narrowly lost to Royston 3-4. Both Wendens teams played fast and flowing rugby, passing the ball well and making use of their entire teams. The defence stood strong, only conceding six tries in four matches.

U11

Wendens hosted Royston, fitting three gamers into the morning. Conditions were very greasy and muddy, not suiting Wendens normal fast game. Winning the first game 1-0 with a try from Morgan Evans, Wendens lacked penetration and the usual clinical finishing.

The second game bore fruit, some team changes suited the game well and Wendens won 5-1 with two tries generated from powerful running from Oliver Davies and one each from Hunter White, Evans and Thomas Powell.

In the third game Wendens played some organised and powerful rugby, moving the ball into space and tearing holes in the Royston defence. The best moment was Harry Vincent-West running the length of the pitch, beating five tackles to score. Evans scored another two tries to cap a brilliant morning, Fraser Murray securing a 4-1 win after some excellent hard work in the pack.

U12

The Super 12s travelled to Shelford for a pair of closely contested games, losing the first but winning the second. Despite tries from Adam Oakey and Harry Underwood, Shelford won the first game 15-10. Pride was restored when the second team snatched a narrow victory 30-25 with a hat-trick of tries from Jarno Longaretti and a pair from Alex Albright.
