Blues go back to the top after a thrilling win 24 - 20 against Paviors!

2 months ago By Peter May

A wonderful 'top of the table' clash of two excellent sides sees the Blues just come out on top 24 - 20! Well done you 'Blue Boys'!

What a nail-biting and totally exhilarating game this was for both the players and spectators as the Blues overtook their opponents to go back to the top of the league.

Outscored three tries to two the Blues took their penalty opportunities (unlike last week against Oundle) to just keep in front right up to the final whistle!

Tries from Steve Fraher in the first half and the decisive one from Matt Neild in the second plus some accurate kicking once again from Joe Daniel who kicked 1 conversion and 4 well struck penalties gave the Blues victory, much to the pleasure of the watching clubs Vice Presidents.

The Blues are next in action in two weeks when they travel to Peterborough where they lost last season following what the players admitted was a very disappointing performance! So they want your support at Fengate on the 17th November as they look for revenge!

'Blues Twos' lost 12 - 54 at National League I side Leicester Lions while the Colts won their league game at Ampthill 37 - 12 to keep them well touch for league honours!!

Where next?

'Zero Tolerance' on dirty kit upstairs at Waverley Road!! No members or visitors are allowed in dirty playing/training kit upstairs, nor are dirty outdoor boots allowed in the lounge!!
Blues have territory and possession but somehow manage to lose 3 - 7!! A Joe Daniel penalty was all the Blues had to show from this poor game, we look forward to the return in February!
